There are several factors including true cost while choosing a warehouse location for your business. Here are 7 factors
Layout and flow of Building
The layout of any warehouse is determined by the type of operations conducted inside it. Older warehouse buildings are not suitable for modern. Ceiling height, as well as column spacing is the factors for the materials accommodation in given space.
Availability of Skilled Workforce
Considering skilled work force in warehouse is a great task. The team has to be trained for handling any type of goods like perishables, Dangerous goods, Delicate products etc. carefully. So I suggest having supply of mixed skilled labors in that warehouse.
Proximity to Major Linkages
Means of transport you are going to use is the most important factor for choosing warehouse according to it. If this is the case you can save your more money on transportation. Whatever is your need it is vital to have your site easily accessible to such a means of transport. If the goods are less perishable and shipments are not too sensitive then opting for rail transport can be an ideal solution.
Material Handling Capabilities
Another major factor that you should consider while choosing a location for the warehouse is the availability of the handling equipment and staging facilities. It is very certain that a highly intense distribution requires cross docks. You should also check for enough storage space in warehouse building.
Warehouse facility must be capable of accommodating the inventory and fit in the size of your products. For all startups and new companies, it is important to ensure that there is enough room around the facility for expansion. This will help save time and money leads to intelligent organizational development
Before buying any warehouse facility, it is very important for you to enquire about rules and regulations and policies in that location. There may be certain locations that do not allow storage of certain types of goods. If you deal in those goods, it is best to avoid them to avoid them.
