What is a bearing?

The term warehouse is short for warehouse. Materials and goods are stored in warehouses that are only needed later and must be kept available for later use, e.g. for sale. A warehouse is an entire building or individual premises.

A warehouse incurs operating costs and requires a lot of space. In the manufacturing sector, the just-in-time process is therefore used to save storage space. This means that the goods are delivered exactly when they are needed for production.

These types of storage exist in companies, for example:

  • Warehouse
  • Material store
  • Workshop warehouse
  • Interim storage
  • Shipping warehouse
  • Raw material warehouse
  • Sales warehouse
  • Finished goods warehouse
