What exactly is warehousing? While not the most memorable part of a business, it is vital to any business that has a large amount of physical assets. Not every business has the real estate and capital to invest in a location dedicated to storing their assets. That is where warehousing comes in. With over 25 years of experience and 300,000 sq/ft of storage space, Olympia can let you know just how important warehousing is.

What is Warehousing?

Simply put, warehousing is the process of storing physical assets for sale or distribution. Warehouses are used by all different types of businesses which need to temporarily store products in bulk before either shipping them to other locations or individually to end consumers. Amazon is the most notable example, storing millions of items and distributing them accordingly across the country from every location. A well maintained warehouse can keep your assets moving to wherever you need it to be in a timely manner.

Why Outsource Warehouses?

Not every company would be able to afford their own warehouses. It is a huge commitment and a large amount of space dedicated to just storing things. Not to mention, the extra cost of hiring people to keep track of and organizing the assets is yet another huge cost. That’s why getting companies that are able to provide all those services for you is a much cheaper alternative. Companies like Olympia not only store, but also receive and distribute from the warehouse. Learn more about our services here.
