Introduction to Warehouse Professions

Are you looking for new work opportunities? Warehouses are designed to employ a multitude of positions. You can work for the rental company that leases the buildings. You can also work in the warehouse, eventually making your way up to a manager position and overseeing the entire operation. Below are a few key terms relating to professions within the warehouse industry.

  • Warehouse – A commercial building generally rented to use for storage. Most warehouses are designed to be large enough to fit a store’s entire inventory. Most warehouses can be found in the industrial part of a town because of the noise associated with loading docks and such work. You can find machinery such as forklifts and cranes within their walls.
  • Pallet – Usually made of wood, these platforms were created to help make the transportation of bulky or oddly shaped items easier through the use of machines.
  • Logistics – The system in which the movement of goods through an organization is planned out. Logistics helps keep assembly lines rolling and trucks on schedule.
  • Inventory – The products stored within the leased warehouse. The type of goods depends on what sort of work the owner is involved in. Typically, the purchasing for these storage spaces is managed by a buyer, whose job it is to monitor the inventory and keep the shelves full.
  • Bulk – The act of purchasing items in large groups. Many warehouses offer discounts off their prices when customers buy more than one of a single item.
  • Commodity – Something that is bought and sold. While most people use this word when referring to an unprocessed material, anything that has a supply and demand would fit into this category.

    Many businesses, like shipping, manufacturing, and furniture companies, often find themselves with a surplus of products, and no place to store them. Since these companies often produce large amounts of inventory long before it is to be sold, they will use large, empty buildings called warehouses to stock the products in. Warehouses are generally considered commercial buildings, as they are commonly used as a storage space for not just inventory, but for equipment, automobiles, and other items. These facilities can be rented, leased, or bought, depending on what is most convenient for the company owner; though, long term rental may lead to a discounted rental rate. For instance, if a furniture company needs a place to keep bulky merchandise, which they do not have space for in the store, it may be more convenient to lease the warehouse for an extended period of time. Say, however, that a construction company is based in the area and needs a place to keep materials, tractors, levelers and other large machines, they may choose to buy and redesign a large warehouse that is based near many of their sites. This way, the company is able to manage their business nearby as well. If you are interested in renting or leasing a warehouse, try to do some research in the area first. Before getting a quote, you might want to consider some of the logistics. It can be expensive to manage the rent for both an office building and a warehouse; if renting, the owner of the building may not want tenants to alter the design; finally, consider if it is easy to distribute your company's products from this location. Make sure that the storage facility meets your logistic needs as well, from storing vehicles to other important commodity items.
