What is warehousing?
Warehousing is the storing of physical goods before they are sold. Warehouses safely and securely store products in an organized way to track where items are located, when they arrived, how long they have been there, and the quantity on hand.
In ecommerce, products are stored until an order is placed online, at which point the order is shipped directly to the consumer from the facility in which it was stored. In traditional retail, inventory may be temporarily stored in a warehouse before it’s shipped to a brick and mortar store.

Warehousing is an important piece of your supply chain. While it’s not the sexiest of subjects, warehousing and inventory storage affect everything from efficiently managing inventory to getting orders delivered to customers on time.
Though the principles of warehousing have not changed much over the years, warehousing solutions have evolved a lot.
With new technologies, urbanization, and the ever-growing world of online shopping, warehousing has never been a hotter topic — so much so that there has even been a shortage of warehouse space and on-demand warehousing popping up.
1. Warehouse management
Warehouse management is the strategic day-to-day running of operations in a warehouse to promote, improve, and ensure operational excellence. Managing a warehouse means overseeing all staff, training, inventory, equipment, safety and security, relationships with shipping carriers, and other moving pieces.
2. Warehouse operations
Warehousing operations refers to the processes that take place in a warehouse revolving around the movement of goods and tracking inventory. This includes functions such as receiving inventory, then placing each SKU into a separate dedicated storage location (e.g., in a shelf, bin, or on a pallet), and sending product to its next destination.
3. Warehouse management systems
A warehouse management system (WMS) is a type of software that provides the tools necessary to manage warehouse operations and inventory movement to save time and eliminate manual processes. Warehouse management systems help optimize inventory storage and tracking, warehousing operations, workload distribution, and shipping.
Warehousing and your supply chain
Supply chains are being redesigned to fulfill orders faster than ever before, and warehousing logistics plays a direct role in making that coming to fruition. To move product through the supply chain, most inventory is shipped from a manufacturer, often from overseas, to a warehouse.
Some warehouses are used for longer-term storage while others conduct the entire order fulfillment process, turning inventory over very quickly. Unlike warehouses that are strictly storage facilities, a fulfillment warehouse handles warehousing but also continuously picks, packs, and ships orders to customers.
This can be managed in-house by an individual retailer or outsourced to a third-party logistics company that manages fulfillment for many companies.
