Just as the products in the pantry, kitchen, storage room or bathroom were purchased with different intentions, the goods that are in a warehouse and the associated warehouse also have different functions. So, it is not only categorized into different types of storage but also distinguished between different storage functions. In the following we would like to explain exactly these subdivisions.
Very similar functions are safeguarding and provisioning. Both ensure that goods can be in the right place at the right time - despite crises, fluctuations in demand or possible difficulties in the supply chain. In the speculation function, the prices of goods are expected to rise, while in the refinement function, the value of wine and cheese, for example, is increased during the storage period. The presentation function is familiar to consumers primarily from the retail trade, where goods are presented in salesrooms. The disposal function is also very important for the environment. Here, empties, waste and production residues are stored until they are properly disposed of or reused. Warehousing1 has the optimal warehouse for every purpose.

The function of the buffer storage is to smoothly compensate for disruptions and fluctuations in different production steps of the distribution chain. If problems arise in the first steps of production, the production process can be handled without further delays thanks to the reserves in the buffer stock. To optimize storage costs here, it is crucial not to have too much buffer stock and still be prepared for delay problems.
Similar to the pantry in every kitchen, the storage facility also fulfills the supply function, the buffer function and the speculation function. In the same way, seasonal goods are also stored to bridge the time when they are no longer available. In this case, the stock level decreases from time to time due to regular goods issues.
In the central warehouse, goods are not divided into storage areas at different locations, but are stored in bundles at one location. The top priority here is, of course, cost savings: the reduction of inventories, the bundling of goods, the minimization of transport routes and transport costs, and the opportunity to take advantage of volume discounts make the central warehouse attractive for numerous companies.
If the goods are not yet to be released for free circulation, they are delivered to a bonded warehouse at short notice. Here, duty unpaid items can be temporarily stored duty free. A distinction is made between public bonded warehouses, which are available to everyone, and private bonded warehouses, which must be set up for a very large storage requirement of a person.
