What is a warehouse?


A warehouse is a commercial space vital in the supply chain that is used to store finished goods and raw materials and is widely used in industries such as manufacturing and distribution. Information is needed to move finished goods down the chain of distribution to the customer, and technology can increase how effectively this is achieved. Warehouses are also synonymous with distribution centers, where products can be redistributed to retailers, wholesalers, or directly to a consumer.
