A warehouse is a commercial building for storage of goods. Warehouses are used by manufacturers,
importers, exporters, wholesalers, transport businesses, customs, etc. They are usually large plain
buildings in industrial areas of cities, towns and villages
They usually have loading docks to load and unload goods from trucks. Sometimes warehouses are
designed for the loading and unloading of goods directly from railways, airports, or seaports. They often
have cranes and forklifts for moving goods, which are usually placed on ISOstandard pallets loaded into
pallet racks. Stored goods can include any raw materials, packing materials, spare parts, components, or
finished goods associated with agriculture, manufacturing and production.
