You may have reached the point where your business is getting bigger than your premises, so let’s take a look at some options for the movement and storage of your goods:
A warehouse that’s close by
If you’re looking for more space to store goods for feeding your production line, then you will need to source for a warehouse that’s close by your premises. This will help reduce your transport costs, minimise travel time for the goods & facilitate stock checks.
A warehouse that’s centrally located
If your goods are distributed locally, then it’s a good idea to get some data on where the majority of the larger customers’ delivery points are and plan for storage midway to these locations. It could be that you need warehousing in different states in order to streamline your long-haul charges.
A warehouse that's close to the port
If your goods are mainly going for export then you could consider a warehouse closer to the port or ultimately, inside a free trade zone. At any rate, we have all these options available to you. One of the benefits of having your operations in a free zone, is that you can save on the duties & SST potentially charged on your raw materials & export goods.
