CAPITAL INVESTMENTS IN WAREHOUSING
Warehousing: An overview
In very simple terms warehousing refers to physically storing the final product before they are ready to be dispatched to the buyer. A warehouse is an industrial space used for storage of both raw materials and finished goods. The financial capital required to purchase a well-maintained warehouse is huge and hence many firms opt for leasing a space rather than completely investing in it.
In India, cold storage spaces are available on subsidized rates and its maintenance and cost are very high for a firm to bear it solely.
