Perhaps the main reason for outsourcing your warehousing functions is to align resources to your company’s core competencies. Other considerations are for extra inventory space when in-house storage is filled to capacity, seasonal public warehousing for peak demand times, or to expand with a new line of business.
But if you’re still undecided on whether outsourcing your warehouse and distribution functions is right for your business, here are five main benefits to renting warehouse space.
1. Access to Valuable Resources
When you rent warehouse space in a public warehouse, your business benefits from the advanced equipment and technology utilized by third-party logistics (3PL) providers. At Brendamour Warehousing, Distribution & Services, this includes a sophisticated warehouse management system, inventory management and tracking, a highly automated order fulfillment process, a customizable racking system, and much more.
Complementing the technology are highly trained personnel who expertly provide a wide range of logistics services. At Brendamour Warehousing, our employees have been trained in safe material handling so they are less likely to damage your goods when handling and storing it.
Having immediate access to a wide range of logistics services on an as-needed basis is especially accommodating to businesses and lowers business expenses.
2. A Means to Expand Market Reach at a Lower Cost
Business growth comes with a lot of peripheral expenses that can quickly use up available capital. But by leasing warehouse space, businesses can enter new markets or expand globally without using capital on facility space.
Outsourcing services, like warehousing, distribution and other logistical operations that support business growth, can be done more economically from an infrastructure, personnel, equipment, and technology standpoint. It allows businesses to lower costs and reinvest cash flow into market reach.
3. Faster and Cheaper Delivery
End customers are demanding faster delivery, straining the resources of companies. But by using a public warehouse, businesses can meet distribution demands at a cost that fits their budget. A 3PL public warehouse has a streamlined distribution system established that encompasses all facets of transportation management, whether it’s intrastate or interstate carrier, freight transport by land, rail, air, or sea, or local delivery.
Because it is fully automated, this distribution system identifies the most efficient and cost-effective route in which to get your shipment to your end customer. It’s a system unmatched by companies where distribution is not a core competency.
4. Frees Up Space
Companies that need more space in their main headquarters can free up square footage by relocating warehouse functions to a public warehouse. This rented warehouse space allows companies to expand without having to invest in a new building and eliminates the added expenses of property taxes, insurance, equipment, and other resources.
Public warehouse rentals give businesses flexibility when they need it. Businesses pay only for the space and services they use, so they can scale up or scale down as needed. This flexibility is especially beneficial during peak times, such as holiday seasons, when businesses are already overwhelmed or not equipped to handle high or unexpected demand.
At any time, businesses can tap into the 3PL resources of a public warehouse to get their goods out quickly to their distribution channels in order to meet consumer demand.
