Warehouse and Storage
The progress of the Public Storage and Warehousing industry has been closely tied to the health of its major downstream markets: manufacturing, wholesale and retail. As these markets continue to rebound from the recession, the demand for storage and warehousing services increase resulting in new facilities across the country.
Although housing everything from refrigerated goods to grain and plastic yard animals, one consistency that is the lifeblood of any warehouse or storage facility is the import/export of goods. This constant coming-n-going of products creates a web of transportation sources that not only include cars, trucks and foot-traffic, but often loading dock facilities that juggle railways, airports or seaports.
Sprinkle in the needed equipment such as cranes, forklifts, pallets and racks to handle goods in containers like boxes, barrels and drums and it starts to paint a picture of the immense complexity of these facilities.
