As a company involved in producing and/or manufacturing goods, you may be interested in having your process handled by a Florida warehousing company. Having another company handling the process and fulfillment eliminates the need to build your very own warehouse. In addition, you may want to have a short-term deal instead of a long-term deal where you can cut costs and control your expenses. One of our warehousing options available to you that encompasses this idea is known as Contract Warehousing. Contract Warehousing basically is a process that can help companies store goods in a specific location which can ensure that wares can be appropriately transported to a destination they choose. In turn, Florida Warehousing can handle the shipping, receiving, and storage of goods on a contract basis. This is one of our most customizable options available. You can lease a space for an allotted amount of time depending on the contract. Choosing this option can lead to lower costs and guarantee the period of service. These costs may be monthly, annual, or any set time. Typically you can extend this specified amount of time but the details will always be worked out ahead of time.

Benefits of Contract Warehousing

Lower Costs & Capital Investments

Starting your own warehousing space requires a lot of upfront time and investment however, contract warehousing offers some sort of compromise by allowing a certain degree of control at a pretty reasonable price.There are costs associated with renovating a building, purchasing equipment for transportation and inventory management, and staffing the facility. With contract warehousing in Florida, the facility is already in place and divided into zones for a variety of goods. This can include temperature-controlled storage, general storage, and dry storage. The warehousing company providing the space handles the employees, equipment and maintenance expenses. They are also responsible for most, if not all, incidental expenses, which further reduces the costs if your company were to manage your own warehouse.

Locked-in Service Period

When you choose contract warehousing in Florida, you know that you will have access to it for a specified period of time which can also be extended if need be. Whether you plan on intending to use the space itself for a year or even ten years, the contract warehousing contract protects your company from any potential unexpected expenses but also reduces the stress and cost of running a warehouse itself. The contract for warehousing will specify the cost in either monthly or even annual payments, along with possible changes over the contract period. If you choose to, there will be language that details the process for extending the contract period for however long you need their services.
