As a company involved in producing and/or manufacturing goods, you may be interested in having your process handled by a 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 is Contract Warehousing. We can handle the shipping, receiving, and storage of goods on a contract basis. This is the most customizable option 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. 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 be extended. Whether you intend to use the space for a year or ten years, the contract protects your company from unexpected expenses and reduces the stress and cost of running a warehouse. The contract for warehousing will specify the cost in either monthly or 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.
Contract warehouses usually act as a fulfillment center as well so they offer packaging and shipping services. These are useful services any business can benefit from if they are expanding or experiencing sharp increases in demand for their products. With contract warehousing, a business can trust the logistics providers to keep goods flowing to and from storage on time. Developing long-term relationships with reliable partners like Florida Warehousing is important to the longevity of a business.
