What is warehouse receipt?

A warehouse receipt is a document confirming transfer of goods for storage to a warehouse of a third-party organization. For goods that require certain conditions of storage we use premises with a particular temperature regime, humidity level and ventilation. The products are to be handed over to the owner with a warehouse receipt and a service contract.

Advantages of using a warehouse:

  • there is no need to rent the whole warehouse;
  • no need to hire personnel, train them;
  • no need to purchase expensive equipment for loading and unloading goods;
  • packing, sorting, re-sorting, labeling, equipment is already included in the service;
  • 24/7 security;
  • the owner of the warehouse is responsible for safety of your goods;
  • high level of logistics services;
  • you pay only for storage and any additional services.

The abovementioned advantages can significantly reduce the cost of storing goods and, in the long run, the cost of the entire cycle of international and long-distance shipping.
