Location matters in warehousing!

Location matters when it comes to business. Whether it’s physical or virtual or both, it’s important to have a presence where your clientele are present. – Hendrith Vanlon Smith Jr, Popular American banker, and author

True to the words of a popular American banker and author, the location of a warehouse plays a critical role in the success of any commercial venture. Apart from reducing time, effort, and costs, it helps to streamline the whole process. Several key factors like distance, storage requirements, flexibility, supply chain logistics, environmental conditions, transport network, and other requirements should be considered while selecting the location for the warehouse.

One company that has made each one of its warehouses a profit center is Amazon India. It has established and successfully maintains over 70 warehouses all over India. The location of the Indian Amazon warehouses makes all the difference. The warehouses are located near population centers so it makes it easier to deliver online orders quickly and stay ahead of the competition.


The location of the warehouse is critical for the success of the business. The distance between the warehouse, manufacturing facility, the end-users, and customers need to be taken into consideration when selecting the location.


The location of the warehouse should be accessible by roads and highways if trucking is the main transportation mode. Apart from road transportation, if the business ships nationally or internationally then it should have clear access to railway links and ports. Multiple transportation options will be ideal. It provides businesses with the flexibility to intake and distribute goods.

Also, a warehouse location that has good transport links makes it easier for the employees to access the workplace.

Flipkart’s warehouse near Hyderabad is a perfect example. Ideally located on the outskirts of the city, the well-connected warehouse not only makes it easier to sort and deliver products but also uses the local workforce to take care of its staff requirements.

Storage requirements

The size, capacity, and infrastructure facilities available at the warehouse should meet all the specific requirements of the business. It should also take into consideration the immediate future plans of the company. Adequate care should be taken to ensure that the warehouse has the right size to store all the goods properly and safely. Not to forget the other special requirements like cold/warm storage, fire-resistant fittings, extra security, etc.

Another important feature of the storage part is the layout of the warehouse. Ideally, it should fit the type of operation conducted within the warehouse. The layout should allow the workers to easily store and maneuver around the warehouse.

Supply chain logistics

A warehouse location, easily accessible by the business’s supply chain partners helps boost business efficiencies and reduce costs and delivery times. This will also attract more potential partners to the company.

Environmental conditions

Finally, make sure that the warehouse is located in a safe locality. If the warehouse is located in an area prone to natural disasters, it may lead to major disruptions. Choose a place that is safe to operate.

Smart warehousing: A revolution in the making!

Smart warehouses are set to transform the commercial space in India.As quick commerce takes off, the new-age customers, B2B and B2C, realize a fast turnaround time is critical. Logistics companies that are unable to meet these expectations may struggle to stay relevant.

As a result of these changes, the warehousing industry is witnessing the emergence of newer trends and ways for warehouses to operate, including processes like storage, picking, packaging, and shipping.

Here are some smart trends and technology upgrades that are fueling the forward march of the warehousing industry.

Robots and automation

Robots and cobots (collaborative robots) are now playing key roles in smart warehouses. From sorting and packaging to batching and transportation, they offer an enhanced range of services. Global giants like Amazon and DHL have successfully implemented robot-driven warehouses in India too. Apart from increasing the picking speed, robots don’t need breaks and if one malfunctions, it can be replaced without slowing down operations.

Another technology feature that is making the warehouse smarter is wearable technology. Smart technology tools like wearable computers with sensors, smart glasses, and voice headsets operating on voice commands have made it easier for workers to pick the required products without the need to scan labels.

Vertical storage capabilities

More business means the need for more space. But the warehouses located in cities and metros come with high real estate costs. One smart way that is making better ergonomic sense as well is vertical storage. With the help of racks and vertical carousels, smart warehouses are solving this problem.

Maximizing energy usage

With rising energy costs, warehouses have started incorporating newer ideas and technologies to optimize energy use. Smart sustainable solutions like skylights to utilize natural light and roof-top solar panels not only help optimize energy use but also make operations more efficient.

The Internet of Things

The IoT isn’t just the latest trend in smart warehousing. It is a key technology concept that is driving the current warehouse automation trends. Warehouses now are leveraging tools like video analytics to monitor the behavior and flow of workers and machinery within the warehouses. Apart from implementing safety measures in the warehouse, it can be used to measure the flow of people in certain areas of the warehouse at certain times and help in smoothening out processes.

Changing roles

 From a place for storing, warehousingis now being seen as a profit center that has the potential of making the company profitable.

Reduced inventories and increased profits

By tracking inventories in real-time, smart warehousing helps business owners to avoid overstocking products and tracking costs will also become easy. This ensures reduced inventory costs. This will lead to a significant increase in the company’s profits across the stream which includes wholesalers, retailers, distributors, and eCommerce websites.

A big boost to order tracking

Another big benefit of smart warehousing is enhanced order tracking. It enables business owners to pass single-speed instructions to multiple recipients. Thereby allowing warehouse managers complete control over customer information, orders, and inventory. It also results in faster order delivery to the customers.

AI and enhanced labor efficiency

Smart warehousing is the upgraded version of traditional warehousing. While manual work plays a big part in traditional warehousing, which includes tasks like ordering, assigning serial numbers, and checking in and out of the warehouse physically. But these actions are automated in smart warehouses.

AI helps to predict the sales volume and notify the team on the fly if it detects that the stocks are running out. It leads to an increase in productivity, which means an increase in labor efficiency.
