When to Use Short Term Warehousing

Short-term storage typically refers to holding items for less than 90 days. This enables businesses to fulfill peaks in demand for products without incurring commitments or long-term contracts. The best uses of short-term warehousing are:

  • Start Ups
  • Seasonal Changes
  • Special Projects
  • New Product Releases
  • Managing overflow in inventory
  • Preserving early cargo
  • Holding foreign shipments temporarily

There are two main categories of warehousing: short-term and long-term. Anything shorter than three months can be used to define short term warehousing. The majority of the time, items in short-term warehousing are kept in a way that makes them accessible and enables easy removal when the time comes. Here are a few more instances where a business might want short-term storage.

Moving Facilities

If you’re moving your office or place of business, you might need a place to store the furniture, tools, and goods while you’re moving them. This is especially true if you have to relocate while your new place is still being finished up.

Short-term storage is necessary because you won’t need to keep your stuff there for very long. When your new location is prepared, you can easily access your stuff in this manner.

Remember that even while temporarily storing items like electronics, you might still need to make sure that they are in a climate-controlled setting. If you have to keep them somewhere cold or hot during the winter or summer, do this.

Differing Delivery Endpoints

Consider the scenario where you need to import goods that will be distributed among multiple locations. You can save money by having everything transported to one short-term storage place rather than having to have three separate shipments.

Your things can then be divided up and delivered exactly where you need them. This saves you money, enables you to receive everything more quickly, and lowers the likelihood that one of the shipments may be delayed.

Whatever your need, Murphy Logistics is the perfect custom storage partner for your unique business needs. We offer diverse solutions that work for your custom strategy, allowing you to achieve your goals and plan more efficiently for the future.
