Buy or set up a warehouse

Warehouse is one of the most crucial assets of a logistics company. Companies need to assess the needs of their current and future operations, before they consider to buy or build a warehouse.

Each warehouse is different and presents its own set of challenges and limitations. Companies would also often set up warehouses in multiple regions to facilitate international transport. Regional countries such as China, Indonesia and Thailand are attractive locations to set up warehouses.

For logistics companies operating in more than one country, there are local factors that these companies must consider. These include the costs of construction of a warehouse at specific locations, valuation of existing warehouses, and alignment of the company’s current and future operations. Managers must weigh the costs versus benefits and take their specific business requirements into consideration when deciding to build or buy a warehouse.
