What is a Shared Warehouse?

A shared warehouse is a type of warehouse that is rented or leased out to multiple companies that need to store their products. This type of warehouse is beneficial for businesses that don’t need to own a warehouse, or can’t afford to own one, because it allows them to save money on the cost of rent and maintenance.  


Shared warehouses are often managed by a third-party provider who takes care of the day-to-day operations such as inventory management, picking and packing, and shipping. The companies that use the warehouse can access the space as needed, giving them the flexibility to increase or decrease their storage needs as needed.
