Warehouse Transport

Warehouse transport is a popular form of transportation required frequently. Loading at a warehouse to deliver to various destinations can involve raw materials or finished products. Warehouse shipping can be from one warehouse to another, from a warehouse to a store, or even warehouse to home in some instances.

Warehouse Transport Requirements

For warehouse shipping, there needs to be communication between the warehouse team and the shippers, and also with the transportation company to coordinate the pick-up of the product. The items must be packaged appropriately for shipping, in some cases on pallets that have been wrapped to keep them grouped together and counted before pick up. The count will be confirmed upon pick up and loading, and then it is delivered to either the depot for sorting and loading onto less than full loads or delivered to the required location for a full load.
When unloading at a warehouse, there will be a quick count to ensure the same amount loaded is being unloaded to reduce lost product loss, and it will be unloaded at the required location or warehouse.

Scheduling Considerations

An essential part of warehouse shipping is ensuring that trucks are arriving and leaving on time and that there is staff ready and available to load and unload the trucks.
There will be several shipments each day in many locations. It must be well scheduled and timed to keep everything on time and see the best results for the business. It is necessary for all drivers to maintain on-time the best they are able and to show up for full and partial loads when required to keep the products moving in and out of the warehouse.

Full Load or Less Than Full Load

When shipping from or to a warehouse, it is possible to ship either full or less than full loads. When there are smaller shipments that need to go to more than one location, it may be possible to ship them as a full load sorted and separated at a distribution center as needed and then shipped from there with other partial loads to its final destination.

Necessary Preparations

For warehouse shipping to be possible, there must be a loading dock or a shipping and receiving area. This will have an area for the trucks to back up, and the floor of the truck should be even or close to the floor to allow full pallets to be loaded onto or off of the truck. Where needed, a forklift or pallet jack should be used for speed and safety. All safety measures must be followed when doing warehouse transport. There are higher safety risks where large amounts of products are being moved at once, as well as in any location, there are multiple trucks throughout the day.
Warehouse transport has its own set of needs and procedures that must be followed, and having a shipping and transport company that is familiar with these needs makes the process easier than it would otherwise be and can keep the products flowing through the business and the warehouse in a way that maintains profit and keep products from backing up in warehouses and storage facilities.
