Why you should view warehousing as real estate
from By Ken Ackerman
It is not surprising that real estate and warehousing go together like ham and eggs. Yet, despite its intimate relationship to warehousing, real estate is frequently misunderstood. Of the tools used in warehousing, often the most expensive and least flexible one is the building that houses the operation. If and when this real estate becomes obsolete, it may be the most difficult tool to dispose of. If the wrong tool is purchased, correcting the error may be slow and expensive. Unlike lift trucks, computers and people, real estate cannot be moved from one place to another.
