Very many organizations in the process of their activities are connected with transportation logistic and with warehouse management because the goods need to be moved, kept, guard, etc. All this together can create big problems, especially for a company which is not involved in logistic itself.
The problem appears both at the stage of making decision about purchasing a warehouse (purchasing, building, renting), and during all the period of organization and maintaining corresponding working process at the warehouse.
Safekeeping - is a modern logistic service, which is able to solve these problems. Warehouse of safekeeping does not require investments (neither into building, nor into equipment); does not require constant controlling of work; does not require presence of the employees from the company-client at the warehouse. Warehouse logistic suits all the companies without exceptions, both the companies that have been long time in the market, and the ones that just started their activities and optimize their business processes. This service provides a possibility to take away a warehouse burden from the managers' shoulders and deal with business only, not drowning in a big number of small problems which always accompany any warehouse activities. The company will not have to choose, invest into production development or warehouse, which already became a bottleneck and delays all the work.

In spite of the fact that this logistic service in our company is mostly used for storing cargo, which will be later transported to another city or to be sold by the customer, individuals can use this service for individual keeping of their things. These could be items of furniture (tables, cabinets, chairs, etc), office machinery and documents, winter and summer clothes, sports equipment, children's clothes. However, there are things that we do not take for safekeeping. These are live beings, animals, any kinds of plants, weapons (as well as their parts and ammunition), highly hazardous objects (having dangerous properties), objects that consist or contain dangerous substances (explosive, flammable, radioactive, or toxic substances or gases), things that emit vapors or strong smells, perishable goods (foodstuffs).
Thus, the main differences of safekeeping from the rent lies in the following:
- When you rent a facility, you have to pay for all the rented area regardless of the percentage of its using, whereas at safekeeping you pay for storing of the cargo against the fact of its storing. For instance, if there is nothing in your warehouse, you do not have to pay anything, but you always know that you have a warehouse to rely on at all times.
- The rented facility is physically limited by its walls, floor, and the ceiling, that is why if your volumes exceed the volume of the storing facility, you will need an additional one. At safekeeping, as a rule, there is a possibility to extend with no problem.
- Besides the rent, the facility also needs to be equipped, loading machinery needs to be purchased, repairs: All these items are not needed when you choose safekeeping.
- In the process of work with the warehouse, a necessity in some additional services might arise (e.g. stretch wrapping of the pallets), which can be easily done by a safekeeping warehouse, but if it is your own warehouse, it either will not be able to solve it at all or it could be too expensive or could take too long.
These are very substantial reasons to give your goods flows to be managed by such a professional company as "Delivery" and save on the rent and maintaining your own warehouse, many specialists and operating personnel.
In conclusion, we would like to add that safekeeping warehouses with all their distinct advantages, are not almighty, not comprehensive and not free. There are just a few universal warehouses and their absolute versatility has not been proved by scientists yet.)) However, safekeeping warehouses constantly prove that there are no problems without solutions.
