In today’s fast growing small business sector, many people are starting their up their own companies. E-commerce makes it as simple as a few clicks of a mouse to get started. There are a wealth of online applications and tools to help you launch your very own business, all from the comfort of your home.
Today, it’s easy for you to manage almost every aspect of your business from home, even if you live in a tiny apartment. You can sell product, arrange for shipping, and even do your own books. But there’s one aspect of owning your own business that you may not have thought of…
Where Will You Store Your Inventory?
Depending on the type of business you want to run, you’ll probably need some type of warehouse to store your merchandise in. While some business owners might prefer to use ‘drop shipping’ (drop shipping is when your products are sent directly from the manufacturer to the buyer without using the regular distribution channels), most business owners prefer to keep an inventory of products on hand. Having your own inventory will give you more control over your business. You’ll know when stock is running low; when there’s a surplus; and you’ll be able to keep a physical eye on the quality of the goods you’re selling.
So where do you keep this inventory? Most business owners start out small. They might start the company from home, or perhaps a small store front office in a local business park. In startup mode, the business owner may not have the financial cushion to be able to afford a large space with a warehouse. Or it may simply be that there are no facilities available within a suitable distance of the business. This leads to the question - what solutions are available?
