Frequently asked questions
What is a freight warehouse?
A freight warehouse is used as a container garage, housing containers and goods until they are ready to be moved to their next location. Whilst being housed in a freight warehouse, the containers are under the supervision of the freight forwarder. Devanning, also known as de-stuffing, is the process of unloading pallets and goods from a container. This often takes place in warehouses before dispatching the goods to their final destination.
How big of a warehouse do I need?
Each warehousing company is different but there are a few ways you can calculate how much space you will need. The first thing to do is to check how big your pallets are and how many you will be storing. You’ll then need to consider how many of your pallets can be stacked and how much space you’ll want to take up in the warehouse.
By looking at all these specifics you can determine how big of a warehouse you need. Forest Freight offers 110k square feet of space across two warehousing facilities in London, accommodating any warehouse floorspace you need.
What are the warehousing delivery charges?
Warehouse delivery charges are based on many different factors including how much you are transporting and where to. Charges also depend on what services you require. For example, your charges can include the cost of warehouse activities such as labelling, assembling and packaging goods before they are shipped out.
We can accommodate all services with our six loading bays, 24-hour service and same-day redistribution of warehouse space. Find your warehousing solutions with Forest Freight for the best deal on delivery charges.
