A warehouse consolidates products from multiple sourcing locations, provides cross-docking facilities to retail distributors, acts as a sorting center for customer deliveries, and an assembly facility for final packaging and bundling of products. Modern warehouses in India provides value-added services such as consolidation and breaking up of cargo, packaging, labelling, barcoding and reverse logistics along with storing facilities. The different types of warehouses are: fulfilment centres, distribution centres, return centres and showrooms.
Based on the type of infrastructure, the Indian warehousing market is categorized into three types, namely lower stratum, middle stratum and higher stratum.
Technological advancements such as the use of Internet of things (IoT), cloud computing, big data analytics, robotics and automation, advanced imagers, and mobile thermal printers are revamping the warehousing market scenario in India. Several government initiatives such as the ‘Make in India’ program and efforts to set up industrial corridors have attracted significant international players to the warehousing market. Implementation of the goods and services tax (GST) had a positive effect on the Indian warehousing market due to diminishing state boundaries. Removal of interstate checkpoints, reduction in cargo movement time and replacement of multiple state and central level taxes are facilitating the consolidation of warehouses.
