Cargo storage and warehousing are integral components of rail logistics. They serve as buffer zones, accommodating supply chain fluctuations and enabling efficient inventory management. These facilities facilitate the consolidation and deconsolidation of cargo, streamline cross-docking operations, and offer value-added services. They also play a role in last-mile delivery preparation.
By incorporating cargo storage and warehousing, rail logistics optimizes inventory control, enhances efficiency, and ensures the smooth flow of goods throughout the supply chain.
