    Warehouse classification, according to EU standards

    According to European Union standards, warehouses are divided into four classes. The warehouse classification considers the accessibility of the warehouse, its location, functionality, and equipment with technological devices and various communication or security systems, which enhance the logistics possibilities offered by warehouse services. Warehouse classifications are denoted by the first letters of the Latin alphabet: A, B, C, and D, which facilitate decision-making for appropriate goods and cargo storage.

    • Class A warehouse – located near major highways and equipped with the highest quality technological and security standards. The ceiling height is > 10 m;
    • Class B warehouse – spacious and adapted for vehicle manoeuvres with a parking lot. The warehouse is equipped with modern technologies. The ceiling height is up to 8 m;
    • Class C warehouse – set up in an industrial area and adapted according to warehouse standards, with the possibility of indoor cargo loading/unloading. The ceiling height is from 4 m;
    • Class D warehouse – suitable for placing goods and cargo without the possibility of providing specific storage conditions for the cargo. It can be set up in a basement or production premises.

    How do you choose the right warehouse?

    The correct choice of a warehouse for placing goods and various items is directly related to ensuring the efficiency of a company’s operations and fulfilling significant financial investment tasks.

Also, the zoning of warehouse premises and convenient vehicle manoeuvring possibilities should be considered.

    Types of warehouses based on functionality

    Depending on the purpose for which the warehouse is used, they can be divided in various ways based on construction (for example, open, closed, or partially closed warehouses), type of storage (for example, dry, heated, insulated warehouses), and degree of automation (for example, automated, mechanized, non-mechanized warehouses).

    • General warehouses – Provide storage of goods and cargo, performing, if necessary, the processing of goods and cargo.
    • Specialized warehouses – Special warehouses, for example, for temporary storage of materials or placement of returnable waste.

    • Customs warehouses – Temporarily store cargo or goods in the customs zone (for example, imported or transit goods).
    • Excise goods warehouses – Operate with a permit issued by the customs unit and provide storage of excise goods (for example, tobacco or alcohol).
    • Automated warehouses – Management uses computers (placement and search) with little or no human resource participation.
    • ADR warehouses – Storage of dangerous goods (ADR) and their classes.
    • Central warehouses – Adapted to economic activities, a warehouse complex.
