Why a temporary warehousing solution ?

Renting a warehouse can be very expensive, especially if the warehouse is only used a few months in the year. By outsourcing its freight, raw materials or finished products, that is to say by choosing to store with an external service provider, various advantages appear: the storage location is rented per m2, on the dates chosen and various options are generally available; like international shipping, local transport, handling, inventory management, etc.
