An essential part of the logistics chain is storage and transshipment.
As the name suggests, storage refers to storing goods, which is typically done in a warehouse.
Transshipment involves transferring goods from one mode of transportation to another. This could include loading a container from a ship onto a truck, or moving packages from a truck at a depot onto smaller vans that will deliver them to homes.
Transshipment generally occurs at terminals, depots, ports, airports, or train stations.
Sometimes, goods are consolidated onto pallets or containers. Other times, they are distributed from a container or pallet.
