With the development of China's industry and economy, the modernization requirements of the warehousing industry are also rising.

Traditional warehousing refers to the storage and safekeeping of materials through warehouses, while modern warehousing refers to warehousing established in modern logistics systems in the context of economic globalization and supply chain integration. Warehousing is one of the important links in the process of commodity circulation, and it is also an important pillar of the development of logistics market.

From a worldwide perspective, logistics warehousing is mainly divided into five stages: manual warehousing, mechanized warehousing, automated warehousing, integrated automated warehousing, and intelligent automated warehousing. At this stage, China's warehousing development is in the stage of automation and integrated automation, with the development of information technology, the future will be combined with the industrial Internet technology to intelligent upgrade.

With the development of China's industry and economy, the modernization requirements of the warehousing industry are also rising. On the whole, my country's warehousing market has sufficient demand, industry orders and facility utilization rates are in good condition, and the total business volume has maintained a steady and rising development trend.The profit model of the warehousing industry is based on warehousing leasing services, supplemented by value-added services, which mainly includes three parts: first, storage and simple processing business, which is the main source of profit for the warehousing industry; second, value-added services such as supporting loading and unloading and distribution; and third, financial leasing services. The business volume of my country's warehousing industry has grown steadily, and corporate revenue has improved significantly, but costs and expenditures continue to increase, and the industry's profit margins have been significantly squeezed. Reducing costs and increasing efficiency is still a problem for the development of the warehousing industry.

At this stage, China's storage area is about10About 100 million square meters, has been able to meet the basic needs of the logistics market, but the geographical distribution of storage facilities in China is relatively uneven, mainly concentrated in the more economically developed areas. In addition, the structure of China's storage facilities is also relatively unreasonable, with traditional storage accounting for a relatively large proportion and modern storage accounting for a relatively low proportion. With the increasing diversification of the types of goods purchased by consumers, the traditional single warehousing service has been unable to meet the increasingly complex needs of the logistics market, and the structure of China's warehousing facilities needs to be adjusted and upgraded.

Warehousing is one of the important sub-industries in the logistics industry. my country's e-commerce market is booming, and the prosperity of the logistics industry has been at a high level. The stable operation of my country's warehousing industry will continue. However, in China's warehousing industry, traditional warehousing facilities occupy a large share, and a single service mode can no longer meet the increasingly diversified market demand for storage commodities. the deep integration and optimization of warehousing resources, the establishment of modern warehousing facilities and the expansion of industry profitability are the focus of the future development of the warehousing industry.
