Storage for mail order business & e-commerce
Being a founder has its advantages and disadvantages. Starting your own business requires not only a lot from a young entrepreneur, but also a certain willingness to take risks. Nevertheless, more and more inventors are venturing into the topic of independence and expressing their ideas. But starting a company takes time. At the beginning there is always an idea that does not develop overnight into a giant, like the mail order company Amazon or the social network Facebook.
Many start-ups are based on product ideas. This raises the question of distribution. Directly or indirectly through intermediaries? Online or in classic shops? The trend towards direct sales via the company's own online shop can undoubtedly be observed. Online retail is booming and has become one of the most important sales channels.
As soon as the decision for online sales has been made, the next challenge will arise, the process flow. How do I send my items? Where do I pack and store the goods? How much should be produced initially? Questions that are not always easy to solve, as some founders do not have their own premises right from the start, but often organize everything from home. But converting the living room or home office into a shipping warehouse is not exactly the master plan.
Selfstorage for e-commerce
For cost reasons, an external storage and packaging facility is not possible at the beginning but using one's private premises for the startup is also not an option. Before a large, own warehouse logistics system is purchased, a selfstorage storage compartment can be very helpful. You rent an external, inexpensive storage compartment, at best in the vicinity, and only pay for the size that is needed. It also helps to separate work and private life. Decentralized warehouses, i.e. several compartments at different locations, also help to shorten delivery times due to shorter transport routes.
Storebox – your storage next door
Storebox is a startup from Vienna and rents selfstorage storage compartments in Austria and Germany. The difference between Storebox and other self-storage providers is, that the warehouses are not located on the outskirts of the city, but in central, easily accessible locations in the city centre. You also have 24/7 access to your storage compartment at Storebox. So, you can access your goods around the clock and are not bound to opening hours. The entire booking process is digitalized and runs online. No signing of contracts, no viewing appointments, no handing over of keys - more time for your startup.
Your storage compartment is video monitored and insured. Smart sensors in all locations measure humidity and temperature, which you can track in real time with your smartphone, to ensure optimal storage conditions. Additional features such as heavy duty shelving and environmentally friendly storage boxes are also available to keep your shipping warehouse tidy.
