In a factory environment, you need to have a warehouse to store everything you’ve produced until it is picked up by the customer or it is taken to another warehouse. Where I work, we have a warehouse which is capable of storing a limited amount of product. There are shunt wagons going from our factory to a massive warehouse on the other side of town and back again. Everything we produce is put onto this wagon and shipped to that warehouse, where at a later time it will be picked, put on another wagon and shipped out to where-ever it is going eg Asda, Tesco.
