Running a business is difficult, even more difficult is the scaling of that business when success comes to you. Many businesses fail but for those that do succeed, new problems crop up! While no one will feel sorry for you for having “good” problems, that doesn’t provide solutions. Thankfully, we deal in solutions, and one of those solutions that we provide relief for is warehousing, storage, and hauling!
What is Logistics and Why is it a Headache?
Logistics is a complex and inescapable part of running an operation. It’s also one of the first areas that confound business owners when they have to scale their business up. Suddenly, the need for a much larger space, more employees, and a workflow that can satisfy both demand and deadlines becomes quickly urgent.
Space is perhaps the biggest issue. Our last blog post briefly glanced over what any California citizen knows—the Bay Area is wildly expensive. Real estate costs are absurdly high due to the appeal of living here a well as a host of other factors. What does this mean? The need for a larger warehouse or storage facility may not scale equally with how much it costs to obtain it. Will your profits from scaling up cover the cost of the larger storage? Not always, not in most cases. Such is the difficult life of the business owner.
