Design elements - Storage and distribution

The vector stencils library "Storage and distribution" contains 24 symbols of storage and distribution industrial equipment.
Use the design elements library "Storage and distribution" to draw industrial warehouse plans and storage and distribution equipment layouts using the ConceptDraw PRO diagramming and vector drawing software.
"A warehouse is a commercial building for storage of goods. Warehouses are used by manufacturers, importers, exporters, wholesalers, transport businesses, customs, etc. They are usually large plain buildings in industrial areas of cities and towns and villages. They usually have loading docks to load and unload goods from trucks. Sometimes warehouses are designed for the loading and unloading of goods directly from railways, airports, or seaports. They often have cranes and forklifts for moving goods, which are usually placed on ISO standard pallets loaded into pallet racks.
Some of the most common warehouse storage systems are:
Pallet racking including selective, drive-in, drive-thru, double-deep, pushback, and gravity flow;
Mezzanine including structural, roll formed, racks;
Vertical Lift Modules;
Horizontal Carousels;
Vertical Carousels." [Warehouse. Wikipedia]

"Preventing Theft from Warehouses.
The biggest threat to warehouses is collusion between two dishonest people - one inside the warehouse who is employed by you, and another person outside. Your warehouse is vulnerable in different ways at each step of the handling of merchandise. Below, we've broken this process down into three major steps: receiving, storage, and shipping." [crimeprevention.rutgers.edu/crime/emp_theft/warehouses/warehouses.htm]
"Storage.
The trucks have been unloaded and everything put away on the shelves in the warehouse. Now your merchandise is even more vulnerable to thieves than before.
There are two main elements of a good security plan:
1) Keep people out of areas where they don't belong...
2) Keep track of what goods are supposed to be in your warehouse" [crimeprevention.rutgers.edu/crime/emp_theft/warehouses/storage/storage.htm]

The example "Factory layout floor plan" shows manufacturing machines and equipment in the plant warehouse.
"A factory (previously manufactory) or manufacturing plant is an industrial site, usually consisting of buildings and machinery, or more commonly a complex having several buildings, where workers manufacture goods or operate machines processing one product into another.
Most modern factories have large warehouses or warehouse-like facilities that contain heavy equipment used for assembly line production. Large factories tend to be located with access to multiple modes of transportation, with some having rail, highway and water loading and unloading facilities." [Factory. Wikipedia]
