"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]

"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. Stored goods can include any raw materials, packing materials, spare parts, components, or finished goods associated with agriculture, manufacturing and production." [Warehouse. Wikipedia]

"A commercial building is a building that is used for commercial use. Types can include office buildings, warehouses, or retail (i.e. convenience stores, 'big box' stores, shopping malls, etc.). In urban locations, a commercial building often combines functions, such as an office on levels 2-10, with retail on floor 1. Local authorities commonly maintain strict regulations on commercial zoning, and have the authority to designate any zoned area as such. A business must be located in a commercial area or area zoned at least partially for commerce." [Commercial building. Wikipedia]
