Benefits of franchising as a business model
There are many benefits that I can see from a franchise. Many self storage facilities for instance have their own franchise to be let out by downlines. The upper management can render assistance in the form of mentoring, training and so on to the new franchise owners to keep the legacy of the business going at a much faster rate.

Export orders, container shipping on the rise
The storage container industry relies greatly on the demand for export orders. Both of them work cohesively together requiring each other's services during fluctuations in the market. We can see visible changes on either one affecting one another in a chain pattern and somehow that is how industry players often figure out what to expect next.

The Mobile Soup Kitchen needs an ice-cream truck
Mobile food trucks have been using storage containers and I think it is a good choice as they are mobile and provide ample space. Space, as we are aware of, is crucial for a kitchen. There is a need to prepare proper storage for food items, utensils, as well as a good stove and preparation area.

How under-investing in warehouse lighting could lead to reputational, financial disaster
Ok, honestly, the point here is that you want to make sure that you're reading the labels on all of that stuff in storage right? It might not be a matter of lighting, but a matter of labelling isn't it? I'm sure that whoever is heading into the warehouse to retrieve items can carry a good light or torch if the lighting is insufficient...

Finding solutions to disrupted Wi-Fi in the warehouse
I think it really depends on what type of self storage facility you have there. Honestly speaking, if you are just storing big items into long term storage, your guys are going to be in and out of the warehouse in no time and you don't really need for them to have much connectivity while they're walking inside the storage warehouse at all.

There is a need for increased storage space to ensure the imported goods get proper storage. Even in Ulladulla, storage warehouses are popular amongst import and export businesses where inventory sales is their core business. This is a similar business move that is necessary to be facilitated to ensure consumer demand is met on a timely fashion.

#BizTrends2017: Is it time for a new (business) reality? Key tech predictions for 2017
The tech sector truly moves too fast for people to keep up these days. It's hard enough trying to follow up with some of the existing stuff before a newer version comes along and you're being forced to upgrade to it! Running my self storage business is a great example of this - we have to constantly ensure that we are up to date in our security and surveillance to ensure our customers feel comfortable and secure putting their things in storage with us!

China's Alibaba to set up logistics hub in Malaysia
Building a logistics hub for storage and operational purposes in a country that is popular with its shipping environment is a good movement for the business. It can act as a central location to liaise with business acitivites from both sides, making order fulfillment a much smoother process. The location of the new logistics hub must have been well thought through since the location would be permanent for at least the next few years to come. This is a huge move for the company to come into collaboration with the country where their business expansion will be situated at.

19.1 km of shelving for new goods distribution centre
That is a massive storage facility indeed with properly organized racking system to help the distribution centre operate with a great level of ease. Being organized would help ensure business operations can be carried out effortlessly and with much lesser chances of making mistakes. This is important especially in terms of fulfilling customers' orders on a daily basis. Human intervention would still be necessary but on a much lesser scale to alleviate human error.

Import/export container market to contract by 5%
I don't see many shipping storage containers in Geelong, but I'm pretty sure that there are a lot of them moving around with their cargo in the more industrial suburbs near here. It's hard to gauge the economy of logistics in this way, but with the economy picking up, I'm sure there's a lot more movement of the storage containers elsewhere in the world...
