Warehousing and Stripping

Warehousing and strip are two important components in the supply chain and import of the product(s).

  • Arrival of the product(s) to the warehouse: When the products arrive in the warehouse, it should be checked whether the imported products match the order or not. After confirmation, they should be placed in the warehouse properly.


  • Storage stage: After the products enter the country and customs clearance is done for them, they must be stored in different warehouses so that they can be delivered to the customer at the desired time.


  • Information system: Warehousing needs a strong information system so that it can organize the inventory of incoming and outgoing products and the time of delivery to buyers.


  • Warehouse management: Warehouse management methods and processes should be used to store the product(s) efficiently and without wasting time.


  • Quality control: To make sure about the quality of product(s), a quality control process must be carried out, which may include physical examination, quality tests and technical specification approval.


  • Security systems: The security of the warehouse and the stored products should be guaranteed as much as possible. To make this happen, CCTV cameras, fire alarm systems and other security equipment can be used.


  • Optimizing the warehouse space: The warehouse space should be optimized so that the products are placed in an orderly and accessible manner.


  • Storage of products: The conditions of the warehouse should be such that the products are kept in ideal conditions and this includes temperature, humidity and other environmental conditions. Also, the products must be protected against risks such as theft, spoilage or damage.


  • Follow-up and delivery: There must be a follow-up process so that the product(s) can be monitored at different stages of the supply chain. If necessary, the product(s) must be moved to the next destination in the supply chain at the right time and in an orderly manner.


  • Recovery and return: In case of problems or defects, there must be a process to return or open or recover the product(s).


  • Laws and Regulations: The importer must be familiar with the local, provincial and federal laws and regulations related to importation, warehousing and apply them.



Stripping refers to the process of removing the shipping packaging from the products after entering the warehouse. It may include removing protective boxes, cartons or any other packaging. This process is especially important in international trade where the products are usually packed in large containers.

  • Planning and preparation:

Before the strip, careful planning should be done so that the process can be done without problems and errors. In this regard, the location of the required equipment and personnel should be well prepared.

  • Performing the strip:

After the products arrive, the process of separating the products from the containers or the original packaging begins. This process is done carefully and carefully so as not to damage the products.

  • Quality control during stripping:

Quality control must be performed during the strip to ensure that the products were not damaged during transit, and any defects or damage must be reported immediately.

  • Registration and information system:

The information about the products that were stripped must be updated and accurately recorded. Theinformation includes the type of product, quantity, condition and other details related to the product.

  • Safety precautions:

During the strip process, special attention should be paid to the safety of personnel and products.

​Potential challenges

  • Logistical problems: Challenges such as delays in shipping or customs problems can have negative effects on the strip and warehousing process.
  • Fluctuations in demand: Fluctuations in market demand can have a direct impact on inventory and supply chain processes.
