Explanation: Dynamic warehousing

The term "dynamic warehousing" refers to a warehousing strategy in which (warehouse) stocks are adjusted in real time in response to various factors. These include, for example, changes in demand or the availability of suppliers. Its objective is to optimise stock levels. Sufficient stock should be available to meet demand - while at the same time minimising storage costs and the risk of excess stock.

Features of dynamic warehousing include real-time monitoring of stock levels and demand, flexible inventory management, the use of data analyses and forecasting methods and the integration of supplier information. In contrast to static warehousing, where stocks are managed on the basis of forecasts and fixed guidelines, dynamic warehousing reacts flexibly to changes in the market.
