Explanation: Static warehousing

The term refers to a traditional method of warehouse management. Here, stock is stored in a warehouse or storage area without moving or rotating dynamically. Items in static warehouses are often organised according to a fixed system, such as product type, size or weight. This makes it easier for employees to find items when needed. In contrast to dynamic warehousing, static warehousing is suitable for companies in industries with slower sales cycles or for items with lower demand.
