  • Public & Contract Warehousing | Bay Logistics

    Public & Contract Warehousing Public & Contract Warehousing Public Warehouse space is available for anyone to store anything. Public warehousing in the 3PL world is like an apartment rented on a month-to-month basis. It works well for short term overflow material or seasonal variations in supply and demand. ​ Contract Warehousing takes away the flexibility of public warehousing, but delivers a guarantee. Whether the space is full or empty, the space you contracted is yours. Bay Logistics will not fill that space with anyone else's product. It will be available to you whenever you need it. ​ Bay Logistics offers both options or a hybrid of the two. Whatever it takes!
