Specialists for warehouse logistics accept goods in logistics centers, industrial plants, shipping agencies, and in all types of mail order businesses (including hazardous materials) and check the accompanying papers for the amount and condition of the goods. They organize the unloading, sort the goods, and store them appropriately in predetermined spots. In the shipping area, you plan the deliveries and determine the cheapest method of shipping. You prepare the deliveries, pack the goods, and prepare the accompanying papers, such as delivery slips or customs declarations. You load trucks, containers, or railcars, use the necessary aids such as forklifts, and secure the freight to prevent slipping or leaks.
