The policies contain hard and fast rules and regulations that define the general conduct of the warehouse operation. Examples of the types of policies that organisations will define are as follows:
organisational specific warehouse management policy and procedures guideline outline
health and safety
human resources management
warehouse maintenance and cleaning
record keeping and reporting
reverse logistics – Return of goods and exit strategy in the event of downscaling or shutting down operations
disposal of obsolete and damaged goods.
The procedures' document defines step by step how the activities in the warehouse should be carried out and clearly defines the processes to be adopted. These can be adopted as ‘best practice’.
The procedures provide visibility of the operations for managers and donors.
However, in creating such procedures, care must be taken to avoid constraining the use of local initiative which might be required to deal with local conditions. Procedures should be considered as streamlining the business processes and providing checks and balances. They provide guidance to warehouse managers and must have some level of flexibility to cater to unique situations. This can be achieved by limiting the level of detail that the procedures document defines, allowing more flexibility and/or by arranging ‘dispensations’ to allow departure from the procedures in order to optimise local performance, especially in emergencies.
The procedures will normally provide the step by step guidance on how to manage each aspect of warehousing and may cover:
receiving and issuing of supplies;
quality control or verification;
storage of goods;
how to control stock movement (stock control);
how to detect and deal with stock losses;
how rejected material will be managed; and
how to deal with unwanted material, obsolete and scrap, disposal.

Leasing Temporary Warehouses/Contracting.
The common practice in emergencies is to lease or rent, not purchase warehouses. In this situation, there is often a shortage of suitable buildings or locations for warehouse space and this can often cause the costs to increase significantly. Therefore, it is often necessary to utilise temporary warehouse space for as short a time a possible.
Care must be taken with the drawing up of the lease agreement (See Warehouse Rental Contract sample) with the owner. The following items are basic inclusions and in a lease agreement:
the cost for the lease;
the duration of the lease agreement;
exit clause: the period of notice required for terminating or extending the lease period. Confirmation of the existence of property insurance, covering third-party, fire, water damage, window breakage, etc;
details of any security arrangements;
a detailed inventory of any equipment, fixtures and fitting included with the building and detailed description of their condition;
confirmation of either sole tenancy or details of other tenants;
information about the ground or floor strength per square metre;
the weight capacity of any equipment such as forklifts, racks and shelves;
in situations where neutrality is important, care must be taken to establish the actual owner of the building, which might be different from the ‘lessor’ of the building e.g. the military, religious groups or government;
