Private warehouse is a company-owned warehouse. Large retail and online marketplaces, for example, have their own privately-owned warehouses.

Although generally more expensive than a public warehouse, private warehouse can still be a great option for eCommerce companies if they need a major, long-term strategic presence in an important region.

How Much Time is Needed to Build a Private Warehouse?

Short answer – it depends. Globally speaking the time needed to build a warehouse has declined in the past 10 years. However, there are still big differences, even between countries in developed economies. For example, one of the best performing countries according to the World Bank in terms of time required are Singapore (41 days in 2018) and United Arab Emirates (50.5 days in 2018). At the same time in United Kingdom you can become a warehouse owner in 86 days. Compare that to 183 days in France or 126 days in Germany.
