How to Choose the Ontario Warehousing Company that's Right for Your Business
A warehouse is more than a place to store your products — it’s a strategic partner that can streamline your supply chain, improve efficiency, and reduce costs.
It’s important to choose a warehousing company that meets your specific needs and business goals, as well as boasting a track record of reliability, a wide range of services, and flexibility to adapt to a changing market.
When choosing a storage and warehousing company in Ontario, it is important to consider:
Location plays an important role in both transportation costs and transit times. Shortening delivery times and reducing delay is key to customer satisfaction.
- Storage Space
The warehouse should not only be large enough to store your products today, but also to allow your business to expand as it grows, handle unexpected increases in demand, or changes in product lines.
- Material Handling Equipment
Your warehousing partner must have the necessary equipment to handle and store your products safely and efficiently, with loading docks and loading equipment to facilitate the movement of goods in and out of the facility, including forklifts, pallet jacks, and other material handling equipment.
- Safety and Security
Fire suppression and security systems are essential for protecting your products from theft and damage.
- Environmental Controls
The warehouse must have proper controls in place to maintain the right temperature, humidity, and other environmental conditions in order to protect your products.
- Industry Knowledge
Having experience working with companies in your industry helps to ensure your Ontario warehousing services partner understands your specific needs.
- Adequate Parking and Loading Facilities
Properly designed and maintained parking and loading areas ensure the safe and efficient movement of goods and vehicles both in and out of the warehouse. This helps to minimize delays and reduce the risk of damage to goods and equipment.
- WMS Software
Today, all warehousing and storage facilities should be equipped with a warehouse management system (WMS) that integrates with your EDI provider (such as CommerceHub, SPS Commerce) for accurate inventory management.
Choosing a supplier that aligns with your business goals and meets your specific needs will streamline your supply chain, boost efficiency, and reduce costs.

How Much Does Warehousing and Storage Cost in Ontario?
The cost of warehousing and storage services in Ontario depends on many factors, including the size of the warehouse space required, the type of storage required, the location of the warehouse, the duration of storage, and more.
Without knowing more about your specific requirements, it is difficult to provide a rough estimate for what warehouse storage in Ontario will cost you. Different warehousing providers also offer different pricing structures.
The following factors usually play some role in determining the cost of warehousing and storage in Ontario:
- Space Required
The cost of warehouse storage is often based on the amount of space you need to store your products. The larger the space, the higher the cost.
- Duration of Storage
The cost of warehouse storage can also depend on the duration of storage. Long-term storage contracts tend to be more cost-effective than short-term contracts.
- Type of Storage
Different types of storage require different levels of security, climate control, and other special features. Some products may require special handling, such as refrigeration, or hazardous materials storage. These factors can all affect the cost of commercial warehousing in Ontario.
Warehouses located in more densely populated areas or closer to major transportation routes tend to be more expensive than those located in more remote areas (one of the ways our 3PL warehouse 2 hours outside Toronto provides cost efficiencies.)
- Level of Security
Adding security measures such as surveillance, fire suppression, and access control can increase costs.
- Level of Service
Packaging, assembly, and shipping are additional services offered by some warehouses, and all factor into the total cost of 3PL warehousing services.
