PREFACE
Because of globalization trend of economy, Viet Nam has had significant improvement
to integrate into general development of world economy. Trading and commercial
activities among states is more and more developing, this leads to high demand of
cargo transportation, therein port plays an important role. Ports are considered as
“connecting bridge” motivating economic exchange. Especially, since Viet Nam
implemented reform policies, port system in Viet Nam has expanded and upgraded to
satisfy demands of domestic and abroad cargo transportation.
The economic development of the country and around the world requires the exchange
of trade and commerce between countries and regions. Therefore, export and import
operations are increasingly improved leading to the speed of cargo throughput also
increases. However, cargo cannot always be adapted to go straight all the time.
Consequently, the appearance of storage services to store merchandise is really
necessary. That set off for now the question as: how is warehouse operation and how to
improve warehouse operations. These questions will be addressed according to the
specific characteristics of the business, from which each business sets the direction and
development goals are different. To do this, the company provides warehousing
services need to measure innovation, enhancements to improve warehouse operations.
Therefore, I chose the topic “Suggestions to improve warehouse operations in
Quang Ninh Port Joint Stock Company”.
I choose this topic because recently Vietnam is increasingly becoming a country, which
import a great volume of bulk cargoes like agricultural products and fertilizers, which
need to be stored if it cannot go straight. Therefore, warehouse operation activities play
an indispensable role in the efficiency of port operation. In this report, I will describe
the whole results of this study trip, reality that I see and some information as well as
some solutions I recommend to deal with some problems of warehouse operation in
Quang Ninh Port Joint Stock Company.

INTRODUCTION
1. Necessity
Vietnam is a developing country with high development speed. International economy
and finance organizations offered evaluation and positive forecast about economic
development of country in near future. Along with the economy development and
integration is the increase of logistics business sector. Logistics is a new field in
Vietnam in recent years, especially in the period of opened market, while import and
export activities is pushing up, logistics activities play a pivotal role creating suitable
conditions for Vietnam’s enterprises joining in international market. The development
of logistics services ensure produced operation, ensuring the time and the quality of
other business services. Logistics develop considerably would bring the ability of
reduce cost, improve the quality of products. This is an action meaning as a chain, the
efficiency of this activity plays an important role for the competition of industry and
commerce of each country. Therefore, with the extremely important position in the
whole chain of logistics services, warehousing are contributing in huge part to revenues
and profits as well as the development of logistics. Without warehouses, logistic
activities cannot take place effectively. It not only plays an important role for the
business but also plays a pivotal role for partner, organizations, national economy by
saving the cost of production, preservation and storage, transport costs. In other words,
warehouses contribute to increase the value of goods, increase service quality, meeting
customer needs. However, reality shows that this activity in our country is relatively
backward and inefficient. Thus, how to improve warehouse operations, the matter that
both business providing services and clients concerned. In order to better understand
the situation of warehouse activities of businesses providing storage services, I want to
mention directly to a particular company, such as Quang Ninh Joint Stock Company.
2. Research Purposes
First and foremost, this dissertation contributes to supplement the logistics knowledge
in general and specific warehouse operation insight in particular. Based on the
relationship with logistics system in logistics enterprises, this dissertation would like to
provide the specific theories of warehouse operation. Along with this, theoretical
knowledge will be applied in to real situations in order to solve troubles. This

CHAPTER 1: LITERATURE OVERVIEW
1.1. General information of warehouse
1.1.1. The definition of warehouse and warehouse operation
A warehouse is a commercial building for storage of goods. Warehouses are usually
large plain buildings locating in industrial areas of cities, towns and villages and used
by manufacturers, importers, exporters, wholesalers, transport businesses, customs, etc.
They usually have loading docks to load and unload goods from trucks. Sometimes
warehouses are also designed for the loading and discharging of goods directly from
railways, seaports or airports. They often use equipment like cranes and forklifts for
moving goods, which are usually placed on ISO standard pallets loaded into pallet
racks. Stored goods can include any raw materials, packing materials, spare parts,
components, or finished goods associated with agriculture, manufacturing and
production. ( PhD. Nguyen Van Son & Master. Le Thi Nguyen)
A warehouse provides a central location for receiving, storing and distributing
products. When each import or export shipment arrives, responsibility for the goods
which is transferred to warehouse, cargoes are identified, sorted and dispatched to their
temporary storage location. Storage isn’t a static “thing” but rather a process that
includes measures of security and maintaining a preservation environment that ensures
the integrity and usefulness of the categories. When each item should be select and
move, each order is retrieved, grouped, packaged and checked for completeness before
being dispatched to their new destination. ( PhD. Nguyen Van Son & Master. Le Thi Nguyen)
In the other word, “warehousing” is the storage of goods until they are needed to
dispatch to customers. The purpose of warehouse operations is to satisfy the customers’
needs and requirements while using facilities, equipment and labor effectively. The
goods must be preserved and protected to ensure the quantity as well as quality of
cargoes. In order to meet this goal, company requires creating constant planning and
ongoing change. An effective warehouse operation must include all the equipment
which is needed for providing timely and accuracy shipping, receiving and perpetual
inventory control. (Swift technologies – Warehouse operation)

Warehouse operations and activity fall into the following activities:
- Goods in or receiving: assessing when goods will actually be arriving and taking
action to scheduled receipts can help to improve the workload scheduling.
- Put away into the storage area: space utilization can be negatively impacted as
space is available and the location is determined by predetermined algorithms.
- Order selection and picking/ packing: picking is often a large cause of customer
complaints due to wrong products being picked and dispatched to customers. A
1% pick error may however easily equate to a 20% or more increase in cost due
to having to make returns, replacements, as these all need more physical
movement and extra time to correct the mistake.
- Goods outward or despatch: dispatching is a reflection of the goods receipt/
receiving area including establish the correct loading area, ensure that it is safe
and suitable for the operation; ensure that the vehicle is safe before loading;
obtain the driver’s signature.
1.1.2. Justification for selection of warehouse capacity
- If selecting warehouse capacity according to cargo volume, it means that warehouse
capacity (WC) is equal cargo volumes (CV), this will cause cargo congestion in
warehouse in the period of maximum cargo coming to the port. This was overcome by
setting up a temporary warehouse. Otherwise handling equipment must stop. ( PhD.
Nguyen Van Son & Master. Le Thi Nguyen)
- If selecting warehouse capacity according to cargo throughput of port, it means that
warehouse capacity is equal cargo volume through the wharf (CW), leading to waste
due to much excess empty capacity of the warehouse in these days when not much
cargo through the port. ( PhD. Nguyen Van Son & Master. Le Thi Nguyen)
Stemming from these arguments we should choose warehouse capacity in the
calculation of the limit: CV ≤ WC ≤ CW ( PhD. Nguyen Van Son & Master. Le Thi Nguyen)
1.1.3. Warehouse classification
1.1.3.1. Warehouse classification based on ownership
Private warehouses are constructed and owned by the business enterprises in order to
store the products produced by them. These are exclusively owned and used by the
Vu Thi Luong – GMA 02
Page 4
Recommendations to improve warehouse operations in Quang Ninh Port Joint Stock Company
producers themselves and are not meant for other manufacturing or business units.
(Kyle Lau, 2011)
Public warehouses are open for public at large. Most of the business organizations,
especially small and medium scale, can’t afford to have their own warehouses on
account of large financial investment in their construction and maintenance. Public
warehouses are very useful to businessmen. These warehouses are usually situated near
railway lines or main roads, so as to provide quick transportation services. (Kyle Lau,
2011)
Bonded warehouses are used for imported goods which are not granted clearance on
account of non-payment of custom duty by the importer of these goods. Such
warehouses are situated near the ports. Goods can’t be removed from these warehouses
until the custom duties are paid. Bonded warehouses may be run by the government or
private agencies (when granted licenses to operate such warehouses). In both the cases
there is a strict control and supervision imposed by custom authorities on their
operation and functioning. (Kyle Lau, 2011)
A contract warehouse, as a third type of warehouse ownership classification, has the
attributes of both private and public warehouses. A contract warehouse can also be
understood as a customized extension of a public warehouse, which is a long-term
business arrangement to provide specific and customized logistic services to the
customers. (Kyle Lau, 2011)
1.1.3.2. Warehouse classification based on items
Special commodity warehouses: these warehouses are constituted for storing a
particular type of commodity, e.g., tobacco, cotton, wheat etc. Nature of commodity is
important in selecting the type of warehouse. For storing petrol, storage tanks are
needed and for storing agricultural products, warehouses are needed. ( PhD. Nguyen Van
Son & Master. Le Thi Nguyen)
Cold storage or refrigerated warehouses: these are the warehouses which are used for
storing perishable commodities like eggs, butter, fruits, vegetables, fish, fresh meat etc.
Goods stored in cold storages can be held for longer time. In fact, cold storages have
made possible the regular supply of certain commodities throughout the year. ( PhD.
Nguyen Van Son & Master. Le Thi Nguyen)
Vu Thi Luong – GMA 02

1.1.3.3. Warehouse classification based on architecture
Closed warehouse are capable of producing closed storage environment, proactively
maintain preservation mode, less affected by the external environment parameters.
( PhD. Nguyen Van Son & Master. Le Thi Nguyen)
Semi – closed warehouse can only cover rain and sun for goods, without the structure
of wall separating the environment of outside warehouse. ( PhD. Nguyen Van Son & Master.
Le Thi Nguyen)
Opencast warehouse (yard of goods) just concentrates reserve goods which is less or
not affected by changes of weather. ( PhD. Nguyen Van Son & Master. Le Thi Nguyen)
1.1.3.4. Main warehouse services
- Warehouse renting service
- Delivery service, transportation and distribution of goods
- Store and preserve goods service
- Packaging and labeling service
- Cargo tallying service
- Stevedoring service
- Warehouse management service

1.2. The indicators to evaluate warehouse operations
The purpose of measurement the ability of operation is to find out whether things are
going the right way or not in order to find out what were the causes that created a poor
operation. Basing on that, people could found solutions for improving operational
ability. The main tools for evaluating operational ability are operational indicators, also
named key operational indicators. They are specific characteristics of the process is
realized according to pre-established standards. The best way to use indicators is to
compare real values with standard values. If there are poor results, poor operational
ability, in reality, improvements for the process have to be made.
According to the Occupational Safety & Health Administration, warehouse safety is
kept a priority in the warehouse operations. White Settlement shows that Warehouse
operations are by definition behind the scenes but the safety practices of all personnel
must be at the forefront of all actions.
The indicators that Colson and Dorigo (2014) used to choose a warehouse are storage
surface and volume; dangerous items; possibility for temperature control; separation of
storage areas; geographical distance to highway connection, train, waterways;
certification; opening hours; assistance with customs; use of technology; handling
equipment; number and characteristics of docks etc.
The indicators that Krauth (2005) used for assessing warehouse operations are storage
surface, storage volume, storage racks, number and characteristics of docks, pallets per
hour, pallet per square meter, opening hours, dwell time and assistance with customs.
The purpose of these indicators mentioned above is to identify the ability of warehouse
operations. Some key indicators presented below are used around the world to measure
warehouse operations:
1.2.1. Safety:
Warehouse structure must ensure conformity with the characteristics of the cargo
stored in warehouse. Based on the character of dry bulk cargoes, business should install
the equipment such as ventilation, temperature and humidity control, lightning
protection, antistatic, guarantee meets the requirements for safety of warehouse.
(Vietnam Standard 48 -1996).
Vu Thi Luong – GMA 02

1.2.2. Dwell Time:
Dwell Time is the time that the cargo stays in the port (yard/ shed/ CFS/ warehouse…).
It allows determining the frequency of cargo through warehouse. (Dr. Nguyen Thanh Thuy,
2015)
1.2.3. Storage Space:
Storage space utilization refers to the average amount of warehouse, or storage,
capacity used over a specific amount of time. Storage space utilization can help
managers assess whether they should change the layout and size of the storage area and
identify obsolete products that should be removed. This formula can also be used to
determine if material flow should increase or decrease. However, it is important to
recognize that warehouses are not necessarily optimized if at maximum capacity. Some
studies suggest that a warehouse capacity of 80-85 percent is optimal because that
allows warehouse managers to respond to shifts in demand in a more feasible manner.
(Jesper Lilelund, 2015)
Ratio of storage space =
Note: 1 ton bulk cargo = 1.36 m3 (German marine insurers)
1.2.4. Cargo preservation
The number of cargo loss in warehouse may be caused by various factors, specifically
dry bulk cargo requires particular temperature, humidity/moisture and ventilation
conditions (storage climate conditions). Favorable temperature ranges between 20°C
and 30°C. In addition, at temperatures > 25°C, metabolic processes increase, leading to
increased CO2 production and self-heating of the dry bulk cargo (German marine insurers).
Good which during storage, must not exceed a maximum temperature or fall below a
minimum temperature and/or which are sensitive to temperature variations.
Besides that, human factor is also a reason of cargo loss. Cargo theft is an international
problem affecting to warehouse operations. Cargo can be stolen in the period of
storing, compromising product integrity and availability. ( Jared S.Palmer, 2010)

This index represents the degree to preserve quality and quantity of the goods stored in
the warehouse. Based on the properties and storage conditions they calculate the real
loss of the goods:
Real loss of the goods =
1.2.5. The area utilization
Frazelle (2002) suggests that the optimum level of warehouse utilization, depending on
the type of operation is a maximum from 86% to 90% for real time, dynamic
operations. Beyond these levels productivity levels tend to decrease and safety
becomes an issue. A figure of 100% is not good practice.
Ratio of area utilization =
