Location types are categories of the different locations in the warehouse, i.e., bins or pallets, small or large. Use location types to describe how inventory is stored, i.e., upper rack or floor-loaded. This helps identify different tools needed to access/move inventory, such as a forklift or pallet jack. Using location types makes billing storage much more manageable for 3PLs, depending on their pricing model.
