Function / Activity
Stockists run storage capacities. They lease storage to the owners of goods. This activity primarily concerns the bulk goods (petroleum, chemicals, liquid food, cereals, ores, peat...)
At the customer’s request, they can take care of the entries and removals of goods, and, in some cases, mix the stocks.
Introduction to the profession in Marseille-Fos
About ten companies are specialised in this activity, and regroup approximately 200 people.
Future development of the profession
Considering the chargers’ general tendency to focus back on their specific activities, the type of services provided by the stockists will certainly develop in the future.
