When shift working is adopted, public transport and catering facilities need to be available for the staff.
Other considerations include potential congestion during shift changeovers and the effect on nearby residential housing of vehicle movements, noise and light pollution.

Staff are paid the same amount each month but their hours will vary depending on the work content within the warehouse operation. This can include working longer shifts during periods of increased activity and being sent home when things become quieter.
