Overview

Iraq has many storage facilities available for various types of commodities, whether dry or temperature sensitive, that can be used to store food, non-food, medical, etc. The storage spaces available are owned by governmental and private sector and located mostly in urban areas, within or near ports (land, air, and sea) as well.

Government-owned warehouses usually offer security services and can be rented upon availability. Ministries and government entities, such as Ministry of Trade (MoT), Ministry of Agriculture, JCC, government owned companies, etc. have had rented warehouses to the humanitarian organizations. For private-owned warehouses, the MoT and Chamber of Commerce can be approached for information about warehouses. Also, information about the private warehouses can found at the warehouse locations in industrial areas. Some of private warehouse’s compounds offer security facilities.

Storage capacity is currently sufficient for humanitarian needs, and warehouses are being used in different locations across the country by UN Agencies and INGOs for their programmatic requirements.
