Warehouses are special types of sites. They are centralized locations allowing the tracking and storage of inventory. They contain "Rooms", "Containers", and "Staff". Depending on the district, a warehouse could be a small portable building or a large facility capable of housing a significant quantity of goods and assets. In addition, a district could have multiple warehouses of varying sizes.

With a warehouse, a district can receive, store, and distribute tagged assets like computers and network equipment, as well as assets like consumables or furniture that do not normally get assigned an asset tag. Untagged assets are tracked by quantity, allowing the district to collect data showing the current inventory counts as well as how the assets are distributed throughout the district.
