Background: Businessmen intending to rent or purchase a warehouse facility find it difficult to compare them. Surface area, cubic capacity or the number of reloading docks are not sufficient factors to make a decision.

The aim of this paper is to provide a basis for the creation of international system of evaluation of warehouses from the point of view of future investors.

Methods: A literature review was carried out in terms of magazine division. Then, using comparative analysis, the identified divisions were collated.

Results: The set of parameter and their values for three different warehouse classes are suggested in the final table. The presented parameters of the division are a preliminary proposal of the possible classification system of warehouses. 

Conclusions: The assumption of this publication is to start a discussion on the division of warehouse facilities into classes, which will ultimately lead to crystallization of the division, useable for businessmen during the investment process.

Keywords: warehouses classes, storage classes, warehouse classification
