Bus/Financial - Business/Commerce (general) / warehouses
English term or phrase: warehouse / warehousing
assuming that
"warehouse" = lagerbygning, for example: (...how huge warehouses and distribution centres use mobile computers...)

How would I then translate "warehousing"?
("rugged, mobile computers for the warehousing industry") or ("warehousing and distribution")

Are these two words used interchangeably?

oplagring
Explanation:
Oplagring perhaps

I thought of ´lagertjenester´, but this seems to be largely taken over by the IT industry.

Warehousing is more the service or the processes involved than the buildings, which are part of it.

´Lager- og logistikindustrien´ is what I would call the inudstry in Danish, however - maybe the native speakers have a better suggestion.
