As with any other work environment, employers looking to hire warehouse employees look for experience--which is especially vital in a warehouse environment, where safety is always of high concern. Employers also look for applicants with an understanding of what the warehouse opening requires. And the objective statement at the top of your resume offers you a great opportunity to tout both your experience and preparedness.

Review the list of requirements and responsibilities included in the job posting for the warehouse position for which you'd like to apply. Focus on job specific elements, and omit general requirements--such as certifications or physical fitness. Focus on what separates you from other applicants.
Open up a word processor on your computer and jot down a few keywords or phrases that summarise what the employer is looking for in an employee--reference the requirements in the posting. Think of what most qualifies you for the position.
Start out your objective by specifying what you're looking for in a new job and how your skills relate to the warehouse position. Include any past or current experience you have working in a warehouse--cite the industry or sector if you don't have experience working in the position for which you're applying.
Edit your objective down to one or two sentences. Remove references to yourself. Leave the sentence(s) intact but remove "I" or "I am" so that the focus of the objective stays on your skills and qualifications and the job you are seeking.
