Carry Cost

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Carrying_cost

In marketing, carrying cost, carrying cost of inventory or holding cost refers to the total cost of holding inventory. This includes warehousing costs such as rent, utilities and salaries, financial costs such as opportunity cost, and inventory costs related to perishability, shrinkage (theft) and insurance.[1] Holding cost also includes the opportunity cost of reduced responsiveness to customers’ changing requirements, slowed introduction of improved items, and the inventory’s value and direct expenses, since that money could be used for other purposes.
