I have a question about storing cleaning equipment.
Can it be stored near main entrance to packing house - sorting area?
Is the place near doors always correct? A
I have a question about colour codung? How many colours should I use in packing house?
one for storage area, one for sorting area, one for toilets and offices, is it enough?

There is no precise science to this. The colour coding you have chosen seems to be based on the risk of transferring contaminants from one area to another. Storing near doors isn't a problem, as long as not too close to open or exposed product and equipment is maintained in good condition.
