Storage is required for all items based on their mass.
Storage in Timber & Stone 1.71 uses a global system, meaning that a resource stockpiles gives access to the settlements entire resource storage rather than individual items being stored in a specific stockpile.
This means that you can build as many stockpiles as you wish and your settlers will be able to pick up and drop off items to all of them.
You can use this to make your settlements much more efficient, settlers gathering raw resources can drop off items to a close by stockpile while craftspeople can pick them up immediately from stockpiles built close to their workshops.
