Book Summary : Warehouse Management A Complete Guide to Improving Efficiency and Minimizing Costs in the Modern Warehouse

Warehouses are an integral part of the modern supply chain, involved in sourcing, producing and distributing goods. However, due to the
complexities of warehouse operations they can often be one of the most costly parts of the supply chain. Their efficient management is therefore
critical for minimizing cost and contributing to an effective and efficient supply chain.

Warehouse Management provides a complete guide to best practice in warehouse operations.  Covering everything from the latest technological advances to current environmental issues, this book provides an indispensable companion to the modern warehouse. Supported by case studies, the text considers many aspects of warehouse management, including:

  • cost reduction
  • productivity
  • people management
  • warehouse operations

Backed up with numerous case studies that demonstrate how to apply new technology, minimize spending, and create efficient, stream-lined operations, this book is an invaluable resource for warehouse managers, logistics professionals, operations managers and students of logistics.
