Modern warehouses present a managerial challenge. Take a look behind the scenes.
If you’re not in the warehouse business, you may be surprised to learn what is happening inside modern facilities. And if you’re an insider, you know exactly what is going on – or what the potential is – and you’ll welcome this solid manual on warehouse management.

With a bit of notice to US readers that the book has a UK orientation, getAbstract recommends this masterful manual to logistics and warehouse managers – especially new ones – as well as to external suppliers, facility planners and designers, and anyone in the supply chain who seeks insight about warehouse operations. Come on inside the loading dock and have a look around.
