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. Far more than just a great big storage shed in an industrial neighborhood, the up-to-date warehouse may be a space-age environment where robots roll efficiently back and forth, guided by a state-of-the-art radio system as they collect ordered merchandise. Supply chain consultant Gwynne Richards has written a knowledgeable book on warehouse operations that details today’s facilities and their management challenges. 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.
In this summary, you will learn
- What challenges warehouse managers face on a daily basis,
- What practices ensure superior warehouse operations and
- What the future holds for warehousing.
