Warehouse - Material Management

Discover what it takes to optimise and manage key warehousing duties more efficiently with this professional tutorial. Explore how warehousing and material handling fit into the wider logistics strategy, along with the core aims or warehousing and important activities within a warehouse. Study the principles of packaging, stock control and the importance of balancing supply with demand.

The value and importance of efficient warehouse management cannot be overemphasised. Warehousing refers to the temporary storing of goods or materials, which are to be sold or distributed at a later time. The most efficient warehousing operations are those that meticulously align supply with demand. Their stock levels cater to the needs of the business, though never become or excessive or run short. The greater the efficiency of the warehouse, the smaller the facility needs to be and the greater its potential profitability. Unfortunately, evidence suggests that most warehousing and material handling strategies don’t come close to reaching their full potential.
