Aimed at students on warehouse management courses, it looks at issues such as increasing requirements for new equipment, shortage of space and the resulting delays to services to clients. It assesses solutions such as proper warehouse planning and the redesign of space in order to improve logistics performance.

The author presents a wide variety of problems and the suggested solutions. The Maintenance Stores Dilemma helps readers put together a sustainable and flexible warehouse operations plan. Gwynne Richards illustrates problems that can arise when managing a warehouse, based on his own experiences of working with a number of clients over the years.
