The book gives a comprehensive overview of all aspects of managing a warehouse. It can be read as a whole, but can also be used as a reference guide. The book is practical in nature and is filled with actual and current examples. For those who want to start implementing immediately it holds Warehouse Audit Checklists, which gives you a practical starting point. I would recommend this book for anybody that wants to get a better understanding of what happens in a warehouse, and the many things one needs to take into account if one wants to manage one effectively.
