Warehousing and Transportation Logistics examines professional transport and warehousing logistics, and offers an overview of all logistics functions for the area of internal business logistics, so-called intra-logistics, with a particular focus on transport, warehousing and assembly logistics. It includes interfaces such as unit creation, material flow or goods storage as well as systems and management for planning or information to identify objects, control and processing of orders. This book does not just contain specialist knowledge for students of technical subjects, but it also serves as a practice-oriented book for the planning of bachelor and master degree theses, with a multitude of useful information and ideas. It is also a workbook for professional practitioners, production, planning and industrial engineers, who are specifically concerned with the planning side of this specialist area.
