Current logistics planning methods use the calculation of mechanical engineering and construction to plan for logistics challenges. Warehousing and Transport Logistics covers pre-empting and responding to logistics challenges using pre-dimensioning and not pre-calculating. The different topics within transport and warehousing are divided into functions, presenting the advantages and disadvantages of different applications, interesting tools for planning and economic efficiency calculations.
