About the book

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. Special consideration is given to flexible ground conveyers, new storage systems and automated picking systems.

Warehousing and Transport Logistics covers transportation, information systems, procurement, finance, performance metrics as well as warehousing and distribution. There are more than 200 examples with solutions outlining the disadvantages of depending, and about 250 questions to encourage independent learning.
