Review quote

"Praise for the previous edition: " "An excellent discussion of warehouse operations, covering virtually all aspects of managing a warehouse from the high level strategic view down to floor level processes."--Kate Vitasek "author of The Vested Outsourcing Manual " "[S]olid manual on warehouse management. ...Gwynne Richards has written a knowledgeable book on warehouse operations that details today's facilities and their management challenges. ...getAbstract recommends this masterful manual to logistics and warehouse managers - especially new ones - as well as to external suppliers, facility planners and designers, and anyone in the supply chain who seeks insight about warehouse operations."--getAbstract "Inc. " "An excellent discussion of warehouse operations, covering virtually all aspects of managing a warehouse from the high level strategic view down to floor level processes."--Kate Vitasek "author of The Vested Outsourcing Manual " ""Warehouse Management" manages to address the full spectrum of knowledge needs on the topic, covering everything from the role of the warehouse and detailed information on picking, to chapters on sustainability, outsourcing, performance management, and the warehouse of the future. At over 400 pages, you are unlikely to get through everything Warehouse Management has to offer in one airplane ride, but you are quite likely to wear out and dog-ear plenty of pages that address the challenges and opportunities arising daily in the modern warehouse."--Kelly Barner "Buyers Meeting Point "" "[S]olid manual on warehouse management.

"" "This is a book that should be strongly considered as required reading for anyone whose job is even the most tangentially-linked to the supply chain. ...The author has done a great job with this rather hefty book in managing a fine balancing act: providing a LOT of great, informative, up-to-date information for the "supply chain geeks" as well as offering a lot of actionable, helpful, no-hype-just-facts to the rest of us."
