7 reviews for Warehouse Management

  1. :

    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.

  2. :

    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.

  3. :

    Warehouse managers are under enormous pressure to reduce order lead times, increase productivity, cut costs, and improve customer service – all while ensuring the health and safety of warehouse employees, and protecting the environment. To help warehouse managers confront these issues head-on, Richards provides a comprehensive guide to implementing best practices in their facilities. This book will help warehouse managers gain a full understanding of these different uses, and the technology necessary to maintain operational efficiency in order to succeed.

  4. :

    [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

  5. :

    [A] thought provoking book and should be welcomed by any warehouse keeper wanting to improve and develop their business. [A] valuable contribution to warehousing, offering as the banner on the cover states practical guidance to improved efficiency whilst minimizing costs.

  6. :

    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.

  7. :

    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
