Warehouses are the facilities in the supply chain where goods are held or stored. Warehousing affects customer service levels, stock-out rates, and sales and marketing success. Warehouses act as a bridge between the upstream members of the supply chain and the downstream members of the supply chain. In this chapter we discussed the importance of the warehouse and its operations.
They are: presence synergies, industry synergies, operating flexibility, location flexibility, and scale economies. Later we discussed the elements that go into planning a warehouse. They are: site selection, product-mix considerations, material handling equipment, and warehousing design.
Finally we examined the different aspects of managing a warehouse. Various aspects of managing a warehouse include stocking the warehouse, personnel training, developing work procedures, security arrangements in the warehouse, preventing product deterioration, and billing and inventory control.
