Warehouse management - improve efficiency & minimise costs

Warehouses are an integral part of the modern supply chain; involved in the sourcing, production and distribution of goods.  Due to the complexities of warehouse operations they can often be one of the most costly parts of the supply chain. Their efficient management is therefore critical in terms of minimising cost and contributing to an effective and efficient supply chain.
 
A new publication, Warehouse Management, by Gwynne Richards (Published by Kogan Page in June 2011, 39.99) provides a complete guide to best practice in warehouse operations. As well as exploring how to increase warehouse productivity and cost reduction it also includes the latest technological advances being applied to warehouses, as well as information on recent Health and Safety legislation. Other crucial topics covered include; people management, risk, warehouse design and how to operate a third party warehouse.  The book is backed up with numerous case studies which demonstrate how to apply new technology, minimise spend and create efficient stream-line operations. It is an invaluable resource for warehouse managers, logistics professionals and students studying logistics.
 
Gwynne Richards has over twenty years experience in warehouse management and logistics. As well as providing a number of courses on warehouse management for practitioners he is also a visiting lecturer at the University of Warwick and the University of Aston.
