"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 "
"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."
--Darren Ingram "Darren Ingram Media "
