"The publication of the fourth edition of Warehouse Management is timely. We have learnt a huge amount about supply chain logistics generally, and warehouse operations specifically, during the challenging Covid-19 pandemic period. In this context, Gwynne Richards brings his unique and unrivalled knowledge of the subject to this new edition. It can be read equally profitably by supply chain practitioners and students alike."
*Edward Sweeney, Professor of Supply Chain Management, Heriot Watt University*

"This fourth edition of Warehouse Management is very welcome and provides great insight into all aspects of the subject. I know from my work with Gwynne Richards at The University of Warwick that his students appreciate the book as a source of reference during their studies. It is an invaluable addition to the bookshelves of students and experienced practitioners alike."
*David James, V.P. of Subsidiary Development & Management, KNAPP AG*

"Warehouse Management, fourth edition, is an essential 'one-stop shop' for both experienced practitioners and those who want to fully understand the fundamentals of how to manage a business storage facility. This is a technical topic, yet the book is accessible, with industry terms clearly explained and examples of best practice provided. Warehouse Management is a must-read for everyone in the supply chain and logistics industries, business students and those who want to understand more about how to operate a warehouse."
*Phil Wood, Strategic Programs Director – Northern Europe, Mondelez*
