Introduction

Traditionally, a warehouse had been regarded as a passive storage facility for inventories of raw materials, supplies, spare parts, or finished goods. Today, however, new roles are being assigned to warehouses, such as rearranging delivered goods into customer-specific product packages. Some are even performing certain functions that would normally be associated with manufacturing plants, such as final assembly, finishing, and repacking. All are expected to add value to a company’s supply chain.
