Supply chains are constantly faced with challenging and evolving consumer demands. To remain competitive in the market, all partners along the supply chain are responsible for value-adding activities. Warehousing and inventory management are significant components of a supply chain, irrespective of how short or long, and have the propensity either to elevate operations or render them redundant.

Business warehouse and inventory management begins with Part A, contextualising supply chain management and warehouse management.
