Transportation and Warehouse Management
Transportation is the movement of goods from one location to another. Modes of transport include air, rail, road, water, cable, pipeline and space. The field can be divided into infrastructure, vehicle and operations. Transportation infrastructure consists of the fixed installations necessary for transport, including roads, railway, airway, waterways, canals and pipelines and terminals such as airports, railway stations, bus stations, warehousing, trucking terminals, refueling depots (including fueling docks and fuel stations) and seaports. Terminals may be used both for interchange of passengers and cargo and for maintenance.
Warehouse management involves the receipt, storage and movement of goods, (normally finished goods), to intermediate storage locations or to a final customer. In the multi0echelon model for distribution, there may be multiple levels of warehouses. This includes a central warehouse, a regional warehouses (serviced by the central warehouse) and potentially retail warehouses (serviced by the regional warehouses). Warehouse design and process design within the warehouse (e.g. wave picking) is also part of warehouse management.
