Abstract

Because the warehouse is part of a larger logistics system, communications to and from it assume critical importance. Sometimes the warehouse serves as a buffer between manufacturer and customer, sometimes between manufacturer and supplier and sometimes between wholesaler and retailer. It is always a place where accurate and timely communication is vital.
