I'm a community college logistics instructor, and I adopted this book for my warehouse management class after looking at 4 other books. This book is current and relevant for warehouse operations today. It includes references & photos of latest material handling and storage equipment. The book is easy to read, understand and apply. I would recommend the book for any warehouse manager, or student of the topic.
