Abstract [en]

The problem in the warehouses is that the old and conventional methods which are obsolete are combined with very crowded conditions. Hence there is always a quest for newer and better methods. However, merely installing the newer methods does not mean that the system is effective and efficient, there is also necessity of a strong supervisory organization of the system to make the methods more effective and this also requires lot of training and managing the operations. The purpose of this thesis is to give an overview and to briefly present the concept of warehousing. Analysing the present situation in warehouses by examining four of the biggest retail warehouses in Sweden with the help of a questionnaire given to the respective warehouse managers. Comparing the present situation to the theoretical framework in order to get an idea of the strategies deployed by the businesses. The warehouses today are deploying a mixture of both latest strategies and technologies and the traditional methods in order to have a good efficiency in the warehouses.
