Abstract

The expedition warehouses are a key part of every distribution chain. Effective expedition warehouse management has a major impact on the overall quality of the finished products distribution process from manufacturer to customer. The metallurgical industry is characterized by a large stock of products stored, due to the production characteristics of the industry, such as large production campaigns, a wide products portfolio and a wide range of products quality grades. From the above, the importance of the efficient management of stock and the economical use of storage capacities is apparent. The aim of this article is to introduce the issue of the organization of the expedition warehouse of the selected metallurgical enterprise and to present the concept of the model for decision support in the storage of rolled products in the expedition warehouse. The main priority is the efficient use of storage capacities, personnel, handling equipment and optimization of warehouse operations, which will lead to reduction of the time required for order picking and loading.
