Inventory and Warehouse Management
Inventory and warehouse management involves maintaining inventory levels in a manner that aligns with the business strategy and goals, supporting the coordination of supply and demand, while protecting inventory value.
Warehouse management also entails the movement of materials and goods into and out of storage efficiently, safely, and with minimal inventory damage. As business practices and technology evolve, inventory and warehouse management must adapt to new distribution channels and customer/consumer expectations by creating new processes that deliver the desired results.

A. Inventory Management in Logistics
B. Inventory Management Methods
C. Inventory Control
D. Warehousing Strategy and Management
