The warehouse complex considered in this project is a third party warehouse, which caters to many clients and its stock keeping requirements. To meet the needs of its clients the warehouse incorporates different warehousing methods and warehousing systems i.e. conventional racking systems and automated storage systems. Data collection was carried out at 3 existing warehouses, which will be housed in the warehouse complex when completed. Warehouse data such as layout, storage system specification, expected transaction rate, etc were obtained from the owners. The warehouse complex will cater to many new clients beside its existing clients.
