BMC Training provides on 28 Feb 2021 Warehouse Operations - Planning And Management course [Warehouse , Logistics , Supply Chain and Inventory] in Dubai,UAE


Warehouse operations are often mistakenly thought to exist in a static environment, where conditions and requirements rarely change and where warehouse planning entails the onetime activities of building a structure and providing equipment. Similarly, warehouse management is thought to be merely the supervision of a few simple, highly repetitive tasks. On the contrary, warehouse operations exist in a dynamic environment.
