ABSTRACT
The initiative for 2000 by the Warehouse and Materials Handling Special Interest Group of the Institute of Logistics and Transport was the launch of the first working groups covering Mobile Handling Equipment Management and Racking and Storage Design and Layout. For members who attended the Fleet Management group session, the key topic was the contractual issues relating to equipment acquisition. Specific project issues raised by members were the focus of the racking and storage session. The PUMP principle, or the Pace x Utilization x Methods = Performance principle, was introduced to workshop participants by Ashley Deaton as the basis for assessing potential improvement opportunities in distribution center operations.
