Abstract: As customer markets globalize, supply chains are increasingly depending on efficient and effective logistic systems in order to distribute products in a large geographical area. Warehouses are an important part of supply chains, and therefore warehouse operations need to work in an efficient and effective way. Currently, literature mainly focusses on warehouse design and individual warehouse processes. In this paper, a real-life case study demonstrates the value of studying the combined effect of routing and zoning policies in order to minimize the distance traveled by order pickers.
