A growing number of variants, changed manufacturing conditions and new network structures call for the optimization or redesign of warehouses. Another reason for warehouse planning is the need to introduce a higher degree of automation with more efficient processes. A third reason are warehouse structures that become outdated over time, which are often combined with outsourced logistics services and in-house structures.

During warehouse planning, factors that are specific to a certain industry such as cooling, batch management or adherence to the first-in-first-out principle need to be considered. A large number of sales channels, particularly for retail and e-commerce, also serve to create complexity.
