Contemporary enterprises operate on a highly competitive market. Turbulent environment and individual needs of consumers cause that plenty of enterprises cooperate with other organizations within a supply chain. The above conditions determine the need for the managers to make effective logistics decisions. Over the last few years, the enterprises faced some high cost pressures in numerous industries. Therefore, they started reorganizing and improving logistics process in order to allow further reduction in operating expenses. A demanding customer and shorter economic life-time increase the demand for flexible and fast deliveries (Grosse & Glock, 2013). Enterprises introduce changes and seek saving also in the area of warehousing. Warehouses pose some important links in an enterprise. They determine places where goods are deposited and stored in a given supply chain link, until they are released. Warehouses as defined by Shah and Khanzode (2017) are a kind of buffer which serves to store goods between processes carried out in enterprises and between the enterprises themselves, thus allowing continuous movement of goods.
