Warehouse managers are responsible for coordinating all activities of a warehouse, from the receipt of goods and materials, to specialised storage and eventual despatch. They liaise and negotiate with suppliers and transport agencies and are expert at coordinating and planning storage in order for it to be efficient and cost effective. Specialisations within this occupation include the storage of frozen goods, perishables and dangerous items such as explosives. Typically, warehouse managers have qualifications in logistics/supply chain management as well as considerable experience in this area, but also in people management, budgeting and occupational health and safety.
