As a way to demonstrate a commitment to sustainability, green supply chain management is gaining popularity all over the world. Warehouses, as an imortant part of supply chains, are not excluded. However, wider adoption of green warehousing depends also on it’s contribution to better economic performances and competitiveness. Hopefully, increasing warehousing efficiency could be in correlation with decreasing energy consumption, therefore simultaneously greening warehouses too. In order to improve warehousing efficiency there are many methods, models and technologies developed and used. Since in most warehouses the biggest potencial lies in order-picking, this paper presents an overview of order-picking methods and technologies and their potentials in improving order-picking efficiency, based mainly on reducing traveling distances.
