Simply stated, intralogistics is the management of operations (“logistics”) within (“intra”) a warehouse. You can think of it as “inside logistics.” More broadly speaking, intralogistics refers to the optimization of all planning and movement of materials and information inside a distribution center or warehouse, from the moment of arrival at the dock door to the time it is picked, packed, and shipped. While the term intralogistics is fairly new, the concept has existed for millennia, since early agrarian societies first began storing and distributing food. While there is overlap with the more common term, “material handling,” which refers to the movement, storage, and disposal of material goods, intralogistics is both more specific to warehouse & fulfillment operations and broad to include expertise, telematics, design, and engineering.
