This talk addresses suited warehousing systems and important optimization problems in modern e-commerce retailing. E-commerce mainly processes low-volume-high-mix picking orders, because private households tend to order just a few pieces per order from a large assortment. This talk gives an overview on suited warehousing systems, which are able to process a large number of these orders under great time pressure. For selected warehousing systems, we also address some important optimization problems and define future research needs.
