A well-designed inventory management system helps to deal with the task of finding the optimal balance, which will positively affect not only the amount of costs invested in inventory, but also the efficiency of enterprise resource management. The purpose of this work is to identify ways to reduce logistics costs through the competent management of inventory and resources of the enterprise.
