Although operations seem more important than everything in a business operation, warehouse management has great importance to the success of a business operation. Storage location assignment is very important because of the uncertainty in the number of incoming products, the necessity of answering unknown customers’ demands and the speed rate of response to customer demands. Besides, several factors affect warehouse management. Assigning products to appropriate locations is one of the most important and complex. This study aims to present recent academic works on the storage location assignment problem published from 2018 to 2021. These problems are assigned accordingly. Methods of solution, goals and some related considerations are considered while investigating the works. Recommendations are provided in the conclusion. Based on the reviewed articles, warehouse capacity, market, products, logistics resources and operational configuration are taken into account as restrictions or considerations.
