The current tough competition prevalent within the market economy is forcing business entities to achieve efficiency in their processes. This also applies to the transfer of goods from point A to point B, which is the subject of transportation. This process is influenced by many factors. It is necessary to not only consider the time,i.e. the fact that the required goods must be delivered in time, but it is also essential to take the financial aspect linked into account, for example, with the cost items such as fuel, salaries etc. These and many other factors also influence the movement of goods within a warehouse, in which the business entity must maximize the space required for the storage of the goods, while minimizing the time necessary for the storage, and equally while optimizing the cost. The aim of this paper follows from the above, which is based on the facts of the course of storage operations in the chosen enterprise,to design an optimal layout of the storage area which should increase the efficiency of the logistical operations.
