TranSystems, a professional services consulting firm, has released the 12th Edition of the Rules of Thumb booklet

The Rules of Thumb is a popular resource for the supply chain industry containing costing information for nearly everything that goes inside a distribution center/warehouse facility (material handling, storage, technology, lighting, etc.). Gross & Associates, acquired by TranSystems, started this industry staple 22 years ago, and TranSystems has continued the tradition since the acquisition.

Led by the past president of Gross & Associates, Don Derewecki, TranSystems’ staff updates the booklet every other year, and/or as frequently as the industry dictates. Hard copies are available by contacting TranSystems at (800) 800-5261 or by visiting the Web site. Visiting the Web site also provides access to the Rules of Thumb Online tool. The booklet and online tool will also be available this summer on WERC.org.
