The establishment of a Military warehouse is solely to support the military need which contradicting the commercial warehouse which profit is the motivation to maintain competitiveness. As such, there is limited innovation in this operation that leads to inaccurate data recording, loss items, and real-time management.

A framework has been developed to illustrate the model of efficient military warehouse management. A qualitative study was adopted using a focus-group interview to investigate the subject research.
