The Internet of Things (IoT) is a key concept of the fourth industrial revolution and is considered one of the most promising areas for controlling and improving supply chain performance. This manuscript is an exploration of new proposals for Internet of Things applications in warehouse management over the past five years. A review of the academic literature published between 2015 and 2019 was conducted, with the goal of providing a full description of the cumulative state of research on this topic. Warehousing operations were investigated in the context of five main functions: reception, storage, picking, packing, and shipping. Contributions associated with the use of radio frequency identification (RFID) in reception operations and the use and integration of the Warehouse Management System (WMS) for the support of storage activities and optimization of safety conditions and product profiling are noteworthy. Also, proposals related to Automated Guided Vehicle (AVG) and database management systems to minimize search, travel time, and to avoid picking errors, design of automated packaging systems for packing operations, and a tracking system for the delivery of goods in shipping operations, are highlighted as well. Finally, this synthesis reveals that these types of proposals continue to be a topic of interest in research concerning supply chain management, offering reliable bibliographic support that can be used as a starting point in the consultation and formulation of new initiatives for future researchers or professionals in this field.
