Abstract : The research’s overall objective was to examine effects of warehousing management on organizational efficiency; a case of Africa Global Logistics, Rwanda Ltd. The specific objectives are; to determine the effect of order picking on organizational efficiency, to assess the effect of inventory tracking measures on organizational efficiency, to investigate the effect of automated and retrieval inventory control system on organizational efficiency and to analyse the effect of material handling on organizational efficiency. In order to achieve these objectives, the researcher used a descriptive and correlation research designs. In this research, the researcher further considered a sample size of 96 respondents from selected department atAfrica Global Logistics, Rwanda Ltd. To select them, the researcher used stratified sampling technique. Questionnaire was use to collect the data of this research and data were analyzed using the mean, standard deviation as well as the correlational and regression analysis. High R Square (Coefficient of Determination): The R Square value of 0.908 indicates that approximately 90.8% of the variance AGL's performance can be attributed to the predictors considered in the model. This high percentage validates our previous discussions regarding the substantial influence of warehouse management practices on overall efficiency. Adjusted R Square and Generalization: The Adjusted R Square value of 0.623, while slightly lower than the R Square, indicates that around 62.3% of the variance is genuinely explained by the model's predictors after accounting for factors like the number of predictors and sample size. This resonates with our earlier emphasis on creating a model that can generalize well to new data and avoid over fitting. This study therefore highlights the intricate relationships between warehousing management and organizational performance at the AGL. The alignment findings with existing research reinforces the importance of practices such as communication, inventory tracking, and material handling in driving performance. By implementing the researcher’s recommendations, AGL can further elevate their organizational efficiency and continue to deliver exceptional service to their customers. Based on these findings, the study offers the following recommendations to AGL for enhancing organizational performance; wihile the impact of order picking on organizational efficiency was statistically significant in this study, AGL should still continue on the path of regular evaluations and refinements of their order picking processes to identify potential performance gains.
