We introduce the energy minimizing (order picker) forklift routing problem (EMFRP) in Green Warehousing area. The EMFRP determines the route of an order picker forklift to pick the orders located on the shelves in different heights and gather them in depot. Its objective is to minimize the total energy consumed during the horizontal and vertical moves of the forklift through the tour. We present a mixed integer programming formulation for the EMFRP. Computational results are provided to recognize the amount of saving in energy consumption achieved by considering vertical moves in addition to horizontal ones.
