In this paper we investigate automated storage/retrieval systems where a due date is specified for each retrieval order. We consider the inclusion of both order retrieval and storage in the same tour when possible. Rules are developed for sequencing and batching orders to tours such that the total tardiness of retrievals per group of orders is minimized.
