The studying of relationships between subsystems, creating a logistic warehouse system, is one of the most interesting issues in terms of designing and optimization of logistic warehouse systems. It is important to use of these relationships in practice. The authors propose to assume the energy consumption of the system (which was calculated according to the described model), as an index that allows to compare individual options. Thanks to this model it is possible to match the system of information interchange to the given equipment, and vice versa. Three warehouse options were analyzed from the given warehouse system point of view. Three options of a warehouse system of information interchange were tested from the given warehouse equipment point of view.
