The environmentally friendly site includes 30 loading bays, four drive-in access routes and uses Radio-Frequency Identification (RFID) technology to track stock throughout the warehouse.

Additionally, Customer Services will now be conducted from a single site to further consolidate smooth supply chain operations.
The new location links easily to both national and international destinations throughout Central and Eastern Europe.
Mr. Michal Peter, Managing Director of Yusen Logistics (Czech) said: “Thanks to the new location and purpose built site, we will be able to offer customers more options for their supply chain management needs.”
