Testimony by Troels F. LARSEN, JYSK Contract Manager Logistics
To support the group's growth ambitions, JYSK could not be happy with traditional warehouses. The ground footprint and the distances covered by forklift truck operators would have been too excessive.
GSE therefore built a high-rack warehouse for us in Poland, with 2 x 43m high bays. This system allowed us to genuinely enhance our productivity. What we liked about GSE is their ability to provide us with genuine solutions to respond to our objectives.
