Flexible logistics for millions of shoes
The Belgian municipality of Herstal near Liège is a paradise for all shoe lovers: The place is home to the European Distribution Center for the American shoe manufacturer Skechers. This is where the company sends its sports and casual shoes out into the entire European market. Skechers has automated many operations in its 118.000 m2 facility to speed up processes. However, forklifts are still in demand. Some 75 UniCarriers warehouse trucks help to load and unload delivery trucks, ensure that the high-bay warehouse is restocked and assist in picking and preparing shipments for up to 3,500 customer orders a day.
