Skechers is a household name across Europe, and the company has reputation for quality to uphold - so when it comes to operations at the European distribution centre in Herstal, Belgium, things need to run seamlessly.
With a 118,000m2 facility and up to 3,500 customer orders to deal with every day, Skechers needs a solid forklift fleet to get the job done, even if many processes are now automated. With 75 UniCarriers trucks, including reach trucks, order pickers and pallet trucks, the company's tough material handling demands are met.
But Skechers doesn't just benefit from trucks - UniCarriers' expertise in logistics processes, flexibility in financing and comprehensive attitudes to service has resulted in many years of successful cooperation.
Supplying large retailers and individual consumers with their orders efficiently.
An on-site technician to ensure uptime, fast delivery of short-term hire vehicles to meet peaks in demand, and ergonomic trucks modified for efficiency and safety.
Improved logistics processes and ability to meet high demand, even as the EDC has grown five times larger since 2002.
"It is extremely important for us to be highly flexible and creative in dealing with new or changed requirements. UniCarriers knows our business right down to the tiniest detail and is able to provide us with solid advice on optimising logistics processes. That is one of the reasons for our many years of successful cooperation."
— Bart Geenen, Skechers Director of Operations EDC
