Yusen Logistics expands facilities in Antwerp

Pharmaceuticals logistics specialist Yusen Logistics is starting construction of a new, semi-automated warehouse with 13,000 pallet places at its site on the Left bank in Antwerp.

The warehouse will function almost entirely automatically and will be operational 24/7. One of the most striking innovations in the new warehouse is the "narrow aisle racking" system with induction-guided, unmanned trucks that find the correct pallet places with the aid of sensors.

Handover of the warehouse is planned for December 2020. Including the new warehouses Yusen Logistics has 65,000 m2 of storage space in Antwerp.
