Jungheinrich Launches UK-based Racking Spares Initiative
10th June 2019
Jungheinrich has launched a new racking spares initiative, with parts now held in the UK. The new announcement will ensure easy access to required racking parts for fast fulfilment of service requests in what is a rapidly growing market.
Racking spares now held in the UK include essential components, comprising uprights, beams, horizontal and diagonal bracing, nuts, bolts and more. The company says the speed in which spare parts can be attained will considerably reduce lead times and drive efficiencies, while maintaining and improving SLAs. It says the launch is “part of a continued global investment by Jungheinrich to provide dedicated local support to its expanding international customer base”.
Steve Richmond, Director – Logistics Systems, Jungheinrich UK, comments: “Combine the demand for 24×7 warehouse operations with a shortage of labour and warehouse space, and supply chains are faced with the perfect storm. An optimised racking solution can increase efficiency and throughput while unlocking additional space vertically, an area of our business where we are seeing rapid double digit year on year growth.
“Racking is not just a storage medium, and the trend for high bay racking solutions reflects this. We are a leading provider of bespoke, interconnected intralogistics solutions for the warehouse and so a UK based inventory of racking spare parts will further support our business as we take on new projects and uphold the highest levels of customer consultation and service. If there is maintenance to be carried out on these crucial structures, then Jungheinrich can do so quickly and efficiently.”
