Warehousing & Distribution Centres - Jula postorder, Sweden
Jula is one of the fastest growing companies in the DIY business in Sweden, with direct sales from their own distribution centres and mail order division. Jula has a central warehouse at Skara, and is now established across Scandinavia.
Due to their fast expansion Jula has a continuously increasing need for warehouse space. New products and new distribution centres demand efficient storage, handling and fast and precise shipments. The latest investment is an expansion of 56,000 pallet locations, for which they used Constructor P90 pallet racking which was installed in 2011.
Jula first invested in land on the outskirts of the city of Skara which is an ideal location for expansion. The original warehouse had a space of 32,000 m² and the expansion was realised in steps by adding on individual buildings of 10,000m².
