Hyster develops warehouse space-saving solutions

Logistics
Warehouse space is becoming increasingly inadequate in the face of rising demand. One reason for this, is the continued growth of online shopping. Statista forecasts that revenues in B2B transactions alone will rise from over €40 billion in 2018 to around €46 billion this year. Space-saving solutions from Hyster can help to utilise every square meter of available space within the warehouse.
