Here, Yusen provides comprehensive storage services for Mondi, including, among other things, unloading of material coming from the production plant in Štětí, internal handling and loading to target customers.
In addition to warehouse processes, Yusen also provides shuttle transport between the production plant and the warehouse for partner Mondi.

Handling of paper rolls by electric VZV with hydraulic tongs
The warehouse building with a total area of 15,000 m² includes 300 m² of office space and facilities for employees, 24 unloading docks and 2 drive-in docks. 20 employees will take care of the operatives of the warehouse, with operations also on weekends and holidays. The entire area of the warehouse is used for block storage of material in stacks of rolls stored up to 6 meters high. The rolls are handled by a technique adapted to this, specifically frontal electric trolleys with an additional device – hydraulic tongs. It is possible to transport 2 rolls up to a total weight of 2.6 tons in one move. All material movements are monitored using scanners ensuring online communication with Yusen's warehouse system - Scale. This system enables a wide range of configurations that bring efficiency in material storage and warehouse operations, in addition, it also offers clear data visualization, providing an immediate view of operational KPIs.
