After several extensions and modifications, the Gilgen Logistics was assigned for the new extension of high bay storage system and modification of the production. The high bay storage system was extended with one stacker crane and actually operates with five fully automatic stacker cranes. The storage building was extended up to 75 m with a capacity of 8’000 pallet places.
