There are two main categories in the wide range of household appliances: small household appliances (irons, fans, televisions, etc.) and larger ones, also known as “white appliances”. This latter category includes, for example, refrigerators, washing machines, and ovens. Household appliances are particularly heavy, bulky, fragile and susceptible to theft: therefore it is essential to rely on companies that can offer safe storage and transport, managed by qualified personnel that can respect the uniqueness of this particular category of goods. Therefore, it becomes strategically very important to have operational flexibility to balance warehouses with diversified structures (pallet racks, vertical warehouses, etc.) in order to fulfil orders quickly, smoothly managing the traceability of incoming flows ( to control procurement) and outgoing flows ( to manage deliveries). GRUBER Logistics has been involved in transport and logistics for the household appliances industry for decades and knows the unique aspects of this industry. We work to offer you the highest quality transport, with an emphasis on limiting damage, and provide you with safe and customised packaging solutions to protect the integrity of the goods at destination.
