Jungheinrich outsources parts storage

Jungheinrich has outsourced the storage of its lift truck parts held in the UK to Amethyst.

UK Head of supply chain Roger Stevens said: “With a fast changing business demanding a more flexible approach to parts storage, we were convinced that efficiencies could be gained from outsourcing our parts supply business.

“The decision to work with the Amethyst Group was based on their proven experience serving the automotive and aftermarket sectors, which offered the supply chain improvements we were seeking, operating on a ring-fenced common SAP/R4 platform, with the transfer of skilled staff for business continuity” said Stevens.
