The new central warehouse is one of the largest in Sweden as well as in the Nordic region. With the automation, Rusta will substantially improve its warehouse productivity, accuracy, and cost-efficiency. The modern, high-tech facility consists of 65.000 square meters and houses a fully-automated high-bay warehouse for pallet goods.

Supply chain operation center

Rusta's supply chain operation is centralized and controlled from one single location, providing time and significant cost savings. Over 3,000 pallets arrive each day from European suppliers, and up to 30 containers from Asia. Approximately 400 e-commerce orders are completed for home delivery.
