Ergonomic under Load: Vacuum Handling Systems for the Logistics Industry

One in three online buyers now makes several online orders every week. In 2019, online sales grew by over eleven percent compared to the previous year. This is the result of the e-commerce consumer study by the German E-Commerce and Distance Selling Trade Association (bevh). Manufacturers, dealers and logistics service providers therefore need to optimize their processes accordingly.
