The coronavirus continues causing large distortion and delay in the transportation of goods as many countries in Europe are again seeing a resurgence in COVID-19 cases and therefore are forced to go in another total lockdown. Ports and airports continue operating at half strength due to a shortage of personnel but also due to a limited supply of goods. Shipping companies have cancelled several crossings and there is a shortage of containers. The damage and the backlog caused by the virus and quarantine measures are remaining large.
Your shipments are in transit and you need a shelter while shuttered factories in Europe are closed? We are here to help! Our teams at Maurice Ward Group continue carrying out their duty by offering storage spaces during lockdown, now, and if needed, also in the future.
The warehouse in Brno has an area of 10.000 SQM ft, with various customers in automotive and electronics industries. The goods are stored both in free circulation and in bonded warehouse.
Smart and effective logistics solutions
We provide services for outstanding companies like Ford, BMW, Citroen, Nissan, WV and Skoda. This is why the accuracy of each logistics process is important for us. Thus, Brno warehouse is flexible and we provide specific services to each customer, with 99% KPI.
By using sophisticated technology and our long-term experience with storage and handling of goods, we store about 5,500 pallets and handle 3000 picks per day. As for the goods, they are manipulated with a systematic forklift. We use our own WMS = ULMS, which is modified based on customer’s demand. Moreover, dispatched orders can go all over the world.
We store goods for 5 big customers and about 40 of their vendors, usually in the VMI regime. Customers send us goods in both FC and in a bonded warehouse. In addition to dealing with very difficult and specific demands, mainly when it comes to tracking pcs., we also accept goods based on MPQ and pull them out per boxes and pallets. Furthermore, our systems are electronically connected to the customers.

The first ever ‘cargo only’ flight was recorded in November 1910 in the USA, using a Wright Model B aeroplane that flew 65 miles carrying a package of silk. The business owner used the pioneering transport more as a PR stunt to celebrate the opening of his store, with the bundle of silk cut into individual pieces and glued onto souvenir postcards.
