    ICI Paris XL in Vilvoorde, Belgium has a depot that serves the Benelux market. The stock and the shop equipment are controlled at this central depot. The company’s logistics are managed by subsidiary company, Parbelux.

    Having already operated a Hyster materials handling fleet, ICI Paris XL required agile, compact vehicles to operate in the narrow corridors of the depot, following automation and rationalization of some of the supply processes.
