We work for the retail distribution in France and the UK. In France, we are the pioneers and market leader for the “drive” business, where customers purchase their goods on the Internet and collect it by car at their best convenience. We ensure the goods are waiting for them, using our hardware (stacker cranes or minishuttles) and our software Maestro+.
