At Europe's largest skate shop, SkatePro, the company has experienced a tremendous growth in e-commerce and export. Therefore, the company has continuously invested in more storage space and, most recently, a new online scanner solution for the warehouse to ensure fast registration of goods to keep up with the rising demand.
Today, more and more consumers are shopping online, making e-commerce a massive growth area within retail. The increasing online consumption is also something that is noticed by the e-commerce company SkatePro, which was established in 1996 by Jakob Høy Biegel. The company started as a hobby project but has since then grown into an online market leader in action sports, experiencing a steady growth year after year.
SkatePro sells equipment online in 26 countries, employs 160 people and has 22 nationalities represented in customer service. The company has also won the e-commerce award five times. In addition to the online business, SkatePro also has two physical stores in Aarhus and Copenhagen.
