Automation is changing paradigms in traditional warehouse operations, starting in distribution centres across the global supply chain. There is a blurred line between logistics and technology, as technology is growing at high rate, logistic processes and logistics itself also.

Automated warehouse systems are designed to store different types of items. The systems work according to the principle of “goods to man”. Storage units are placed on the shelves automatically. Transport takes place via automatic cranes and transport systems. Managing your warehouse business is by using a computer by integrating WMS. As storage warehouse units, Euro pallets, plastic boxes etc. can be used in such systems. Regal cranes are designed and executed according to the desired speeds and working height and nominal load. Such solutions can be used in all branches of industry and distribution (food, pharmaceutical, chemical, refrigeration chambers, etc.). In this segment, we are successfully cooperating with the German company Viastore systems, one of the leading European markets. If needed, our specialists will be happy to present the system and device work in practice, analyze your needs and suggest an optimal solution.

An effective automated storage and retrieval system provides several benefits for supply chain management:

  • helps companies cut expenses by minimizing the amount of unnecessary parts and products in storage, and improving organization of the contents of a warehouse. Due to automated processes, it also allows for more storage space
  • reduces labor costs while lowering workforce requirements and increasing safety
  • modeling and managing the logical representation of the physical storage facilities (e.g. racking, etc.)
  • Enables a wireless link to order processing and logistics management in order to pick, pack, and ship product out of the warehouse
  • Tracking where products are stocked, which suppliers they come from, and the length of time they are stored. By analyzing such data, companies can control inventory levels and maximize the use of warehouse space. Also, companies are more prepared for the demands and supplies of the market, especially during special circumstances such as a peak season on a particular month.
