Automation saves money: 

Automated racking and automated shelving systems pack items closer together than any other solution available to the market.

By reducing or eliminating the need for access aisle space, and replacing the need for human access with high-tech machines, warehouses can operate at a higher pace and with greater efficiency. This translates into long-term cost savings.

Automation increases uptime:

Automated storage systems can operate 24 hours a day, 365 days a year, in hot or cold warehouse conditions.

This level of performance gives automated warehouses extremely high throughput at lower per unit costs than operator wages.

Improves warehouse accuracy:

Greater accuracy afforded by warehouse management software means automated warehouse systems save you money through greater item rotation and order picking control and creates a faster and more logical operation.

Automated warehouse storage drastically reduces the risk of human error, which can cause damages to stock and compromise operator safety.

Reduces staff requirements:

Warehouse automation reduces the need for human operation – including the need for operators to comply with health and safety concerns.

This, in addition to saving you money, reduces the risk of damage to stock or your racking installations.
