Companies are adopting warehouse automation technologies to solve a variety
of challenges. Vertical automated storage and retrieval systems (ASRS) support faster picking processes, space savings and reduced labor requirements. Integrat- ing vertical ASRS utilizes the floor to ceiling height of an operation. Maximizing the full vertical height within your existing space can increase storage capacity while reducing floor space requirements. This allows a company to reallocate previously wasted space to other revenue generating activities.
From storing small to medium sized light weight goods, to heavier duty materials to individual SKUs, there is a vertical storage system built for a variety of storage needs. This guide will explain the differences between three vertical ASRS – the vertical lift module, vertical buffer module and vertical carousel module – as well as provide some considerations to make the best decision for your business.
Ultimately, no matter what solution you choose, you can expect a significant space savings, faster picking processes and reduced labor requirements.
