Powered by robots, our Automated Storage and Retrieval System (ASRS) ensures that your supply chain is always ready to scale with your customers’ demands.

An AutoStore ASRS system stores inventory in bins that stack on top of one another creating columns. The inventory within these bins is moved by robots. These robots are small carts with wheels that glide across the top of the aluminum grid and have an elevator-type mechanism that digs out the necessary bins. The robots take the bins needed to create the orders and bring them to a port. The person at the port is presented with one bin at a time and told which item(s) to take out to complete the order.
