Automated Storage And Retrieval

Storing and retrieving inventory can be one of the most time-consuming processes in a warehouse or distribution center, especially if you have workers looking for the inventory they need and retrieving it by hand. By automating these systems, you can save time, money and valuable warehouse space. It also helps improve safety and reduces human error. Automated storage and retrieval (AS/RS) have become more popular in a variety of industries as technology advances and becomes more affordable.

Advantages of AS/RS

There’s a reason more companies of all sizes are beginning to automate their warehouse and distribution systems. The right technology can streamline the entire process from the time new inventory arrives to the time you ship it out. Automated storage and retrieval allows you to:

  • Save money on labor costs
  • Reduce the risk of workplace accidents
  • Allow product to move more efficiently through your warehouse
  • Reduce inventory and human errors
  • Make better use of your storage space

Most automated systems work with software that allows workers to easily choose and access the items they need. Choosing the right software also allows you to organize and track inventory efficiently with fewer errors, including important information like order times, expiration dates and compliance with industry regulations.
