Warehouse planning

Optimal planning of storage systems

The storage of goods represents an important part of the supply process within a company. Due to the sometimes widely varying applications and the different nature of the stored goods, there are numerous forms of storage systems with different degrees of automation.

Highly automated systems are mostly used in areas with high required handling rates. They require high investments, but can pay for themselves through lower personnel costs as well as a reduced space requirement. Manually operated storage systems are characterized by their flexibility and scalability. As a result, they can cover a significantly larger requirement profile compared to automatic storage systems.

In warehouse system planning, decisions must be made against an often tight time and budget horizon. Choosing the wrong system or incorrectly dimensioning the bearing can subsequently lead to high costs or even the demolition of the supply process.

Which storage system is right for your business?

The determination of a suitable and ideal storage system for a company is associated with a very high effort due to the complexity and the high variety of storage technologies, operating devices and load carriers.
