We can help you with warehouse automation, new construction and expansion planning.

Optimal planning of storage systems

The storage of goods is an integral part of the supply process within a company. Due to the sometimes strongly varying applications and the different nature of the stored goods, numerous forms of storage systems have varying degrees of automation.

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

When planning a warehouse system, decisions have to be made before an often tight time and budget horizon. Choosing the wrong system or incorrectly dimensioning the warehouse can lead to high costs or even disruption of the supply process.

Which storage system is right for your company?

The determination of a suitable and ideal storage system for a company is associated with a great deal of effort due to the complexity and the great variety of storage technologies, operating devices and load carriers. In addition, the sometimes very specific customer requirements, such as investment limits, performance requirements and the degree of automation, also play a decisive role in choosing the right storage system.
