Storage (AS/RS)

Take a load off your plate with automated storage and retrieval (AS/RS). Labor scarcity, the rising cost of floor space and increasing consumer demands may well be issues of concern, but having the right storage system is the game changer. 

Vanderlande recognizes the importance of AS/RS in meeting the tough demands of any logistics operation. Our solutions will help you to maximize efficiency and productivity – and make optimal use of that precious floor space. 

Our range of AS/RS integrates seamlessly into existing operations and includes the ADAPTO and HDS shuttle systems. These systems can effortlessly handle totes, trays and cartons. And thanks to our experience and expertise, we can help you find the most appropriate solution. 

These have already been installed in more than 400 leading brands, including URBN, Asda and Zalando. 

What’s an AS/RS system?

An AS/RS consists of systems with built-in intelligence that move goods to and from several locations, and are used in warehouses where: 

  • a high volume of loads are going in and out 
  • the capacity is limited by space constraints 
  • no processing is necessary – just the storing and transport of goods 
  • and precision is important, because of the high value of stock.
