Vertical storage systems is the general term for a wide range of vertical storage solutions; most often implies vertical carousels, vertical storage lifts and Vertical Lift Modules (VLMs). Essentially, what is common for all vertical storage systems is that they utilize a “Goods-To-Person” principal. The “Goods-To-Person” principal means that the automation solution presents that goods to be picked automatically; rather than the picker having to run around among the shelves to pick their order. Besides from the possibility to increase the picking efficiency, a vertical storage system offers the opporunity to safe a lot of space in your warehouse. Based on the unit and the type of goods to be stored it is estimated that a vertical carousel or vertical storage lift can save up to 85% of the floorspace conventional racking would require.
