The future of storage is vertical. Automated storage and retrieval solutions allow businesses to utilize the height of their spaces, creating a higher storage density. According to the McMurray Stern blog, vertical storage solutions are essential because they “can double or triple the amount of storage space available without moving locations or changing your current layout”. With the help of verticle life modules (VLMs) and lift & runs, businesses do not even need to lift a finger to retrieve items from their vertical storage solutions, taking businesses to new heights while also improving accuracy and speed.
While many companies are looking to automate their warehouses, it takes a lot of planning to make it possible. McMurray Stern is there for companies looking to make the switch, and helps businesses evaluate the four main factors that go into an automated warehouse: space, accuracy, labor, and throughput. McMurray Stern ensures that it will help companies find the best solutions for the space available, all while improving business.
There are many hidden advantages for choosing to go automated. For one, automated warehouses create better living conditions for employees. The digital transformation almost eliminates any danger that comes with a warehouse job like lifting heavy machinery or handling dangerous chemicals. Not only that, but businesses are able to keep up with the increase in demand that has come as an effect of the Covid-19 pandemic. Automated warehouses allow for companies to create a faster, more accurate way to handle customer demands.
