Swisslog, a leading global provider of automated intralogistics technologies, announced it has completed 300 AutoStore projects in over 26 countries worldwide, featuring a total of more than 7 million storage bins and using no less than 10,000 robots.
Using robots and bins to quickly process small parts orders, AutoStore provides better use of available space than any other automated system. Its unique design enables direct stacking of bins on top of each other and the storage of multiple SKUs in a single bin. The system naturally learns which products have a higher rotation, storing them on top layers to ensure faster picking times.
The 300 AutoStore projects to date range across three main categories: micro-fulfillment centers (MFC), stand-alone projects and large, complex, fully integrated solutions.
Growing in popularity, micro-fulfillment centers typically repurpose existing facilities, such as a retail store. They offer an enhanced customer experience and can normally be turned around in as little as six months. Recent Swisslog micro-fulfillment center projects include installations for SKUtopia, Australia, Peapod, and HEB, both based in the U.S. Among stand-alone AutoStore solutions completed by Swisslog are projects for TTV, Germany; Bio Partner, Switzerland; Stihl, Spain; and RoboStores, UAE.
