Swisslog, Newport News, Va., developed the CycloneCarrier, a best-in-class shuttle system that offers an hourly throughput of up to 1,000 infeeds and outfeeds per aisle.

This dynamic storage and retrieval solution can handle a variety of cartons, trays and totes, and is dubbed the complete solution for light goods handling. And, it seamlessly integrates into efficient logistics proceses.

CycloneCarrier’s lift, conveyor and shuttle movements are controlled by CycloneBox software, which ensures that transport tasks are executed properly and monitors processes to guarantee optimized interaction between sub-systems.
