An AS/RS system, which stands for Automated Storage and Retrieval System, is a computer-controlled system used in warehouses and distribution centers to automatically store and retrieve items from storage locations. These systems optimize storage capacity and density by utilizing available footprint and vertical space, and are designed to increase efficiency and accuracy in inventory management and order fulfillment processes.
Offering several advantages like increased efficiency, space optimization, improved inventory, and enhanced security, AS/RS systems are widely used in industries where high-density storage and efficient order picking are essential. Because of its highly automated workflows, AS/RS systems are ideal candidates to include RightPick systems as their picking counterparts, leading to a completely automated workflow from storage to picking and placing.
