Optimizing space and labor for order picking applications is vital to any organizations success and profitability. This is why Sapient Automation’s complete line of vertical automated storage and retrieval systems are ideal in saving up to 85% of otherwise wasted floor space and 2/3 current labor requirements… not to mention increasing accuracy with integrated pick to light systems to 99.99% levels.

The systems flexibility to grow, shrink and move makes Sapient Automation’s vertical storage solutions a logical choice in picking small and medium sized goods for B2B and B2C and multi-channel distribution models for e-commerce, spare parts, maintenance and repair operations (MRO), order fulfillment, work in process buffer storage, order consolidation, life science applications and many more.

Using Sapient Automation’s automated storage and retrieval carousels and Vertical Lift Modules can quickly and efficiently be implemented in existing operations looking to improve efficiencies. One area, work zone or module at a time can be automated in order to reduce or eliminate operational downtime.
