What is a vertical storage lift?
A vertical storage lift is an automatic storage solution that stores small items compactly in height. The solution is space-saving, as the height of the warehouse is utilized, and the items take up less space.
The vertical storage lift contains shelves with compartments for the various items, which are driven at high speed to the opening of the automated lift when items are to be picked. The opening is located at an ergonomic working height, so the picking process is easy, fast, and convenient for the warehouse employees. The items-to-man principle means that internal transport is avoided, and process steps are minimized.
Warehouse management software for automated storage lifts
Vertical storage lifts are controlled by warehouse management software, which ensures that the right shelves are driven forward in the order in which the items are to be picked. The warehouse management system LOGIA has a management package that is specifically developed for warehouse storage lifts. The platform’s visual user interface guides the warehouse employee through the processes. LOGIA has full control over all items in the storage lifts and ensures that capacity and speed are utilized to the maximum.
