fast AS/RS storage solutions with motorized vertical carousels
An e-commerce cosmetics company had a warehouse which stored 10,000 different products from over 200 brands. They wanted to simplify their storage and retrieval process to facilitate their company’s growth. The company also wanted to speed up order picking, shorten delivery time, save storage space, and create more ergonomic workspaces for employees. With the space-saving benefits and accurate picking software of motorized vertical carousels, fast storage and retrieval for e-commerce companies is made easy and painless.

motorized vertical carousel solutions for fast storage and retrieval
The company installed six motorized vertical carousels driven by power pick inventory management software in their warehouse. The picking software automatically creates the fastest storage and retrieval solution for e-commerce companies. Because of the paternoster design of the motorized vertical carousels, items stored on carriers automatically take the shortest path to the access opening, which is placed at an ergonomic, waist-level height. Additional picking strategies, such as batch picking and pick-to-light systems, can further increase the speed and efficiency of the carousel system. Now, 5,000 to 6,000 order lines can be easily picked in one shift at the warehouse, a 150% increase in productivity.
The motorized vertical carousels also have build-in inventory management software for fast storage and retrieval. With this, the warehouse avoids lost inventory and prevents overstocks or shortages along with increasing picking accuracy. Because the carousels use overhead vertical storage space, the e-commerce company’s warehouse was able to occupy 60% less space than their previous storage method. The carousels were designed to the warehouse’s specific needs so they could save space even with their low ceiling height areas.
With the modular structure of the vertical carousels and their easy installation, the carousels can also be easily adapted to fulfill the needs of the company’s future growth. After implementing the motorized vertical carousels with inventory software for fast storage and retrieval, the e-commerce company is expecting their return on investment (ROI) in just 1-2 years.
