  • Autostore – The Smart Solution for Your Modern Small Parts Warehouse

    AutoStore offers you a powerful, flexible, and quickly scalable solution for the storage and picking of small parts. The system is fully integratable with SAP EWM and can be retrofitted into existing warehouses without major construction work. This allows you to expand your storage capacities on your existing warehouse floor with minimal effort by optimizing storage space.

    As a modular system, AutoStore is based on system containers stored in blocks and moved by robots along an aluminum structure called the Grid. The unique design of the AutoStore structure optimally utilizes available space: containers are stacked directly on top of each other, allowing for the storage of multiple items in a single container. Container retrieval and storage are automated by robots, significantly reducing error rates. Thanks to intelligent container rearrangement during order processing, products that are needed more frequently are stored higher up, further reducing order fulfillment times.

    The system is expandable and grows with your business volume. Overall, the AutoStore system offers you an efficient, space-saving, and flexible solution for storage and picking. It improves productivity, reduces operating costs, and increases customer satisfaction through faster and more accurate order fulfillment. Whether you want to introduce new robots, storage spaces, ports, or logistics processes, with AutoStore and the right scalable logistics software, you stay flexible.

  • Highest Performance with AutoStore Integration in SAP

    Connect AutoStore directly to your intralogistics software: we seamlessly integrate AutoStore into your SAP EWM. The direct integration without middleware allows for quick integration into existing systems and rapid commissioning of new systems. The reduction of technical interfaces achieved through this unification of your IT landscape allows for improved data evaluation and consequently higher efficiency in ongoing operations. Thanks to our solution, AutoStore can be integrated into your logistics processes in just a few days – depending on delivery time and assembly of the AutoStore system for new installations.

    All warehouse and picking processes are controlled directly from your SAP system. This close system and process integration gives you complete transparency and control over your warehouse operations in real-time. At the same time, the system is operated through a single interface: Your employee requests containers via SAP EWM warehouse tasks for storage, delivery, or production orders, and AutoStore optimizes the delivery to the picking ports. Experience optimized control of the AutoStore system with all detailed data from your SAP EWM system.
