Automated Storage and Retrieval Systems (AS/RS) have been around since the late 1960’s and are often a solution for businesses looking to increase accuracy, keep labor costs down and stay (or become more) competitive.
TranSystems has planned, justified and designed many AS/RS facilities across multiple industries, including Food Retailers and Wholesalers, Beverage, Consumer Packaged Goods, Frozen Storage (public or retail) and 3PL. We’ve helped clients to:
►Increase accuracy – Sophisticated software has been developed to manage these systems that enables both suppliers and
end users to better manage the overall supply chain. The technology also provides the ability to reduce the footprint
attached to plants and allows for more space for increased production capability.
►Decrease labor costs - Shrinking labor forces, along with the advantages provided by automation to standardize processes
and delivery methods, assist with the justification of AS/RS Systems. In harsh climates like frozen storage, the technology
reduces the labor as well as the size of these often expensive facilities.
►Improved competitive standing - The pressures are strong, particularly for those already dealing with low margins and it’s
imperative that every possible advantage is explored in order to stay ahead of the competition. Manufacturers utilize the
technology to maintain strict control of inventory lots and dating, assuring optimal shelf life for the consumer and increasing
