From the traditional high bay warehouse to innovative robot-based storage solutions. Swisslog offers you a wide range of traditional and advanced technologies for automated storage and retrieval of pallets and smaller goods, such as cartons or bins. These fully automated systems boost warehouse quality, flexibility and efficiency.
Are you looking for an effective automated storage and retrieval system to overcome your warehousing challenge?
Limited space, an awkward warehouse building, increasing inventory or turnover in unusual shapes or sizes can all make it difficult to find the right ASRS solution. Multiple factors need to be considered when choosing the right solution. Automated storage solutions need to be scalable while maximizing space and performance. Staying flexible enough to respond to changing market requirements is also essential, as when new products launch, demand increases and regulations change.
Space costs you money! Swisslog always finds the most effective solution with the best price-to-performance ratio, transparent processes, and the greatest flexibility. You can respond to changing business conditions at any time by adjusting capacities when you need to accommodate increasing throughput.
In the environment of robotics, digitalization and individualization, performance in mini load ASRS is more important than ever, especially in e-commerce, retail or multi-channel sectors. Choosing the right automation solution depends on several factors:
The CarryPick storage and order picking system adapts to changing customer demands
CarryPick is an innovative automated storage and picking system designed for multi-channel intralogistics. A swarm of mobile vehicles (KMP600), developed by Swisslog and KUKA, navigates via a grid to deliver mobile racks to workstations for picking and reducing the travel path for workers.
The workstations are safe and configurable to your requirements. They also reduce the picking error rate thanks to pick-by-light and pick pointer. Users benefit from an intuitive workstation interface making it easy to use and ensuring smooth processes.

Whether it’s an AGV, monorail or conveyor based system, we take the best from our technology portfolio to offer the most flexible and cost-effective solution for your business.
Swisslog has been implementing customized AGV solutions for more than 45 years. Automated guided vehicles are significantly more flexible than fixed installations, and are also demonstrably lower cost above a certain layout size.
Working with our AGV suppliers, we find the best automated guided vehicle solutions for your enterprise, whether it is a standard forklift, a side forklift, a counterbalanced forklift, or a straddle AGV. We implement all types of vehicle, whether using a conveyor table or a platform vehicle. We can also integrate different types of AGV into the same layout.
An AGV system is an efficient and flexible transport solution with many advantages:
Swisslog’s robot-based solutions combine KUKA robots and Swisslog’s intralogistics knowhow. They are designed to reduce operational costs and improve warehouse efficiency.
Customer requirements for goods diversity, individualization, freshness, and delivery speed are constantly growing. ItÂs no longer same day delivery, itÂs next hour delivery. Picking and palletizing make up to 60% of your warehouse operational costs, and are the most time consuming processes in your warehouse. Workers to do it are becoming harder to find nowadays too. Only a very high degree of automation and self-learning smart-data systems can meet todayÂs diverse and growing demands.
With ItemPiQ, item picking for e-commerce, retail and pharmaceuticals can be fulfilled rapidly and accurately. The robot cell is designed to handle repeated piece picking, error-free. The robot is operational 24/7 and can pick and place products from a source into a target bin or carton. This allows companies to better cover seasonal peaks such as Black Friday and the Holiday season. Thanks to the robot-based order picking, operating costs can be reduced in the long term and staff shortages overcome.
ItemPiQ’s intelligent vision system recognizes and picks a large variety of items. It identifies the grip points of unknown articles, greatly simplifying the learning process.
Thanks to its multi-function gripper, the robot can handle a wide variety of common products in retail, e-commerce and pharmaceutical industries weighing up to 1.5 kg. Depending on size, weight, product-to-robot system and storage method, ItemPiQ can pick up to 1,000 items per hour.What makes Swisslog’s ItemPiQ truly unique?
ACPaQ is universally applicable for fully automated order picking of mixed case pallets. Store-friendly pallets are automatically built in distribution centers using the combination of proven Swisslog technology, such as the CycloneCarrier light goods shuttle system, conveyor systems and high performance de-palletizing and palletizing robots from KUKA. It is configured using modules and is scalable for mid-size and large distribution centers handling up to 500,000 cases per day.
