Benefits of Semi Automated Warehouse Systems

A semi automated storage system can offer a number of benefits to warehouse operations including:

  • Intergration with existing Warehouse Management Systems
  • Can save up to 70% of existing floor space
  • Proven to improve efficiency when picking by up to 70%, with the rate of picking errors also significantly reduced
  • Forklifts do not need to enter aisles within pallet shuttle systems, significantly reducing the risk of damage to racking and forklifts
  • Pallet shuttle systems can be used at all temperatures, making them ideal in any operation including cold storage
  • High density storage improves warehouse space usage

Full Automation vs. Semi Automation?

The rise of robotics and automation in the warehouse has made full automation vs. semi automation a hotly debated topic, with both options offering different benefits.

Whilst full automation allows for reduced staff requirements, improved efficiency and a reduction in human error, it requires huge initial investment which is not feasible for most warehouse operations.

In contrast, semi automation still requires operatives, but demands a signficiantly lower price tag and can help improve staff efficiency and maximise space in the warehouse - offering a faster ROI.

For many warehouses, full automation is something for the distant future and thus they will favour the manual methods that have always worked for them, with some using semi-automated systems to enhance the efficiency of their workforce.
