A Warehouse Performance Revolution You Can’t Afford to Miss

Thursday, 13 May 2021 ( #1025 )
The arrival of automated warehouse technology has created a question for owners of traditional warehouse operations: how long they can afford to wait before they upgrade to an ultra-efficient, 21st century automated system. After all, a '4D taxi' automated warehouse - a specialisation of automation pacesetters Moffett Automated Storage - means anything less is causing wasted capacity, slower handling and more downtime in comparison.
And the improvements compared to traditional storage go well beyond increased storage and smarter handling: Automation vs Moffett Automated Storage: 1, Unlimited Scalability Total scalability can be achieved as a 4D taxi system can be easily expanded by adding more 4D taxis. This means an ultra-flexible warehouse you can grow in accordance with the growth of your business. Automation vs Moffett Automated Storage: 2, Uncompromised Selectivity Maximise your warehouse capabilities with Moffett Automated Storage as we give exceptional storage density combined with uninterrupted 24-hour access to every pallet adds up to the ultimate in selectivity. That's why Moffett Automated Storage delivers retrieval of the stock you need, every single time. APR racking vs Moffett Automated Storage: 3, A Black Box Warehouse Less energy use AND better temperature regulation can be achieved as no lights or human movement will be needed in a warehouse. Plus, a reduced door size compared to a conventional warehouse. For one client this has meant 150 pallets per hour, despite low temperature conditions, with no manual handling and outstanding cost efficiency.
APR racking vs Moffett Automated Storage: 4, Huge Capacity Improvements A 4D taxi system offers a 70% increase in storage capacity compared to a traditional warehouse, thanks to the efficiency of an automated layout vs traditional aisles. Simply put, automation and improved racking delivers better use of all available space. Automation vs Moffett Automated Storage: 5, An End to Downtime A specialist team in Moffett's HQ can control and drive your 4D systems, offering round-the-clock support access, reducing downtime to less than 1%. In the unlikely event of a taxi being non-operational 99% of stock is still available, compared to the high loss of stock availability if traditional machinery goes down. Why Moffett Automated Storage? Thanks to generations of warehouse, technology and engineering know-how, Moffett Automated Storage has become the renowned choice for innovative warehouse owners worldwide. The company has benefited from the Moffett family's vast experience of over 70 years of engineering in the supply chain and material handling industries (Moffett Mounty + Combilift) allowing a completely new and innovative storage solution to be brought to market and implemented effectively over the last 3 years.
