Channel Storage System & Automated Guided Vehicles

Lean processes and integrated software expertise for greater efficiency in the flow of goods


A Scalable System Solution for Resource and Space Optimized Pallet Handling

SSI Orbiter® in combination with AGVs: Simplifying processes, optimizing costs and helping compensate for the ongoing labor shortage

The requirements for intralogistics are changing rapidly. Companies therefore need highly flexible and efficient storage and transport systems that are scalable with regard to growing order numbers as well as new process and customer specifications. SSI SCHAEFER offers a solution in the form of an intelligent combination of space-saving pallet channel storage with an SSI Orbiter channel shuttle and automated guided vehicles (AGV). In parallel, the system guarantees 24/7 availability of goods, helping compensate for the ongoing labor shortage. Once installed, existing solutions can be gradually expanded if necessary.

The solution

Space-saving pallet channel storage in combination with automated guided vehicles

Your Challenges

Identifying potentials for improvement and optimizing your pallet handling:

  • Shortage of specialists
    Lack of skilled personnel to meet increasing requirements and cover multi-shift-operation.

  • Competitiveness jeopardized
    Complex, manual warehouse processes can no longer cope with the ongoing time and cost pressure.

  • Expansion of existing warehouse
    Storage area cannot be expanded due to structural conditions.

  • Time limitations
    Manual order processing can hardly be planned and controlled, and deadline commitments are becoming increasingly difficult to meet.

  • Insufficient efficiency
    Manual picking is error-intensive, associated with long walking distances and generates massive additional effort.

  • Inefficient material flows
    Material buffers block valuable storage space, the lack of space increases and ensures unproductive work processes.
