Flexible AutoStore concept secures clear competitive advantage for L-Shop-Team GmbH

(Offenau, October 2019) Ordered today and delivered tomorrow if possible: With an inventory of more than 150,000 different items and thousands of customer orders every day, such an approach requires perfectly coordinated intralogistics.

While AM-Automation was still installing the AutoStore system, the system proved its efficiency during the peak season. 33 AutoStore robots transported up to 800 storage containers per hour precisely to the desired picking workstation, and up to 1,500 customer orders per day could be processed virtually by return of post.
