From April 20 to 24, 2020, AutoStore will present the
future of retail at the Hannover Messe. To remain
competitive, retailers require a presence across multiple
channels – stores, online, social networking and mobile.
Consumers also are demanding more choices, and are more
willing to change the provider allegiance to get better
value and service. Same-day delivery and immediate
local-store pick-up are no longer perks for eCommerce
consumers, they are expectations. With AutoStore's
micro-fulfillment solution, retailers can operate an
extremely efficient eCommerce sales channel including 24/7
Click & Collect service in parallel to a customer-oriented
shop. In Hall 4 / booth A24 at the Hanover Fair, AutoStore
will present the flexibility and scalability of its
robot-operated container warehouse in order to cope with an
increasing number of articles and SKU’s as well as seasonal
peaks in online order processing.
Modular and Scalable Solutions with the highest density
in the market
Perfectly suited for consumer in-store micro-fulfillment is
, a modular, highly-automated eCommerce
fulfillment system that is compact enough to be placed
almost anywhere in-store, equipped to fulfill online orders
fast and efficiently.
Peter Bimmermann, Business Development Manager AutoStore
System GmbH, is convinced this year AutoSore’s appearance in
Hanover can be remembered as a gamechanger for the industry.
"With the expectation of same-day deliveries in eCommerce,
fast order fulfillment is essential to deliver on customer
expectations. Managing retails eCommerce fulfillment from
regional distribution centers cannot accommodate the demands
of today’s consumers, nor can it sustain cost efficiency.
The automatic micro-fulfillment solution from AutoStore
retailers can replace aisles with richer in-store
experiences. This will eventually change retail as we know
it. We are looking forward to present the AutoStore
solutions at Hannover Messe.”
AutoStore provides the highest density of any automated
storage and pick system. Modular in design, its
micro-fulfillment solution can easily be configured to fit
different store ceiling heights and obstacles.
Click-and-Collect 24/7 or Last-Mile Delivery options
The efficient design and functionality of AutoStore's
eCommerce micro-fulfillment pick-up points play a critical
role in maintaining high-volume throughput for output
workstations. Associates can consolidate eCommerce orders in
less than 10 minutes, and put them back in the system for
customers to collect at any time. And orders can be
retrieved from the system in just a few minutes. Customers
can decide their preferred option to collect pre-picked
orders, whether in-store, parking spot or home delivery.
Fail-saved robotics for maximum system availability
AutoStore consists of a three-dimensional aluminum grid
system of self-supporting bins that are moved to pick
stations by independently-operating robots, providing swift
and accurate movement of orders.
Each robot has two sets of wheels that enable it to move
along perpendicular axes. This makes it possible for all
robots to reach any position, and any bin on the grid
independently – virtually eliminating the possibility of
single-point system failure, providing near 100 percent
From Online to In-Store
eCommerce fulfillment presents a significant challenge for
retail stores AutoStore's technology and extensive use-case
experience is now being leveraged for extremely efficient
micro-fulfillment of online orders in-store. Essentially, we
have redefined the eCommerce in-store customer experience.
The AutoStore crew is looking forward to meet the media and
prospective customers to present them the future of retail.
