Today’s warehouses and distribution centres face a lot of challenges: increasing labour costs, less available space and frequent small orders with short delivery times. It’s a constant search for solutions that reduce operational costs, generate higher productivity, optimise space utilisation and enable high service levels. Vanderlande Industries is a leading supplier of automated warehouses and distribution centres, with a track record of over 1,000 satisfied customers in a wide range of industries. At IMHX we can not only tell you about our solutions and our satisfied customers, but we show you our track record and proven technology, like the Microshuttle and PICK@EASE.

Key technology

Automated storage and retrieval systems (AS/RS) are a key technology in modern warehouse logistics, and are beneficial in a range of warehouse processes: bulk storage, order picking and order consolidation. AS/RS systems enable storage density to be increased by up to 60%. Vanderlande Industries offers the QUICKSTORE range of AS/RS systems. The QUICKSTORE range includes various miniloads, the HDS shuttle system and the Microshuttle. QUICKSTORE AS/RS systems can be equipped with many different load handling devices. QUICKSTORE AS/RS systems are developed and manufactured by Beewen, a Vanderlande Industries company which is one of the leading European suppliers of AS/RS systems.

Efficient and accurate order picking

Order picking accounts for up to 60% of warehouse costs. Processing customer orders quickly and accurately also has a direct impact on customer satisfaction. Automated order picking systems can increase your productivity up to 1,000 lines per man-hour, improve your picking accuracy up to 99.99% and enable you to deliver higher customer service levels. Selecting the best order picking system for your business depends on the characteristics of your operation and products. We offer a broad range of order picking systems for loose products, cases and pallets, including zone picking systems, goods-to-man systems and batch picking systems, right up to fully automated case picking and tote picking systems.

Ergonomic solutions

Our customers want to offer their employees an attractive working environment while at the same time achieving high productivity and short learning curves. Vanderlande Industries is aware that workstation design is a critical success factor to achieve high employee engagement. That’s why we invented the @EASE workstation range: its proven ergonomics enable operators to maintain high productivity for sustained working periods.
