Vanderlande Industries took part in IMHX 2013 from March 19 until March 22nd, showing its equipment on a big television screen and on iPads, explaining to (potential) customers what Warehouse Automation can mean for all types of business. The Mircoshuttle created a stir with visitors and quite a few inquiries were made.
Vanderlande Industries promised visitors to show them 5 benefits of Warehouse Automation in just 5 minutes:
– reduce operational costs;
– optimise space utilization;
– improve accuracy;
– reduce throughput time;
– provide ergonomic working conditions for employees.
Constant search for solutions
As a leading supplier of automated warehouses and distribution centres and a track record of over 1.000 satisfied customers in a wide range of industries, Vanderlande Industries knows about today’s challenges that face warehouses and distribution centres. Increasing labour costs, less available space and frequent small orders with short delivery time make it necessary for them to constantly search for solutions.
Vanderlande Industries has been providing these solutions for many years and for well known customers like Next, Tesco, Onninen, Amazon, Würth and Urban Outfitters. Vanderlande’s reputation made many visitors come to the stand at IMHX, looking for solutions for their challenges.
Cost-effictive and energy-efficient
The Microshuttle, which is an extension to the QUICKSTORE range of shuttles, miniloads and load handling devices, especially raised a lot of interest. This is a cost-effective and energy-efficient solution for low- to medium-throughput applications in a broad range of industries. Scalability is one of the biggest advantages of this shuttle; as throughput requirements increase, the system can be expanded with additional shuttles.
Of course this was not the only solution Vanderlande Industries showed at IMHX. There was also a lot to see on the range of ergonomic workstations like the well known PICK@EASE (Vanderlande’s proven technology) and the sorting systems like the CROSSORTER 1500. Also Vanderlande had an example of its Bleuveyor on the stand. The Blueveyor is the next generation conveyor; pure and non toxic, a lean design with limited materials, ready for recyclability, reduced energy demand and efficient energy use. For it’s Blueveyor Vanderlande is Cradle to Cradle certified,
