Benefits :- Narrow Aisles =More Storage Space Automated storage and retrieval systems (AS/RS) are computer controlled systems with extreme accuracy operating in very narrow aisles. Because of the narrow aisles in an automated storage system, a typical 12' aisle can be reduced to a narrow 7' aisle. This creates 40% more space for warehouse storage rather than aisles.
As technology changes AS/RS systems move right along with it. New systems unload trailers at the dock and take it straight to the narrow aisles. Current systems require the use of virtually no manual labor.
