Modern warehouses and distribution centers with automatic storage and conveyor technology systems implement MHE from multiple vendors. They also find that automation technology requires a substantial investment, which they are willing to make to:
However, a multi-vendor MHE infrastructure makes it virtually impossible to run the costly automation equipment as a unified system, much less optimize it. It also lacks end-to-end visibility of the automation chain.
Körber’s warehouse control system is vendor-agnostic and supports all material handling technologies. This creates a single point of data and communication amongst MHE, WCS and WMS, and provides centralized control and management. It also ensures continued material flow if individual devices fail. Capabilities include:
Seamless integration of virtually all automation technologies, including shuttle systems, high bay warehouses, automatic storage and retrieval systems (ASRS) and many others
Körber’s warehouse control solution has been available for decades – almost as long as automation has been employed in warehouses and distribution centers.
We have continuously evolved our WCS with unique functionality, to create a vendor-agnostic, best-of-breed software solution. Our experience extends beyond the software and includes implementation services to customize the solution to your environment. Our team will partner with your operators to help you unify the management of your automation systems and maximize its ROI.
