Automation for Dairy Warehouses

Swisslog’s automated warehousing systems for the dairy industry help manufacturers, distributors and retailers to efficiently store and distribute dairy products to meet customer demand and maximize tight sales windows.


Dairy products are inherently demanding. Not only do they require a continuously chilled environment, but they also have short shelf lives and government-mandated requirements. Additionally, consumer demand for a more diverse product selection has led to an ever-increasing number of SKUs – forcing retailers to place just-in-time orders for smaller quantities and manufacturers to handle most of the storage.

To embrace these supply chain challenges, dairy warehouses are streamlining automation with Swisslog. Our automated warehousing systems improve throughput and accommodate larger quantities of SKUs and smaller order sizes – all while ensuring the uninterrupted cooling of products. Most importantly, our dairy warehouse systems are cost-efficient, flexible and future-proof. 

  • Accurately and efficiently fulfill frequent just-in-time orders for smaller quantities of a larger number of SKUs
  • Safely store products in a chilled environment
  • Meet government food safety requirements
