AutoStore® Automated Central Supply System

AutoStore is a unique warehouse automation solution for the storage and retrieval of medical and surgical supplies, housekeeping supplies and small parts in low units of measure. This space-saving system enables hospital supply managers and consolidated service centers to optimize material movement efficiency, expediting order fulfillment to multiple locations within a hospital system.


A typical hospital distribution center contains thousands of static storage locations, requiring employees to walk the aisles, manually picking goods from multiple locations. These manual processes take time, are labor intensive, inefficient and can lead to costly picking errors. By automating these processes and bringing the goods to the picker, AutoStore decreases turnaround time, saves space, improves operating margins and increases throughput across your supply chain.

• Fully automates bin storage, retrieval and delivery, increasing picking speed by up to 50%1
• Decreases inventory storage footprint by an average of 60% -- utilizing all available space to maximize 
   storage capacity2
• Delivers a 90% improvement in picking error rates versus non-automated distribution centers2
