Medline, USA: Meeting Healthcare Demand with Swisslog Automation

In 2013, Medline Industries Inc., the largest privately held manufacturer and distributor of healthcare supplies in the United States, partnered with Swisslog to transform its supply chain and increase capacity. Working with Swisslog automation experts, Medline became the first company in the United States to deploy a Swisslog robot-based AutoStore system.


An investment in Innovation and Automation

That first installation in Libertyville, Illinois, utilized 47 AutoStore mobile robots moving 27,570 storage totes in and out of 37,750 storage locations. Today, Medline has partnered with Swisslog to implement AutoStore systems in 19 additional sites.

Each system configured and integrated by Swisslog experts and featuring a variety of advanced technology, including robotic arms and Swisslog’s CarryPick storage and order picking system, optimized by Swisslog’s SynQ software.


AutoStore is a space saving automated storage and picking system.
