“The future of storage is vertical. Automated storage and retrieval solutions allow businesses to utilize the height of their spaces, creating a higher storage density. According to the McMurray Stern blog, vertical storage solutions are essential because they “can double or triple the amount of storage space available without moving locations or changing your current layout”. With the help of verticle life modules (VLMs) and lift & runs, businesses do not even need to lift a finger to retrieve items from their vertical storage solutions, taking businesses to new heights while also improving accuracy and speed.
