Automated vertical and horizontal warehouses: the right step towards automating your warehouse!

How does a Modula automated warehouse work?

Since 1987, the Modula automated vertical tray warehouse has optimised the warehouse logistics of every company in any industrial sector.

Modula is a specialist in design and construction of automated warehouses for intralogistics, to guarantee better quality storage and efficient, economical picking.

It all stems from the “goods-to-man” principle, when products go to the operator, not vice versa (as is still the case in warehouses with traditional shelving).

The Modula vertical warehouse simulates the movement of a lift. The operator uses the Copilot to call the goods to be picked up, the Modula knows which tray to find the various items in and delivers those trays directly to the bay, ready for pick-up.

Equipped with internal trays with a payload of up to 990 kg, the Modula vertical warehouse offers storage of spare parts, products, packs and crates, saving up to 90% of floor space and improving safety for items and operators.

Depending on the size and structure of the warehouse, different product types are available: automated vertical warehouses and automated horizontal storage solutions.

No further need for ladders, mezzanines, stools or trolleys! Instead, operators can call up the goods they need with just one click, then receive them at their fingertips. No more stress, fatigue or incorrect postures. No more mistakes and no more clutter.
