Automated vertical storage of the parts department for the automotive industry

09/07/2019

Automotive dealership Parts Departments today are experiencing major changes in storing, distributing and selling parts. In order to meet these challenges, many dealers are taking advantage of automated vertical storage systems to substantially improve customer satisfaction and achieve higher overall profit margins from both their Parts and Service Departments.
