How ADAPTO Works

ADAPTO consists of a racking structure with an integrated shuttle track system, with multidirectional microshuttles transport product bins between storage locations in the rack and stations that can be used for picking and replenishment. A built in lift allows shuttles to move up and down between rack levels and to the available stations. 

Software controls shuttle traffic, maximizing throughput and minimizing order lead times. The user-friendly interface shows real-time data of the entire system, providing an overview of all every component.
