How we can help with your intralogistics challenges
Turn-key integrated solutions you can be confident in
Our analytics capability allows us to determine the most suitable solution for your needs, following a structured approach. First, we develop an umbrella vision and determine the most efficient product design for each operation.
As a partner for integrated automated logistics solutions, we respect the specific character of each project and offer end-to-end automated solutions designed to fit your business.
Optimising your processes from inbound to outbound
Every operation is different, but typically, their processes can be split into a number of basic categories. We help you make each of these processes more efficient.
Any logistics and manufacturing operation starts with the reception of materials. Whether loaded on pallets or loose, the items will be registered and then distributed to other zones.
Quality controls, repacking and volumetric and photographic capture are just a few examples of the processes we can support at goods reception.
To locate the goods in the most efficient way possible, the process must share data with the goods reception phase and the order picking phase. Warehouses usually occupy the largest part of a logistics centre, for raw materials, finished products or general inventory.
Here, we can offer a wide variety of manual and automated solutions, customised according to quantity of items, order profile and warehousing requirements.
Picking usually constitutes the heart of a distribution centre. In a factory, the equivalent would be the kitting or spare parts area. Depending on the order profile and inventory, operations might involve automated or semi-automated discrete picking and batch picking.
Depending on the needs, high operational density and productivity or manual picking assisted by AGVs, we deliver the most efficient solution.
Packaging & shipping
Once the order is processed, it must be shipped to the customer. This usually entails packaging, consolidation, quality control and classification, before the goods are loaded on the means of transport.
This requires different technological solutions from high-speed and high-density sorters to simpler units, which we can help you with. The process might incorporate robotics, pallet wrappers and end-of-line management.
Constantly innovating to future-proof your business
Our offering includes some of the newest intralogistics technologies, designed to deliver real benefits and maximise operational efficiency and profitability:
We help you design the optimal picking solution for your operation, semi- or fully automated. We support:
Goods to person
Pick to voice
Pick to light
Put to belt
Vertical or horizontal carousels
Offering high availability and performance
Automated pallet warehouses enable high storage density and performance in operations that demand high availability.
Whether single-, double- or multi-depth, with stacker cranes or shuttle systems, self-supporting systems (SILO) or independent, our engineers study the profile of each operation to determine the ideal system.
Whatever the need for sorting products, when an order is prepared or during a logistics process, there are many solutions. As an integrator, we can offer sorters tailored to the profile of the operation – incorporating boxes, plastic trays or polybags, from fewer than 1,000 units per hour to more than 10,000, and from fewer than 5 sort exits to more than 100.
Sortation technology selection and design is critical to warehouse performance. Working with us, customers receive tailored support and recommendations that makes finding the right solution simple.
We design dynamic systems, combining roller paths, double or triple chains, rotary tables, elevators and more. Whether the system is simple or complex, it’s always supported with innovative technologies adapted to your operation.
For boxes or plastic buckets:
To transport from A to B, to accumulate, to classify, lift or lower, in combination with our WES, our roller or belt conveyors allow you to link logistics operations in an efficient and modular way.
Automating repetitive flows
Automated guided vehicles (AGVs) are ideal for repetitive flows. Our Autopilots can support pallet transport and storage in racking or on the floor. Together we will identify the flows where automation will add the most value and take you on your automation journey, step by step.
Metro Madrid saves 65% floor space with AutoStore solution from Toyota
Metro Madrid's logistics centre is located on the edge of the city in order to deliver parts to the more than 300 locations in the city centre as quickly as possible. Time and efficiency are crucial here. Metro Madrid was looking for a high-density storage solution with a view to expansion in the future. For the integration, they found a partner in Toyota Material Handling.
An AutoStore solution was installed at Metro Madrid’s micro-fulfilment centre. The design and delivery was done together with Bastian Solutions, a Toyota Advanced Logistics Company.
Our Warehouse Execution System (WES) comes with warehouse technology control software (WCS) and warehouse inventory management software (WMS).
WCS co-ordinates automated order processing, while WMS focuses on stock and employees: quantity and location of stock, restocking, order processing in different waves, the division of labour, and oversight of receipt and shipping work.
Software adapted to your needs
We implement the necessary layers or modules for an efficient, lean operation, whether you only need certain modules to connect to your own IT systems or you require a fully built central management system.
We support you long after installation
We understand the importance of a comprehensive, reliable technical after-sales service – and we are committed to supporting each customer in making our solutions really work for them.
The right service and finance package for you
Just like our integrated solutions, our after-sales service also keeps your business needs in mind. We offer detailed analysis of your situation and can recommend the best procedures, ranging from preventive maintenance to a full service package, as well as remote monitoring and financing options via Toyota.
We manufacture some products in-house, while others are developed through recognised suppliers. As a system integrator, we take a direct stake in our customers’ success, and are always optimising our offering based on feedback and data.
We offer one of the most advanced after-sales infrastructures in Europe, through which we support our customers in all categories: trucks, racking, services, and complete intralogistics systems. We offer complete service packages for our integrated solutions, including remote access and online support. We make a simple but firm commitment: one number for all service needs.
Absolutely not: automation can be scalable and is possible for companies of all sizes. Based on data analysis, our engineers routinely create a roadmap for automation that is tailored to small and medium-sized businesses, aiming to give them the resources they need for long-term growth and productivity.
