Modular Goods to Person

Configuration options range from one to eight aisles of Dematic Multishuttle® storage, equipped with one to four ergonomic multi-function workstations, plus a range of integrated take-away conveyors and sorting technologies.

Small Footprint = Space Savings = Lower Cost of Operation 

Our patented inter-aisle transfer capability eliminates the need for the elaborate conveyor systems required by typical goods-to-person solutions. Less conveyor means smaller footprint, lower capital investment, and less maintenance. Inter-aisle transfer capability allows items to transfer between the Dematic Multishuttle racks for sequenced delivery to workstations. Items in the Dematic Multishuttle transfer between aisles for sequenced delivery to workstations, allowing any tote to be processed at any workstation. 

Reduced Processing Costs 

The reduced capital investment, reduced cycle time, and ease-of-use minimize order processing costs. In addition, the same workstations can be used for both picking and for decanting, further reducing the capital cost of your investment. 

Modular Design for Maximum Flexibility 

The Dematic Goods-to-Person Picking solution allows you to grow and expand as needed. Storage aisles and workstations can be added or removed to meet current demand.
