As business and customer demands increase, many companies find themselves struggling with the serious challenge of maximizing their current warehouse space. Fortunately, the best solution doesn’t always mean moving to a new facility or an expensive remodel; going vertical can be the most effective way to optimize your existing floor area. The key to making it happen? The addition of an Autoquip Vertical Reciprocating Conveyor (VRC)!
VRCs (or freight lifts) are specialized lift systems designed to move cargo, equipment, and supplies between different levels in a warehouse or manufacturing plant efficiently and safely. Available in various designs and configurations, they can be customized to support your team’s unique workflow.
These economical and reliable lifts enable maximum efficiency by accessing unused overhead space while occupying a relatively small footprint. Let’s investigate how VRCs can help you maximize the space in your warehouse.
When you consider the expenses associated with maintaining, insuring, and operating a warehouse, the last thing you want to do is waste space. Going vertical with a VRC effectively increases your warehouse’s storage capacity, enabling you to manage more inventory within your existing area.
The team at Autoquip brings decades of lift design and customization knowledge to every project. We’ll work with you to understand your application needs, specific goals, and facility dimensions to create a VRC that works in your environment. Whether your space is narrow, wide, or unusually shaped, our engineers and designers can build a solution that integrates seamlessly into your operation.
In addition to optimizing space, VRCs streamline processes and create operational efficiencies. When you can move materials easily, quickly, and safely, you can reduce manual labor hours and the risk of accidents. An Autoquip VRC translates into fewer bottlenecks and delays making your operation more productive overall.
Integration & Control
Concerned about your existing infrastructure? We understand! Your new VRC doesn’t have to operate in isolation! We can integrate one or more VRCs with your legacy equipment.
We also offer an extensive line of control options that provide the safety and operational features you’re looking for. And each Autoquip VRC is equipped with our intelligent control system, AQ Connect. This cloud-based solution brings advanced programmable features and real-time monitoring and communications that convert your warehouse into an interconnected network. Yes, we’re using the power of technology to upgrade and redefine lift performance!
VRCs have become a mainstay in the warehousing and logistics industries. They continue to demonstrate value by eliminating the need for costly renovations or relocations and reducing labor costs associated with traditional material handling methods. And thanks to their durability and low-maintenance requirements, you’ll save money year-over-year.
Get The Vertical Advantage
Going vertical is a smart decision whether your operation is constrained due to cost considerations, your building’s structural design, lease restrictions, or you’re concerned about sustainability. Overhead space is valuable real estate that often goes untapped. Let the experts at Autoquip show you how to capitalize on every square foot of your warehouse with a custom hydraulic or mechanical VRC!
