- Review of Volume Dive and Comparison with AutoStoreIntroduction I have been following the cube storage market for some time. It is remarkable how many variations of the original AutoStore concept have emerged in recent years, some with very interesting approaches that address AutoStore’s limitations. In this article, I would like to introduce and review another new entrant in the dynamic cube storage… Read more: Review of Volume Dive and Comparison with AutoStore

- Fire Safety Systems in WarehousesReflections on Oxygen Reduction Systems This week I had the pleasure of attending a small conference on fire safety in warehouses. The conference was hosted by Wagner Group GmbH of Hannover, Germany (not to be confused with the Russian organization of the same name, which also deals with fire, but with different technology and intent). Wagner is… Read more: Fire Safety Systems in Warehouses
- Goods-to-Robot Picking: What’s the Catch?Almost every time I talk to customers about large goods-to-person systems, the conversation eventually turns to robotic picking. So I thought I should summarize some of the key challenges of integrating robots into picking systems. And this time, I made a video out of it as well. You can find the transcript of the video… Read more: Goods-to-Robot Picking: What’s the Catch?
- On Using Totes vs. Original Cartons in Zone Picking Systems with Flow RacksWhen I talk to customers about zone picking systems, we often come to the question of whether they should fill their flow racks in the zone picking system with the products’ original cartons or with standardized plastic totes. There are good arguments for both, but I have the feeling that the arguments for using totes… Read more: On Using Totes vs. Original Cartons in Zone Picking Systems with Flow Racks
- Guest Appearance on Podcast Logistikkpodden by LISNorwegian logistics equipment supplier Lager & Industrisystemer (LIS, in German Lager- und Industriesysteme) runs a podcast called Logistikkpodden – Norway’s first (and probably still only) podcast dedicated to warehouse logistics. In the past, representatives from well-known companies have been guests, e.g. Ikea, Nille, Oda (formerly Kolonial.no), Bring and BliVakker…. Earlier this year, I was invited… Read more: Guest Appearance on Podcast Logistikkpodden by LIS
- Cube Storage Systems: Market Overview & ComparisonInspired by the success of AutoStore, a number of entrepreneurs and established vendors have developed their own variations of cube storage systems. In another article, I compared AutoStore to its competitor Jungheinrich PowerCube. At this point, AutoStore probably doesn’t have any serious competition in the cube storage space. While the AutoStore system isn’t “perfect” (with… Read more: Cube Storage Systems: Market Overview & Comparison
- Remote Work and the Underrated Concept of Organizational CultureLet us start with the conclusion: One of the primary responsibilities of executives is to shape and maintain the organizational culture. If they do not recognize this responsibility and act accordingly, the organization will fail. Permanently allowing full-time remote work makes it difficult, if not impossible, to build a healthy organizational culture. It was therefore… Read more: Remote Work and the Underrated Concept of Organizational Culture
- Warehouse Automation for 3PLsWhy Adoption is Slower Than you Might Expect Introduction We are moving more goods from warehouses to consumers than ever before. And the more e-com replaces brick-and-mortar, physical commerce, the more business is done in warehouses. Accordingly, logistics service providers (LSPs, or third-party logistics providers, 3PLs), which operate warehouses on behalf of retailers, have enjoyed… Read more: Warehouse Automation for 3PLs
- The Reasons we Automate Slow-movers FirstThere is a fundamental principle in warehouse automation. And yet, it seems to be poorly understood by many professionals, including logistics engineers, whose job it is to design automated warehouses. The principle is that you should generally aim to automate slow-moving products, not fast-moving products. This is true for most concepts, although there are exceptions.… Read more: The Reasons we Automate Slow-movers First
