Skypod System changes the rules of intralogistics

While offering equivalent performances to the best available automated order picking systems, Skypod is customizable and agile. What makes our system unique is its scalability to meet storage and flow requirements independently, as well as to keep pace with business growth, allowing the possibility of investment phasing that is unmatched on the market.

Without mechanization in the racks, the installation is very quick and it can save you up to a year of empty lease time. The Astar software which controls the fleet of robots uses the best of computer modeling and mathematics for fast order preparation with minimum resources.

Without waves or batches, you can be sure that the next order prepared is always the most urgent!
