ADAPTO is a highly flexible storage, retrieval and transportation system. It provides unrivalled scalability and availability, and enables users to maximise customer service levels.

Scalability  and availability
ADAPTO makes optimal use of available  space in warehouses, while extending or adding aisles to increase storage capacity and the system remains operational. The throughput of an existing  ADAPTO can be further increased by adding microshuttles and/or lifts.

In addition, ADAPTO ensures easy access to products at all times. This is not affected by lift or shuttle unavailability due to the way in which each shuttle can reach every location in  the system.

Maintainability and sustainability
Maintenance platforms allow quick operator access to all shuttles and rack locations, enabling fast and safe troubleshooting. If operator intervention is required, the problem area is  isolated, affecting only a minor part of the system.
A multi-layer safety system allows operators to work safely inside ADAPTO, while the separate maintenance  workstation (where shuttles can drive to themselves) has been ergonomically designed for engineers. This helps to keep running costs and energy consumption  low.
