CINCINNATI, OH—Intelligrated, a leading North American-based automated material handling solutions provider, announces the launch of the Intelligrated OLS shuttle system. Ideal for operations with high-turn inventory storage and short order cycle times, Intelligrated’s highly-efficient automated storage and retrieval system provides quick access to individual cartons, totes and trays in a minimal footprint for high-volume distribution, fulfillment and manufacturing environments.

The Intelligrated OLS shuttle system provides easy access to a variety of product types for goods-to-operator fulfillment, just-in-time inventory management, as well as product sequencing and buffering to support mixed-unit load, full-case and break-pack order fulfillment, order consolidation and route-based delivery.

The OLS offers the widest range of load handler options to handle a wide range of product sizes and types, including cases, totes and trays when needed.  The scalable system design expands to meet storage and throughput requirements through additional racking height or shuttles.

Intelligrated  designs, integrates, controls, installs and commissions each OLS system, providing 24X7 after-sales service and support through its nationwide network of local support centers, customer service Dashboard incident and project tracking database, and OnTimeParts catalog. Based on proven concepts that apply the right mix of automation, software and labor, Intelligrated OLS shuttle systems meet each operation’s unique requirements.
