Automated storage systems

An automated storage and retrieval system (ASRS or AS/RS) consists of a variety of computer-controlled systems for automatically placing and retrieving loads from defined storage locations. Automated storage systems are being designed specifically for the storage of different types of items. The systems operate according to the principle of "goods to man “. 

Automated storage and retrieval systems (AS/RS) are typically used in applications where: there is a very high volume of loads being moved into and out of storage; storage density is important because of space constraints; no value adding content is present in this process; accuracy is critical because of potential expensive damages to the load.

Rack lifts (cranes) are designed and carried out in accordance with the desired speed and altitude operation and nominal load. Such solutions can be used in all branches of industry and distribution (food, pharmaceutical, chemical, cold rooms, etc.).

AS/RS can be used with standard loads as well as nonstandard loads. Transport units can be Euro pallets, plastic boxes, tray etc.

In this segment, we successfully cooperated with the German company VIASTORE systems, which is one of the leaders in the European market.

AS/RS system cut expenses by minimizing the amount of unnecessary parts and products in storage, and improving organization of the contents of a warehouse. Due to automated processes, it also allows for more storage space due to high-density storage, narrower aisles, etc.

Automation reduces labor costs while lowering workforce requirements and increasing safety.

Enabling a seamless link to order processing and logistics management in order to pick, pack, and ship product out of the facility.

Tracking where products are stocked, which suppliers they come from, and the length of time they are stored. 


  • Primat Logistika is the first and so far the only Croatian company that has designed and built a fully automated warehouse.
