What is the Advantage of a Vertical Lift?

Bunk beds are an efficient way to let two kids share a bedroom while maximizing floor (play) space. Bookshelves are an effective, vertical way to keep your favorite books without having them take over your house. Going vertical is just as valuable when it comes to managing your warehouse inventory.


A vertical lift system can transform a warehouse full of short pallet racks into a concise, tall system that can restore up to 90% of your warehouse floor space. This could allow you to increase your inventory or move to a smaller storage facility.


The key to these types of systems is automation. A vertical lift module (VLM) allows the inventory to be safely and easily accessed through sophisticated automation and a user-friendly retrieval terminal. The operator of the system can simply input commands and the machine will dispense the requested items directly to the operator.


Benefits of Vertical Lifts

  • Makes inventory fulfillment quicker and more precise.

  • Allows business owners to easily evaluate inventory.

  • Maximizes warehouse space by combining many aisles of shelving into one unit.

  • Utilizes visual aids (automatic laser pointer, alphanumeric LED bar or put-to-light) to help the operator easily request the proper items.

  • Allows payloads of up to 2,200 pounds per tray.


Vertical lifts can be customized to meet the unique needs of your business. The size of the unit, column design (single or multi-column), tray width and other configurations are possible with units manufactured by companies like Modula.
