The Cirrus Tech Crane System is a high volume storage and replenishment system that addresses the need for more capacity and more efficiency in your warehouse or distribution center.
The Crane is an excellent alternative to building a new facility or to spending/building less of a new facility and provides today’s beverage distributors and suppliers with the reliability and flexibility needed to handle the ever-expanding portfolio of SKU’s.  With every Cirrus Tech Crane System implementation we layout the Crane system and the rest of the entire warehouse to ensure that you have the most optimal warehouse for receiving, storing, retrieving, replenishing, and picking.
Our Cirrus Warehouse Control System (WCS) software controls The Cirrus Tech Crane System and will allow the Crane System to auto receive, store, shuffle/code date rotation (FIFO Compliant), and replenish your highest volume SKU’s (50% to 90% of your total package SKU volume).


With our Cirrus Tech Crane System you get a customized, automated solution to fit your operation because we design our software and system around your warehouse environment and how you do business.  We will not implement an automated system or software solution into your warehouse unless it makes good business sense and will provide your business with a solid ROI.

Cirrus Tech designed the first ever Cirrus Tech Crane System for the beverage distribution industry for Eagle Distributing of Shreveport in Shreveport, LA.

As designers and planners, we worked closely with the Eagle Distributing of Shreveport team to breakthrough the barriers of standard designs to ultimately create an automated Crane System that would deliver higher productivity, provide better space utilization and greater economic justification. Cirrus Tech also provided the technical installation of PLC’s and WCS software to operate and control the Crane, picking software to pick the entire warehouse, and a Warehouse Management System to manage and control all the inventory in the warehouse.

The Cirrus Crane System will increase our available pallet storage significantly. When we take into account the organization and many efficiencies the system will bring, this will be a real game changer for us in our warehouse.

In terms of receiving, I don't have to carry a pallet 100 feet, 200 feet.  It's just 20 feet away to getting input into our Cirrus Tech Crane System and I can input between three and four trailers at a time.

With Cirrus Tech we will receive product and put it in a rack location - it's in the system with one touch.  The next time we touch it is for order building, and so we plan to take a minimum of four touches out of the process.  That's where the efficiency is.

By choosing “The Crane” ASRS System from Cirrus Tech, we will gain efficiencies through our entire warehouse; how we receive, rotate and shuffle back stock, cycle count and replenish pick locations. The real surprise will be the efficiencies gained on the load building side. Cirrus Tech’s “Crane” and voice solutions will help us in all areas of the warehouse.

The Cirrus Tech Crane System provided our company an opportunity to consolidate an entire warehouse (Norfolk, NE) into the existing warehouse here in Fremont, NE.  It will incorporate 5 years of growth while providing less than a 5 year ROI with the efficiencies of the system.

My picking with the Cirrus Tech Directed Picking solution is at least 3 times faster and more accurate than when our employees picked orders manually using a sheet of paper.

The Cirrus Tech Crane System not only saved us from doing a costly expansion, it also helped us organize our warehouse in a manner that put efficiencies in places that we would have never realized by building a new warehouse.

A major advantage of the Cirrus WMS is being able to know where all of the SKU’s are at any given time.  This is especially helpful during crunch times when that rarely requested item would otherwise have to be hunted down in the warehouse.  Now, the system instantaneously tells us where to find it.
