Cirrus Tech has spent over 20 years successfully implementing case picking systems from directed/voice picking to fully automated case picking systems where layers of product are placed in the system, and they are not touched until a fully built pallet is ready to be put on the truck.

For distributors with a 9+ million case volume size, The Cirrus Automated Case Picking System is a perfect fit. This solution includes a pick module to pick mid-volume to lower-volume SKUs, a high-speed picking area to pick layers of highvolume products and palletizer(s) to automatically palletize the finished pallet of orders. This system eliminates the need to pick orders conventionally in a pick path and automates the entire picking process. As with all of our solutions, each system is built for each client’s warehouse/distribution center and all designs are based off of Cirrus’ extensive evaluation of the client’s SKU profile and order data.


• 100% picking and placing product on conveyor with no conventional pick path picking
• Multi-level pick modules with mezzanines, conveyor, case flow, and full pallet picks
• High-volume case picks are picked in tiers and placed either by layer picker or manually onto conveyor
• Product is picked for an order and merged onto conveyor where the product is automatically palletized by an automated palletizer
• Each finished pallet of orders is automatically conveyed to an automated stretch wrapping machine, the pallet is then picked up to be either stagged or live loaded onto the truck
• Ability to handle thousands of SKUs efficiently with the flexibility for SKU growth
• Reduction in labor and hardware costs by reducing turnover, employees, and overtime
• Easier, safer, and healthier vs. manual picking
• Integrated with layer picking to efficiently pick high-volume SKUs onto the conveyor
• Efficient replenishment process with closer proximity to back stock locations
• Greater picking accuracy through monitor displays & automated system feedback
• Fully integrated with your RAS
• 2-5 year ROI

By choosing “The Crane” ASRS System from Cirrus Tech, we have gained efficiencies through our entire warehouse; how we receive, rotate and shuffle back stock, cycle count, pick and replenish pick locations.  The real surprise was the efficiencies gained on the load building side. Cirrus Tech’s “Crane,” Cirrus WMS and Cirrus Directed Picking have helped us in all areas of the warehouse.

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.

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.

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.

The Crane System is the right fit for our operation. We will be able to build the expansion, place The Crane System inside of it and maximize the clear height to go 5 pallets high in the system. Because of the additional space savings, we will be able to absorb another operation into our existing building and still have optimal room for future growth. Cirrus is the industry leader in Crane System implementations in the beverage industry and we look forward to our partnership for years to come.

With Cirrus Tech's HLA approach to automation, our company is able to take advantage the best automation for our environment today (The Cirrus Tech Crane System) while giving us a vision and the ability to add components down the road that will provide our warehouse with a nearly fully automated solution. It is exciting to have a road map to full automation that we can grow into over time.
