Automate your entire warehouse at once or phase it in over time

With Cirrus Tech’s Higher Levels of Automation Initiative (HLA), distributors will be able to automate their entire warehouse at once or choose to automate certain functions in the warehouse right away and phase future functionality in later. This allows you to maximize the return on investment (ROI) on the front end, while having a well thought out strategy for the future. This gives you the ability and flexibility to ensure the foundation is laid for seamlessly adding and integrating new automated components down the road… when your business demands it.

We’d like to understand your warehouse environment and discuss if warehouse automation would be a good fit to solve the challenges you face daily. Whether you need more space, are facing labor shortages, searching for a better way to organize your warehouse with the increasing # of SKUs, are looking for less picking, receiving, replenishing, layer picking and physical counting and less overtime, Cirrus Tech has the Right Blend of Automation and Common-Sense that best suits your warehouse needs.


For us to implement a turnkey automated solution it must first meet the right blend of Automation and Common Sense.  While all of our solutions offer have a number of advantages, we will never recommend a solution that does not make good business sense for our customers and perspective clients.

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.

Jeff Knight

Company Name : Cherokee Distributing Company
Designation : General Manager

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.
