Vertical Modules: The Smart Storage Solutions for Automotive Parts Departments

Modula’s vertical storage modules are doing more than just saving valuable floor space for storing automotive parts.

Automotive dealerships that have implemented automated vertical storage systems within their parts departments have significantly heightened their storage capacity, saving about \y 85% of valuable floor space compared to traditional static storage methods. They’ve also gained increased control of their inventory, improved picking accuracy, and significantly reduced the time required to transfer parts. As dealerships look to preserve revenue in the face of the pandemic, service departments are a key factor and need to run as efficiently as possible.

Automated vertical storage systems contribute to such strategic goals by helping operator work more productively. Vertical lift modules automatically deliver parts to the picker at an ergonomically correct height rather than having the picker go and locate the parts within long aisles of shelving and cabinets. Therefore, the walking time for parts retrieval is reduced by up to 70% when compared to dealerships that use static shelving.

In summary, parts departments within automotive dealerships are the perfect candidates for automated storage systems. Their benefits at a glance:

  • Recovery of floor space: Reducing existing parts storage areas by approximately 85%, while being able to store more parts, add more service bays, have a larger showroom, offices, or an area for accessories sales displays.
  • Increased operator productivity: Speedier processing of sales and service orders.
  • Improved picking and inventory accuracy: Achieving inventory accuracy rates up to 99.9% as well as while securing valuable items from unauthorized access.
