AddverbMedius 400x275

August 2, 2022

Addverb Technologies, which provides automation solutions for warehouses and distribution centers, has announced the launch of Medius, a new multi-level shuttle (MLS) system. Medius is an automated and dynamic shuttle system that performs the function of storage and retrieval on multiple levels, and is aimed at companies that want to increase storage density or establish an automation operation that is modular and scalable. The system is based on goods-to-person principles, automated storage and retrieval systems (AS/RS) and carton shuttles to enable agile and ergonomic order-fulfillment processes.

Addverb said Medius can operate at seven levels (3.7 meters / 12 feet high), with the ability to add more aisles by combining multiple MLS systems. The system features a storage capacity of 255,000 crates, double-deep tote-picking, and the ability to travel horizontally and vertically with 35 to 40 double cycles per hour.

“The lines between traditional retail and e-commerce are becoming increasingly gray, which forces the need to engineer and empower warehouses with resilient and innovative technologies,” said Sriram Sridhar, chief revenue officer, Americas, at Addverb. “At Addverb, we are in constant pursuit of providing a range of technologies to balance throughput and storage capacity challenges for omnichannel retailers and provide customers with a partner they can trust to offer such solutions.”

Key features of Medius include:

  • Seamless integration with any warehouse execution system (WES) or warehouse management software (WMS);
  • High-SKU support that can cater to industries such as e-commerce, pharmaceutical, and FMCG;
  • Low maintenance that doesn’t disrupt other MLS operations;
  • Increased efficiency with high throughput and an ability to store and retrieve.

In addition to operating on Addverb’s own software integration solutions, Medius includes an automatic braking system and an IP24 rating, allowing for grocery warehouse and distribution center operations.

The new launch helps expand Addverb’s portfolio of fixed and flexible automation systems. Earlier this year, the company announced its expansion into North America and South America, as well as a number of new partnerships. For more details on Addverb and its offerings, visit its website here.
