Cyclone Carrier is an automated shuttle system for storage of small loads. The shuttle system is designed for applications where high throughput and excellent availability are essential, for example in Retail & E-commerce.

AutoStore is a unique and simple solution that uses robots and bins to quickly process small parts orders. It provides better use of available space than any other automated system thanks to its unique design that enables direct stacking of bins on top of each other and storage of multiple SKUs in a single bin. Over time, the system automatically learns which products have a higher rotation, storing them on the top layer to ensure faster picking times based on ABC Rule. AutoStore System is the system currently being applied at Yusen Logistics in Singapore with more than 40,600 bins and 22 operating robots. With enthusiastic support and guidance from Mr. Goh Lek Chew, VILAS has had the opportunity to hand-ons the AutoStore system and have new and unprecedented experiences.
