In the cold supply chain, it is important to keep products in the proper climate controlled environment, reducing the possibility of product quality degeneration. The speed and reliability of high-density Automated Storage and Retrieval Systems (ASRS) allows pharmaceutical and food and beverage companies to successfully implement this strategy, thereby ensuring a safer supply chain. The ASRS employs First Expired, First Out (FEFO) inventory management by providing complete control over inventory. This prevents from holding products for too long, leading to product waste. An ASRS also enables companies to better utilize their existing space by storing more product within the same building footprint.
