Warehouse & Distribution

Warehouse automation is a key focus for both consumer-packaged goods companies, distributors and the grocery industry. Driven by SKU increases, rising labor costs and ergonomic concerns, the automation of warehousing will continue to see exponential growth and change. Hartness' warehouse automation team offers a variety of "mixed case picking" and palletizing solutions. In 2009, Hartness added Vertique, a global leader in "order picking" and mixed case palletizing, to its product portfolio.

The combination of an industry-leading robotic automation team and the acquisition of Vertique have made Hartness a proven leader in scalable, warehouse automation solutions. Hartness solutions not only maximize space utilization and increase order accuracy, but most importantly, provide opportunities for significant operational savings for both large and small distributors.

Hartness understands that automated case picking is not a one size fits all proposition. Our proven, scalable solutions offer varying levels of automation. This flexible approach offers affordable, customizable solutions that can be easily expanded as needs change. Our philosophy and its practical strategy allows for a wider variety of distributors to more easily meet ROI requirements. More than a decade of business case development experience ensures that Hartness and Vertique clients will invest in the correct level of automation based on business and financial considerations.
