FlytWare for Very Narrow Aisles (VNAs)

Automatically count items stored in aisles as narrow as 5 feet and racks taller than 40 feet.

Why VNAs?

Advantages of VNAs

The compact layout of VNAs makes for a compelling storage configuration for warehouses that have limited space or are located in premium urban areas.

Space Optimization

Recommended for warehouses where space is at a premium.

Increase Storage Capacity

Effectively utilize rack space and maximize inventory capacity.

Agile Inventory

Store one-deep case reserve for faster e-commerce fulfillment.

Challenge

Challenges faced in VNAs

The fact that many warehouses are relocating to urban, densely populated areas, driven by e-commerce, is compelling warehouse inventory stakeholders to switch to VNAs for optimal space utilization. Same day delivery and accelerating supply chains are transforming the inventory storage configurations at large distribution centers, driven by automation technology.

Higher Racks

Racks that were traditionally 30 feet tall are being reconfigured to 40 feet or more.

Expensive Equipment

VNAs require expensive MHEs to operate in limited space.

Time-Consuming

Manual scans of a large number of SKUs are time-consuming.

Operator Training

Needs highly-trained personnel to handle the MHEs, even for inventory counts.

Why Autonomous Drones For Counting Inventory

Aerial inventory counts of one-deep pallet or case reserve in VNAs are now possible using a fleet of stable, lightweight drones.

Time-efficient

Save precious man-hours spent and MHE utilization by letting autonomous drones do the work.

Safe & Secure

Due to zero manual intervention, the risk of cycle counters getting injured in VNAs is minimized.

Reliable Navigation

Due to their compact nature, off-the-shelf drones can easily navigate inside very narrow aisles.

Viable Automation

Minimal capital expenditure, quick deployment, easy-to-use, and short payback periods.
