Mini-load ASRS (Automated Storage and Retrieval System) is a type of automated storage and retrieval system that is commonly used in warehouses and distribution centers to efficiently store and retrieve smaller loads of goods. It consists of a series of racks, a crane or shuttle system, and a control system. The system is designed to optimize the use of space and maximize the efficiency of storage and retrieval operations.


There are several benefits of using Mini-load ASRS in a warehouse or distribution center, including:

Working Principle

Mini-load ASRS works by using a crane or shuttle system to retrieve and store goods. The crane or shuttle moves along a rail system, accessing each storage location and retrieving or storing goods as needed. The system is controlled by a computer, which coordinates the movement of the crane or shuttle and ensures that goods are stored and retrieved efficiently.


Mini-load ASRS is used in a variety of applications, including:

Mini-load ASRS is a highly efficient and effective way to store and retrieve goods in a warehouse or distribution center. By using automation to streamline the storage and retrieval process, companies can save time, money, and resources while improving accuracy and maximizing the use of available space. With its versatility and wide range of applications, Mini-load ASRS is an excellent choice for companies looking to optimize their logistics operations.


Mini-Load Shuttle ASRS system is a high throughput automated storage and retrieval system for bins, totes, and cartons. Mini-Load Shuttle ASRS systems are designed with faster performance and operational efficiency, resulting in higher productivity. Craftsman’s Crato, A single-level miniload shuttle system provides optimum space utilization with high throughput capabilities.
