What is a Vertical Carousel?

An automated storage system that utilizes vertical space to store inventory and supplies 

Vertical Carousels are constructed with a series of carriers attached in fixed locations to a chain drive which are sent in a vertical loop around a track in forward and reverse directions, similar to a Ferris wheel, as directed by the operator with the push of a button

Items are delivered quickly to the operator at an ergonomic level, saving time, reducing labor requirements, and the risk of injury
