VNA – Very Narrow Aisle Storage
UNARCO creates storage solutions for sophisticated VNA, Very Narrow Aisle warehouse configurations which utilize AGVs, Automatic Guided Vehicles to place and retrieve pallets in very dense racking areas. The accuracy, speed and reach or these VNA fork trucks allows for smaller warehouse aisles and maximum use of space. VNA Systems reduce labor costs, product damage and picking errors.
UNARCO Pallet Racking is the heart of the VNA system providing tight tolerances and strong connections to help maintain every available inch of storage capacity. By eliminating the warehouse aisles, a VNA system can double pallet storage and high-reach fork trucks can utilize every inch of vertical warehouse space.
The flow of pallets is controlled by software to ensure the VNA system will render real-time control over the entire warehouse storage process. This allows for tighter inventory control, reporting and monitoring to maximize throughput of pallets through the system.
AGV units are portable and increase productivity because they move at a high rate of speed for pallet selection. The accuracy and speed of these vehicles when combined with the minimal amount of space needed for pallet placement and picking allows warehouse owners to service thousands more pallets in the same building footprint.
VNA solutions provide the same dense pallet storage as an ASRS System (Automated Storage and Retrieval System) with more flexibility. Any sophisticated AGV can take conventional storage and staging and create a productive flow of activity within the VNA System that will sometimes even use existing pallet rack.
Many VNA Systems are also called “dark systems” because there is limited lighting within the pallet rack area since workers are not present this space, and the AGVs do not require a lit system.
