BELTON, Missouri– Kuecker Logistics has joined the Robotic Industries Association and will be one of five AutoStore distributors in the United States.

AutoStore is a robot technology company that invented and pioneers Cube Storage Automation. AutoStore reduces the warehouse footprint by 75 per cent when compared to conventional storage space with their honeycomb systems that reduce the need for walkways and shelves. AutoStore grids can be designed in any shape, around any obstacle – all they need is a flat floor. It offers the highest density ratio of any goods-to-person system.

This global company has more than 300 systems in 28 countries and serves a wide range of industries. AutoStore is headquartered in Nedre Vats, Norway, with offices in the US, UK, France, and Germany.

“It is exciting to see the growth in North America and we are very excited to expand our partner portfolio to include Kuecker Logistics Group. Each distributor is unique and brings something different to the client,” said Paul Roy, AutoStore’s managing director – North America.
