Automated warehouse and logistics systems

Turnkey total solutions for intralogistics

Thinking down to the last detail, then acting in a targeted manner. Unitechnik consistently implements this philosophy as a general contractor in intralogistics worldwide. The result: customized logistics systems that achieve a high level of efficiency through automation and system integration.

Unitechnik always considers intralogistics as a whole. In a guiding overall concept, we perfectly coordinate high-bay warehouses, transport systems, control technology, and warehouse management systems. Your decisive advantage: when selecting individual components, we provide manufacturer-independent advice. In this way, tailor-made logistics systems are created under the responsibility of an experienced general contractor. Our Logistics Consulting offers you independent consulting services. Together with you, we develop the best solution. In addition to complete planning according to the three-phase plan, we offer a compact check-up at a fixed price.

Autonomous subsystems, such as autonomous mobile robots (AMR), automated guided vehicles (AGVs), Exotec's Skypod system or picking robots, are playing an increasingly important role. Unitechnik integrates these systems and takes responsibility for the overall system. The UniWare warehouse management system provides the link between the individual autonomous subsystems and the rest of the material flow and thus forms the heart of the logistics centre.

A cooperative customer relationship, dedicated project management and personal support form the basis for the success of our logistics projects. In our concepts, we map your requirements in detail and think one step ahead. In this way, we show you what is technically possible and economically viable for your intralogistics. Our engineers and computer scientists draw on a wealth of experience in various industries with a wide range of different system solutions - and have been doing so for more than five decades.

Our expertise for tailored logistics systems includes:

  • System integration
  • Warehouse technique
  • Transport systems
  • Automation technique and electrical equipment
  • Warehouse management software
  • Retrofit / modernization
  • Energy efficiency
