(CINCINNATI: March 17, 2014) Intelligrated® (, a leading North American-based automated material handling solutions provider, announces the launch of the Intelligrated OLS shuttle system. Ideal for operations with high-turn inventory storage and short order cycle times, Intelligrated's highly-efficient automated storage and retrieval system provides quick access to individual cartons, totes and trays in a minimal footprint for high-volume distribution, fulfillment and manufacturing environments.

The Intelligrated OLS shuttle system provides easy access to a variety of product types for goods-to-operator fulfillment, just-in-time inventory management, as well as product sequencing and buffering to support mixed-unit load, full-case and break-pack order fulfillment, order consolidation and route-based delivery.

The Intelligrated OLS offers the widest range of load handler options to handle a wide range of product sizes and types, including cases, totes and trays when needed. The scalable system design expands to meet storage and throughput requirements through additional racking height or shuttles.
