Warehouses Runner is dedicated to

Thanks to its modular structure, Runner has been chosen by the most complex logistic centers in Italy. The system’s level of maturity is recognized by several partners experts in various aspects of the automation industry. Runner works 100% independently from the hardware of the structure and it never limits the client in their choices. It’s easily integrable with most ERP systems and it’s often used on pre-existing structures, on a phase of logic refurnishment.

The extreme variety of worldwide installations brought Runner to consolidate a few specific best practices according to the commodity sector it’s applied to, whether it’s Food & Beverage, Industry, Manufacture, Pharmaceutical, Logistics for third parties, Fashion, E-commerce.
Finally, Runner offers a series of field simulators, allowing our Research & Development team to test it on the most common structure situations. This permits a smooth and sure start, which is particularly important when working on revamping cases, which are often postponed because of the potential risks of a production stop.
