Westfalia's Automated Self Storage Systems

Westfalia’s Automated Self Storage Systems provide convenient, high-density storage with maximum security for everyday valuables.  These ultra-secure storage systems are monitored 24/7/365 with no human access required, providing the customer ease-of-mind when storing their treasures. Using an Automated Storage and Retrieval System (AS/RS), the tenant's storage module is delivered quickly and quietly to the loading area without requiring entrance to the building.  Tenants can even call ahead to have their module ready and waiting for them when they arrive to the facility.

Westfalia’s in-house team of engineers customize each system to fit any building’s shape; size and layout ensuring all fire and building codes are met. Westfalia’s Warehouse Management System/Warehouse Control System (WMS/WCS), Savanna.NET®, controls the functionality of the automated system. The WMS client is a user-friendly application providing individual container tracking, reporting of all module movements, and also ties directly into the billing system.
