Automating your Putaway and Storage processes ensures you can significantly increase warehouse capacity and throughput.

As we are independent, Breathe Technologies can design, configure and maintain a wide range of Putaway and Storage solutions tailored to your warehouse layout and the inventory that needs to be stored, retrieved and replenished.

Whether it’s warehouse automation technology or robotics, we’ll optimise your systems using the Putaway and Storage Module of our Warehouse Management Software and provide full lifecycle support through a range of specialist services.

Automated Putaway and Storage Systems
  • Enable frictionless transport of items
  • Maximise the use of space


  • Optimise retrieval and replenishment
  • Ensure accurate documentation


De-Palletiser Logistics

Breathe Technologies will deliver De-palletiser systems that automate the process of unloading materials from pallets and help dramatically speed up your stock replenishment activities.

As well as reducing time and cost, these automated storage systems also protect your employees’ wellbeing by removing a repetitive, strenuous physical process.

There are a wide range of de-palletisers, but common systems Breathe Technologies design and implement, are:

  • Pick and place de-palletisers These automate the removal of items from a pallet using grippers and an axis control system
  • Layer de-palletisers – This system removes a whole layer of a pallet before placing it onto a conveyor

Warehouse Putaway And Storage Software

Use this Warehouse Management Software module to:

  • Accelerate stock replenishment speed
  • Intelligently store materials based on custom defined factors (demand, perishability etc)
  • Increase capacity and optimise warehouse space
  • Boost throughput and reduce manual labour
  • Reduce error rates by ensuring stock is accurately putaway
  • Support accurate demand planning by integrating with order management systems

Warehouse Putaway And Storage Software Module

Increase capacity and throughput by optimising your Putaway and Storage process.

Our Putaway and Storage software module will enable frictionless transport of materials, optimise the use of space, calculate the best placement for retrieval and support accurate documentation.

Its flexibility means it can be configured to your precise warehouse layout and the inventory that needs to be stored and retrieved.

Advanced APIs ensure the module fully integrates with your Goods-in and Picking systems and RMS, to improve material flow.

Warehouse Automation Software


  • Control your storage and retrieval process and fully integrate it with your RMS
  • Control and co-ordinate systems such as conveyors, carousels, shuttles and movable racking
  • Flow live Putaway and Storage data across the warehouse
  • Integrate with Goods-In Putaway requests
  • Live inventory levels, stock location and status (identify quarantined items)
  • Data integration to order management systems for demand and forecast planning
  • Comprehensive real-time audit trail and transaction reconciliation
  • Real-time business intelligence reporting and analytics

Breathe Technologies has enabled us to double the number of orders we fulfil; that’s a 200% increase in productivity gains. The solution has dramatically improved our ability to scale up our business rapidly.

Automatic Storage and Retrieval

Breathe Technologies’ Automated Storage and Retrieval Systems (ASRS) combine the best warehouse automation hardware and software to accurately and efficiently move materials to where they are required, when they are required.

We’ll design and implement a custom Automated Storage and Retrieval System (ASRS) tailored to your precise requirements and can incorporate:

  • Unit-load ASRS storage and retrieval rack structure for large loads and pallets
  • Mini-load ASRS storage and retrieval rack structure for lighter loads
  • Vertical lift modules (VLMs) with automatic insertion/extraction of trays
  • Shuttles for handling trays, totes, trays and cartons
  • Horizontal carousels with bins that rotate around horizontal track containing smaller items
  • Vertical carousels for high density storage
  • 3D cubical storage grids or automation islands for ultra-high-density goods-to-person order picking

Light Goods Material Handling Conveyor Systems

Breathe Technologies can create conveyor systems that transport materials across your Putaway and Storage function and the wider warehouse.

We have a huge amount of experience designing, implementing and maintaining a diverse range of warehouse conveyor systems.

The SQP process that we have designed with this mechanisation is the only one in the industry that runs like this, ensuring we can operate with really high levels of efficiency and accuracy.
