Swisslog Announces Technology Alliance with TotalTrax

 
January 22, 2013, Newport News, VA

Swisslog is pleased to announce it has established a technology alliance with TotalTrax, Inc. (TotalTrax)  .


Swisslog finds the TotalTrax technology exciting and will explore how this technology can expand its solution portfolio within the Retail and Food & Beverage markets.

Swisslog has established a successful track record integrating fork truck solutions with software into automation projects.  We see this as a further expansion of our technology offering as both a stand-alone solution to improve existing operations or as a further enhancement for more integrated systems.

Comments Markus Schmidt, Senior Vice President for Swisslog North America, “Lengthy payback periods often hinder the approval of capital intense, highly automated solution projects, especially when upgrading existing facilities. we see significant areas where TotalTrax technology, tightly coupled with our other solutions, will enhance the benefits of our proposals and increase the overall ROI”.
