Our Lightest, Most Scalable Grid for Unmatched Cubic Storage Capacity and System Efficiency.

Customer demand, efficient space utilization, rising real estate costs, inventory security, and insurance premiums. All are key factors in selecting a cost-effective storage solution that scales with any fulfillment operation.

Our tall grid yields 33-51% more vertical storage capacity per floor than the leading alternative cubic ASRS. Stackable to 21 bins high (7.6m) in a 12m warehouse, you can maximize your vertical space to store more inventory (within different temperature zones), and reduce (or better leverage) your footprint and fixed costs.

Its modular construction means it can quickly and easily be installed into almost any greenfield or brownfield facility, of any size or shape; even on multiple stories or in seismic regions, with bin lifts able to connect the grid across floors.

A unique double-track layout supports our patented single-cell robot design to maximize routing efficiency and productivity. The new, ultra-lightweight robot frame allows for a lower-cost grid design and minimizes long-term structural wear and tear.

Bin containment within the grid provides outstanding security - key for high-value or hazardous items. In conjunction with our new metal bins, our grid offers a revolutionary new global standard on fire risk containment - improving storage density and lowering infrastructure and insurance costs.


Key Features

The grid sits at the heart of the Ocado Storage and Retrieval System (OSRS). It's a light, flexible, modular structure, assembled in as little as two weeks and designed to maximize and secure your inventory storage within densely stacked bins.

Frequently Asked Questions

Common questions about the Ocado Storage and Retrieval System (OSRS) grid.
How tall can the grid be? The Ocado Storage and Retrieval System (OSRS) can be constructed to a maximum height of 21 bins (7.6m). 
Are there any restrictions regarding the size of a grid? Grids are designed in multiples of 4x4 squares, resulting in minimum dimensions of 2.8m (X) x 3.1m (Y), or 16 cells. Height can range from a single bin up to 21 high, provided that the warehouse has a minimum roof height of 12 meters or higher. We limit grid heights to a maximum of 21 bins to maintain optimal efficiency.
How is the grid expanded? The OSRS grid is modular by design, so can be easily expanded simply by adding more grid infrastructure.
In what environments can a grid be installed? The OSRS grid is capable of operating in a wide range of temperature environments, from -10°C to +50°C. This means it can be installed and function effectively in various temperature regimes, including ambient, chilled, and frozen settings.
Can the grid be installed into multi-level facilities? Yes, the Grid's modular design allows for quick and easy installation in almost any greenfield or brownfield facility, regardless of size, shape, or multiple stories, including seismic regions. Bin lifts can connect the grid across floors.
Are there any floor requirements necessary for a grid to be installed? Yes, the floor slab must be capable of handling area and point loads, and be constructed from concrete to TR34 FM4. The slab should be level to +/- 25mm.
Do I need to remove any pillars in my warehouse before installing the grid? The Ocado Storage and Retrieval System (OSRS) grid fits to any size or shape of building and can be easily configured, built and expanded around pre-existing pillars in your warehouse.
Is there anything you cannot store in the grid? This is largely a size issue. Naturally, items that do not fit within our plastic or metal bins cannot be stored within the grid. However, Chuck AMR can be used in conjunction with the OSRS solution to move/pick bigger items.
