Axiom GB Ltd manufactures in the UK to our own designs.

Logistics Software

Axiom supplies the complete automation.

From the earliest projects, Axiom has supplied the complete turnkey package of hardware, control and software from internal resources, not having to rely on third-party contractors.

Effective logistics software is fundamental to the success of any warehouse automation project. In our experience, warehouses are organic; they are living things, evolving to meet the challenges thrown down by daily business. Problems faced by the warehouse operations team can be exacerbated by poorly designed and implemented software systems.

Any modern installation has to be capable of interfacing with many sources of data and have the ability to both import and export data and reports as required.
