However, the emergence of a proper noun "warehousing" has undergone a long history of evolution. As an upper stage of warehousing, "automated warehouse" is closely related to the rapid development of logistics and its research and development.
Automated warehouse from generation to now has gone through roughly five stages, both manual storage phase, mechanical storage phase, automated storage phase, integrated storage phase, intelligent storage phase.
In the 1950s, there was a three-dimensional warehouse in the United States that used a bridge-type stacking crane:
The end of the 1960s, the driver operation of the roadway stacker crane warehouse:
In 1963, the United States took the lead in using computer control technology in elevated warehouses to establish the first computer-controlled three-dimensional warehouse. Since then, the automated warehouse has developed rapidly in the developed industrialized countries of the EU and has formed a special discipline.
In the mid-1960s, Japan began building automated warehouse.

In the 1980s, the automated three-dimensional warehouses developed rapidly throughout the world and used almost Involves all industries.
In 1963, China's Ministry of Machinery developed the first bridge crane, in 1980 China's Ministry of Machinery developed the first computer-controlled automated three-dimensional warehouse. In the 21st century, automation pallet trucks, shelves and so on have been rapidly developed in our country. Automated warehouse first widely used in large-sized state-owned enterprises such as tobacco and medicine. After 2010, the automated warehouse has entered all walks of life in our country, in particular, Development period, making a lot of demand for logistics and distribution centers, prompting various e-commerce enterprises have set up their own logistics and distribution centers, from automated warehouse to the formal intelligence.
