Nesting U-Boat

Versacart Systems (booth # 8254)

Summary of Innovation

Versacart’s innovation, the Nesting U-Boat, is just that, a U-Boat, that nests.
It offers all the functionality of a conventional U-Boat while taking up a fraction of the space when nested and providing still more benefits like increased employee productivity, efficiency, and workplace safety. We have designed the Nesting U-Boat to save store-equipment users up to 60% of their valuable backroom space.
Currently U-Boats are one of the largest space-users in backrooms and to try to combat this they are often disassembled and stacked presenting a workplace safety issue as well as inhibiting the efficiency and productivity of employees as they need to unstack and re-assemble conventional U-Boats before use. The Nesting U-Boat solves this problem by nesting with each other, cutting the space used to store 10 U-Boats in half and allowing employees to easily and safely access the ready-to-use stocking staple.
