This type of high-density compact storage solution uses powered shuttles to automatically carry loads into the rack. The pallet shuttles are remotely controlled by an operator. Hence, there is an optimum use of storage space and workplace accident rates are also reduced. The use of automated shuttles in place of forklifts during the storage process not only reduces the risk of accidents, but also the maintenance costs resulting from damage of the rack.
This system can work either as FIFO or as LIFO, even in freezer chambers, with temperatures of up to -30°C.
This system reinforces logistical capacity qualitatively and quantitatively, since it automates the handling of goods on pallets; it is also possible to control the inventory through a system of sensors which count the stored pallets.
Advantages and features
- Low-cost maintenance
