The shuttle system is a semi-automated storage system. It can be designed to be either the LIFO (loading and unloading on the same side) as well as FIFO (loading on one side and unloading from the other side).
Through this semiautomated compact storage system with shuttle trucks, the loading unit is moved by the shuttle within the channel, thus preventing the lift truck from driving into the racking structure.
This system consists of racking frames joined by beams supporting the rails, which serve to store pallets in the depth and for the movement of the shuttle. The shuttle moves autonomously on the rails, putting the load into its corresponding location.
Due to the fact that the lift truck does not need to drive into the racking structure, the hadling times are reduced, increasing the storage capacity in depth. The risk of accidents or damage on the racking is dramatically reduced, warehouse workers optimize their movements and the operations in the warehouse are more optimized.
