Shuttle

     The latest innovation in warehouse storage, the pallet shuttle is a very dense storage system in which a robotic shuttle receives commands from a control panel or tablet and automatically places and retrieves pallets within the system, collecting or presenting them at a designated loading point for the forklift.

     While the forklift is loading or unloading the next pallet, the shuttle is off carrying out its task and is ready for more by the time the forklift returns.

     This has the advantage of dramatically reducing operating times and increasing the flow of incoming/ outgoing goods. There is also a large reduction in maintenance costs as the racks themselves are not accessed by forklift thereby eliminating accidental damage by mechanical handling equipment.
