Pallet Shuttle System
First in? Last in? Either way, it's FAST
Operating at 35 metres per minute, the Pallet Shuttle System is one of the most efficient bulk storage solutions on the market.
It’s ability to combine different pallet types, located at varying distances, with storage lanes in excess of 50m, plus the added option to work either as First in, First out (FIFO) or as Last in, First out (LIFO) makes it a great alternative to conventional pallet racking configurations.
This high-density solution can significantly reduce the size of warehouse required and ultimately, reduce operational costs. Ideal for those whose storage requirements equate to bulk storage with a reduced SKU range.

Why the Pallet Shuttle system is so good
This system eliminates the need for access lanes, reducing the overall storage area needed in a warehouse.
Once installed, the system can be used for both mixed and bulk storage and is equally suited to both LIFO and FIFO operations, removing many of the stocking limitations associated with Drive-in racking.
With the Pallet Shuttle System, you can improve the efficiency of your warehouse operations, with Return on Investment (RoI) typically being achieved over two years as opposed to four-to-five for alternative product types.

Fast, Efficient, Flexible
The Pallet Shuttle system increases the throughput of warehouse operations, with the option to add additional shuttles to the operation when market peaks or ongoing growth is experienced. This flexibility allows for better operational planning and smooth management of peaks - without the need for additional resource.
As the shuttles operate using an on-board Lithium Ion battery, operating range is increased and charging times are reduced – resulting in low energy cost requirements against significantly improved pallet movements.
Offering measurable workplace safety benefits, Pallet Shuttle enables your business to become more risk averse as the system reduces the hazard level of damage to the equipment and/or product and, most importantly, risk to operating staff.

“The biggest advantage we have achieved with the Shuttle system is space utilization. Another is that we only need 1 truck for handling. The shuttle picks up and brings pallets to and from picking opening.” -
