Project Description


Radio shuttle is deep lane storage and retrieval system. It is a carrier used to move pallets within a specifically designed racking structure, thus optimizing the storage capacity.

The shuttle is a self-powered device that runs on the rails in the storage lanes for the loading and unloading of pallets. These tasks are communicated by the forklift driver using a remote control. Once the tasks are completed the shuttle returns to its home position and is then ready to be transported to a new location for a new task.

By introducing more shuttles into a racking system, the performance will increase. The system can be used for new installations as well as for refurbishments, and is independent from the number and the depth of the lanes. The automated system guarantees the highest possible storage density

Shuttle systems are used for:

  • Storage in batch quantities
  • Replenishing order picking tunnel systems
  • Either First-In-First-Out (FIFO) or Last-In-First-Out (LIFO)
  • Warehouses with limited human resources
  • Application in cold stores
