A pallet shuttle system has certain advantages over classic pallet racking. Pallet racking involves a definite loss of warehouse space due to the use of separate aisles between each double row of racks. If the need for storage capacity exceeds the capabilities of conventional pallet racking there are various alternatives.
Using a pallet shuttle system you place the goods one after the other in depth per level, where different levels are placed above and next to each other. The fork truck does not have to drive in to the racks because the shuttle machine automatically move the goods to the other side of the system.
Because the fork truck does not need to enter the storage system the chance of damage to the racks is greatly reduced. As an added advantage, compared to drive-in racks, you can vary in products between levels, because each level is separately accessible.

A pallet shuttle system consists of racks designed for the use of a shuttle machine. The shuttle machine is placed on and removed from the racks by the use of a forklift. The movements of the goods on pallets within the racks are performed by the shuttle machine. These automated movements save time for the user.
The tasks of the shuttle machine are transmitted using an RF (Radio Frequency) remote control. Each shuttle is equipped with lithium batteries that guarantee a shift up to 8 hours.
The pallet shuttle system is designed to achieve a higher storage capacity than possible with conventional pallet racking. When storing goods, several pallets can be placed behind each other on the same level. This determines that a pallet shuttle system is mainly suitable for the storage of uniform pallets where several pallets of the same product need to be stored.
In contrast to a flow rack, the internal movement of a shuttle system is done by means of an electrically powered shuttle machine. A forklift will put the pallets in the system and the shuttle machine will move the pallets to the other side of the system. With this horizontal movement, the shuttle machine will always keep a safe distance between pallets. Storing pallets as dense as possible without pallets touching each other.
The pallet shuttle can be adapted to your specific needs, in order to obtain maximum use of the available space in your warehouse.
CLN Racking’s technical team will advise you on the possibilities for your warehouse design and the realization of the design you have chosen. This involves a series of analyses, containing but not limited to storage requirement analysis, analysis of environmental factors, strength calculations and assembly processing. The design of the pallet shuttle system will always be based on the European standards and FEM (European Materials Handling Federation) recommendations in force.
We meet the following design and production standards;
