Radio Shuttle Racking is a new kind of storage management systems, with high density storage racking and electrically powder pallet runners and working with forklifts. It makes a new concept for loading pallets and storage space, utilizes the warehouse space more adequately and flexibility comparing with other traditional storage styles.
Radio Shuttle System is a new concept on handling and compact storage of palletized loads. The system has a better utilization and flexibility compared to conventional warehousing. It also gives a higher handling capacity, more efficient in operation and a safer working environment for operators. Furthermore, it shorten the travelling route and frequency of usage of forklifts as a result the system is specially suitable for chilled warehouses and FMCG distribution centers.
The Radio Shuttle system consists of a pallet racking system which completed with numbers of lanes and rails. Palletized goods are stored on the rack system and are transported by a carrier – shuttle car. The radio-controlled shuttle car helps transporting the goods and stoving the pallets resulting in full utilization of each lane. Forklift trucks are just load and unload on the picking faces without the need to driving in. It reduces the risk of damage on racking structure and it provides a safer working environment. 70% of the handling process are automatically finished by the shuttle cars which reduce the forklift travel and make them available for other opeartion.

1. Configuration of Radio Shuttle Racking System
Radio Shuttle Racking System includes 3 required combined parts for working as Radio Shuttle Racks, Radio Shuttle Cart (Pallet Runner) and Forklift:
|Radio Shuttle Racks||Shuttle Cart (Pallet Runner)||Forklift|
2. Storage working types
Radio Shuttle racking system is a special made racking system for radio shuttle which based on the structure of drive in rack. Compared with drive in racking system, it is more stable and secure. The depth of the racking can be more than 30m to 60m which drive in racking system can be only around 20m. Depending on the warehouse structure, the shuttle racking system can be also support for FILO and FIFO, especially Seleted Picking with Tunnel, or Mixed Storage Design working.
Radio Shuttle Cart, also called as Pallet Runner, Pallet moles, Pallet Shuttle, could provide clients with maximum flexibility in its set up. From traditional FIFO or LIFO, to high density case picking or an 80/20 configuration, Pallet Runner can accommodate multiple system designs.
|First In – First Out (FIFO)||Last In – First Out (LIFO)||Selected Picking with Tunnel||Mixed Storage Design|
3. Storage Working Principle of Radio Shuttle Racking System:
With a specific made guide rail, the Radio shuttle Cart (or called as Pallet Runner, Pallet mole ) can work on the storage rack system smoothly. The end stopper is for prevent shuttle to fall down when moving. Due to different kind of Radio shuttle, Radio shuttle racking system can be made which according to the customers’ requirements.
Because the Radio shuttle racking system no longer need the forklift to pick up the goods inside of tunnel, but a shuttle instead, the tunnel of shuttle racking system can be designed smaller. Therefore optimizing the warehouse performance.
