Radio Shuttle Racking

Our radio shuttle system is a space effective way to store bulk loads, such as food, drink and other palletised items, which are conventionally stored with drive-in, push back or pallet live racking systems. Particularly suited to high volume low SKU applications.

Our radio shuttle system stores items via an automated shuttle that travels on support rails, converting drive-in pallet racking into an automated storage solution.

Pallets are loaded onto the front rail, the shuttle lifts the load from this point and transports it down to the furthest downstream point. The built-in sensor on the shuttle racking system detects the position of the next pallet and places the new load at a predetermined, but adjustable distance from them, before returning to the start face. Unloading is merely the opposite operation.

The pallet shuttle movements are enabled by a remote control, allowing the forklift truck operator to move onto the next task, whilst the shuttle moves the pallet to the correct storage location. The shuttle system is serviced by a standard fork lift truck.


  • Lightweight 48v lithium Ion battery
  • A single charge gives an eight hour operational capacity (based on a throughput of 30 pallets per hour)
  • Low battery warning system with automatic return home function
  • Cold store shuttle storage model that can be used in deep freeze environments of down to -30°C  without loss of power or operational efficiency
  • Variable distance adjustment between pallets
  • Innovative placement using laser technology
  • Anti-Collision technology
  • Minimal maintenance required
  • Inventory counting/stock take function available
  • WMS Compatible
  • Shuttle will operate at distances of 150m allowing significant lane depths.
