Travel Time and Safety

The time it takes a forklift operator to store and retrieve a load is the most important factor in determining efficiency.

Pallet shuttle systems eliminate the need for forklifts to travel all over the warehouse or distribution center. They also eliminate the need for operators to drive in channels, which drastically increases efficiency and eliminates forklift damage to the system.

 

Applications

ROI increases with the number of lanes required. This system is intended for low SKU count with high volume. Understanding SKU count, along with pallet strength and sizes are very important when reviewing initial concepts.
