Shuttle racking is an alternative to Drive In racking or Live Storage Racking. The idea is that each lane is a single product but unlike drive in racking not all products within the bay need to be the same thus allowing greater density of storage. There is also the possibility to store the pallets either in a first in last out basis or first in first out.
The racking works by using a shuttle or satellite that is placed on rails under the pallet storage rails. These shuttles then pick up the pallet and take it to its storage place. We can in certain circumstances adapt existing drive in racking as we did at Cott Beverages (please see attached case study) to accommodate shuttle racking.
We are an independent supplier of pallet racking and are therefore not tied to one manufacturers system. We can offer whatever racking system we believe is the best for your needs or the most cost effective. Pallet racking is installed to meet the SEMA code of practice, a tried and trusted standard within the UK. (meeting FEM European Standards).
Initially pallet racking looks straight forward but the effective use of the warehouse space can be affected by the pallet racking design and the interface with different types of for lift truck.
