Do you struggle with order-picking accuracy and high labor costs in your warehouse?

A semi-automated, high-density storage and retrieval system—like the Raymond Radioshuttle™—might be the solution for your material handling needs.

What is a pallet handling system?

Pallet handling systems are computer-controlled, automated or semi-automated storage and retrieval systems. They maximize the pallet storage density of your warehouse space by reducing aisle width, and taking advantage of vertical space, too.

They also allow operators to work elsewhere while the system transports pallets, increasing the efficiency of both your warehouse and your people.

Is it right for my warehouse?

It depends on a variety of factors, like your product inventory size, storage methods, defining loads, how material is currently picked, how accurate your pick rate is, and current level of automation.

Pallet handling systems typically work best for material handling operations with redundancy and rapid picks. If your operation only selects loads a few times a day, this solution probably isn’t the right fit for your warehouse.

What are the benefits?

Beyond increased storage, operational efficiency, and employee productivity, pallet handling systems also offer:

  • Optimal selectivity: Select loads at each level. Sections are managed independently of other levels and sections.
  • Reduced costs: More pallet storage in your existing warehouse means less need for external storage of pallets.
  • Minimized damage: Goods are less prone to damage since the internal movement of pallets is automated.
  • Increased safety: Because minimal manual labor is needed, employees are less likely to get a work-related injury.
  • Faster movement of goods: Your existing fleet of trucks and drivers can move more product because they don’t need to move pallets, too.
