Storage density

Storage density is a factor that determines whether the warehouse space is used to the fullest extent or not. For warehouses that need to store a lot of goods but have difficulty in expanding the space, this is even more important.
Radio Shuttle racking is one of the racking types that utilize the highest warehouse floor surface up to 80%. To achieve this, the Radio Shuttle racking cuts out the entire aisle between the racks and minimizes the height between the levels of racks.
In addition, Radio Shuttle racking has an outstanding depth of up to 40 pallets on a racking level and a safe height of up to 15m to help promote all the strengths of the warehouse space.

Demand of loading/unloading goods

Determining the loading/unloading needs of goods from the very beginning will help a lot in choosing the right type of storage racking. Loading/unloading needs include loading and unloading principles, accessibility of goods, speed of loading and unloading.
When choosing Radio Shuttle racks, businesses no longer have to worry about the principle of loading and unloading goods in the warehouse. This type of racking allows to apply both LIFO and FIFO principles in the warehouse and can flexibly change the principles during use.
Fast loading and unloading speed is a great advantage of Radio Shuttle racks. The movement of pallets of goods takes place entirely inside the racking and is done by the Radio Shuttle robot. The fast moving pallet picking robot with remote control eliminates the need to drive the forklift into the racking, thereby minimizing the risk of collision between the racking and the forklift.
However, due to the seamless layout with high density, the racks are quite deep. Therefore, the shuttle robot cannot move all the pallets inside the racking due to being entangled by the outer pallets.
