Shuttle Technology

Shuttle technology is the main component of automated storage and retrieval systems (AS/RS). Unlike a fixed aisle AS/RS system, each row within the racking structure has its own shuttle that runs horizontally through the row. At the end of the racking structure are vertical lift modules that lift or lower items in and out of the racking structure. The independence between the two, allow for multiple shuttles to operate simultaneously at the same time, providing higher throughput rates. Shuttle technology enhances any warehouse automation operation.

Benefits of Shuttle Technology

  • Throughput rates are multiple times higher than a fixed aisle AS/RS
  • Quick access to inventory
  • Scaleable design allows for future inventory growth
  • Speeds up inventory release, increasing efficiency
  • Good when storage density is needed because of limited space
  • Can help reduce damage to product
  • Improves organization
