Interlake Mecalux Inc. has introduced the Radio Shuttle semi-automated, high-density pallet storage system. This high-density pallet storage system simplifies the loading and unloading of goods by utilizing an electric cart called a Radio Shuttle.
Designed to be flexible and easy to use, the Radio Shuttle is ideal for high-density compact storage, cold storage, and buffers for temporary storage or prepared orders. Radio Shuttle carts can be used with existing pallets, forklifts, and popular warehouse system designs. The system can work alongside traditional rack installations like selective racking, which have limited storage density but can store a large variety of SKUs. One unit can be used throughout the entire warehouse, assigned to each SKU, or placed on each level of rack. The Radio Shuttle cart's compatibility with different pallet sizes allows pallets of different widths to be compacted inside channels. Vertical spacing between levels is also reduced for efficient utilization of space.
There are two options for communication with the Radio Shuttle carts: remote control or EasyWMS software. EasyWMS is a warehouse management software application that can be integrated within an existing enterprise resource planning (ERFP) or as a standalone computer program. The remote control functions do not require specialized training, and multiple Radio Shuttles can be controlled by one remote. A forklift operator can access pallets one-by-one with the remote, while more complex operations can be performed using EasyWMS.
