Pallet Shuttle System is a semi-auto­mated storage solution for the handling of goods inside chan­nels similar to a drive-in setup. The Pallet Shuttle System removes the need for forklift trucks to enter the aisles and hence offers a cost effective and time saving storage solution.

The Dexion Pallet Shuttle System will save you both time and space, which in the fast-moving world of logistics equates to saving money.


  • Efficient system of compact storage for warehouses with low levels of SKU
  • Optimisation of storage, loading and unloading stages
  • Low level of risks or stress to the warehouse operating staff
  • Low level of risks or damage to the equipment -loading machinery and racks, thanks to the movement front warehouse
  • Removes the need for specialist forklift trucks

All handling of the goods within the channels is carried out using the Pallet Shuttle which is remotely controlled by the user. Handling of the pallets outside of the rack is conducted using standard forklift trucks. This therefore removes the need for a forklift truck to access the storage channel.

The pallets are placed on an Pallet Shuttle (a battery powered pallet cart) which carries the pallets into the rack.

The Pallet Shuttle System can work either as FIFO (first in, first out) or LIFO (last in first out), so it is a highly efficient alternative to Live storage and Drive-In Racking in such situations as:

  • Cold Storage
  • Food Production
  • Meat Processing
  • Beverage Production and Distribution
  • All Drive-In / Drive-Through Racking users


  • Increased Storage Capacity
  • Optimisation of storage, loading and unloading stages
  • High operating speeds
  • Good reliability (minimum maintenance for the Autosat® Shuttle and almost none for the racking)
  • Reduced number of operators
  • Reduced number of forklifts required
  • No requirement for specialised forklift trucks
  • Reduced operating costs

Saving time is obvious as a forklift truck does not need to enter the storage channel. The time required to position the pallets perfectly at the picking face or to retrieve the pallets is automatically handled by the Pallet Shuttle System, hence increasing the speed substantially.

Saving space is important. Since the forklift trucks does not need to access the aisle, all channels can be fully utilised at all times providing extra storage space. The Pallet Shuttle System offers high density and a more effective storage method.
