Automated Deep Lane Pallet Storage

If you’re looking to maximize pallet storage in your facility, an automated deep lane pallet storage system provides efficient high-density storage in a safe environment.

Automated pallet storage systems consist of a shuttle vehicle, docking station and specially designed channel storage. These types of material storage systems offer greater capacity than a traditional pallet rack storage by using an electrically driven trolley that runs on rails below the pallets. Using radio frequency controlled carts that the pallet gets transported on, it provides a far more efficient and cost-effective solution than traditional racking systems, and can be operated in either FILO (First In Last Out) or FIFO (First In First Out) modes in excess of 20 pallets deep.

How It Works

Here’s how this material storage equipment works: the docking station and the shuttle vehicle form a single unit that can be moved to different pallet storage lanes. Racks in which the pallet shuttle cart operates have a centering platform fitted onto the front. A forklift picks up the docking station and places it into the centering platform of the designated rack. The forklift then begins storage operations by placing inbound pallets on the console. While the forklift attends to the next pallet to be stored, the platform transports the pallet quickly and safely to its desired storage location within the rack. Movement commands are given to the pallet platform vehicle through a wireless remote control.

System Independence

The deep lane pallet storage system can work with conventional fork-lifts, allowing companies to continue to use the existing material handling fleet at their warehouse or distribution center.

Radio Remote Control

The impressive hand remote is easy and clear to operate as well as being robust for daily use. Logical and clear icons enable simple and fast operation of the system.


The rack face is designed with a robust, secure electric contact block, which transfers power to the docking station used. The contacts are fully all-insulated.

Other benefits of an automated deep lane pallet storage system include:

  • Easy to use docking station to minimize forklift operator training
  • High speed: storage and retrieval speed
  • User friendly icons on the remote control
  • Innovative power supply
  • Suitable for deep freeze and cold storage
  • Intelligent storage technology for more efficient permanent use
  • Innovative lifting mechanism without hydraulics
  • Four high resolution controlled drives for performance
  • Intelligent system with extensive operating options
