The fast paced nature of Australian business demands efficiency and streamlined processes within all chains of output.  With the consumer and food industry moving at electric speeds to meet customer demands, Australian businesses must invest in innovative and efficient storage systems to get ahead of the pack. As one of the largest industries worldwide, the fast-moving consumer goods (FMCG) sector typically deal with cheaper products that have a shorter shelf life, so swift and well-organised storage and distribution is paramount. Traditional forms of storage solutions simply don’t cut it. By compromising efficiencies in the warehouse, the consequences to businesses may be detrimental, including product waste and profit loss.

 

 

Automation is the Solution

Investing in an automated storage system will ensure speed and efficiency in product accessibility, with minimal effort. Automation ensures an efficient flow of goods, in large volumes, with individual pallet accessibility, by simply configuring the system to meet your business needs. When it comes to FMCG, the Stow Atlas pallet shuttle system is a leader in compact and high capacity warehousing. Why not see for yourself in this short video demonstrating the Stow Atlas pallet shuffle smoothly and efficiently transferring pallets in a warehouse with ease.

 

 

Optimised storage capacity with unlimited lane depth

The automated pallet storage system guarantees the highest possible storage density through its optimal use of storage space. The automated pallet storage system consists of pallet racking configured in deep integrated lanes of pallets and it uses a robotic shuttle which carries pallets from the front of the lane down into the rear of the lane.

 

Control at your fingertips

As a self-powered device, the shuttle runs on rails in the storage lanes for the loading and unloading of pallets with no human intervention required; ensuring higher accuracy. Using a remote control, the fork lift driver can complete the loading and unloading tasks with ease.  Once the job is done, the shuttle returns to its home position and is ready to be transported to a new area for the next task.  With long lasting batteries, the pallet shuttle has the capacity to work harder for longer.

The Stow Atlas pallet shuttle system also significantly reduces the cost of accidental damage to the pallet racking as the forklift never enters the racking structure – all loading and unloading is done from the front picking face.

 

Perfect in varied temperature conditions

The electro-mechanical lifting mechanism in the pallet shuttle is not only perfect in dry warehouse conditions, it can also be used in cold storage conditions from -30 degrees upwards, making it ideal for managing high levels of perishable stock within the food industry.
