How can shuttle mobility help the food industry solve its problems?

the shuttle system solution solves a series of problems for businesses, such as a large increase in order processing volume, low efficiency in outbound operations, and complex order picking operations. It avoids working in an environment of minus 25°, and provides a good working environment for workers.

1. Project overview

4 sets of shuttles and shuttles- 4 layers storage- 1 set ofbound and outgoing conveying equipment- 2 sets of vertical cargo conveyors – 64 pallets/hour- Mminus 25 degrees

The warehouse is used as a cold store for food storage. In order to effectively reduce cooling costs and maximize storage capacity, dense shuttle and shuttle storage system is adopted. The project is planned to have 1 carriageway, 4 sets of shuttles and shuttles, 4 layers storage, 1 set of inbound and outgoing conveying equipment and 2 sets of vertical freight conveyors. Perform fully automatic warehouse entries and exits.

The system can operate at minus 25 degreesand performs a series of automatic operations from depalletizing, warehousing, storage and delivery of products.


  • With the expansion of business, the order processing volume of enterprises has increased significantly.
  • Warehouses that operate manually will face many challenges: low efficiency, complex operations, and harsh working environments.

The main goal of the research and development of shuttle and shuttle mover is to locate an efficient intelligent storage system, and its input-output efficiency can reach 64 pallets/hour. For companies whose volume of activity is increasing rapidly, the shuttle system is a very suitable solution.

2. Access Sstrategy for shuttle system

incoming strategy: The Shuttle Warehouse and shuttle mover usually combines the smart partition strategy when assigning the incoming carriageway, and uses the principle of move-in to the nearest. Once the route of arrival has been determined, the filling principle is adopted, i.e. the drive-in allocation strategy is adopted for the loading space in the roadway.

Outgoing strategy: When assigning outbound routes, various principles such as material FIFO, and moving to nearest are generally used for full balance treatment. Once the exit route has been determined, the emptying principle is adopted, combined with logistics planning and design, and recovery strategies. FIFOs and FILOs in the roadway are implemented.

Relocation strategy: Thanks to the combined operation of shuttles and conveyors, it is possible to move flexibly between different warehouse areas, floors and roadways of the dense warehouse, which is practice for customers of with flexibility manage warehouses and allocate materials.

Jallied strategy: Through the organic combination of information software, electronic control system and logistics equipment. The shuttle can be sent to transfer pallets from the rear end of the aisle to the front end of the outbound pickup in sequence. Improve logistics efficiency and outbound capacity.

3. Oneapplicable Iindustries. The shuttle system is widely used in cold chain food, chemical industry, new energy, wine, ceramics, furniture, communication, electricity, new retail and d other industries.

Advantages :

1). The modular design of the equipment realizes system automationwhich is a perfect combination of intensive storage and intelligent warehousing system.

2). The additional equipment at the later stage can increase the efficiency of warehouse entry/warehousing, realize the upgrade of the semi-automatic shuttle racking system, and interconnect with the systems of production and logistics;

3). Delivery method: FIFO/FIFO;

4). the terms for the layout of the warehouse building, the height from the floor and the load are significantly reduced;

5). The layout combination is very softand it can realize non-continuous floor, multi-zone layout and realize fully automatic storage.

The shuttle system can maximize storage space in a limited area, and has the characteristics of low investment cost and high efficiency. It can comprehensively strengthen the management level of enterprise logistics, provide data support for auxiliary analysis of decision-making for production and sales, reduce labor costs, and ultimately achieve the goal of improving the core competitiveness of enterprises.
