The BT Radioshuttle is a semi-automated high speed load carrier which works within storage ‘tunnels’ and can be guided by a remote control to either place or retrieve pallets of items. This provides you with simple, efficient and reliable pallet handling with just the push of a button. Every hour, 7 days a week 70,000 pallets are being moved by a BT Radioshuttle system!
It works by shuttling pallets backwards and forwards within the racking, allowing them to be loaded and unloaded to the racking using a forklift truck, reach truck or a stacker. You can also move the shuttle between tunnels via this method too; the fork guides under the shuttle unit ensure safe and highly accurate handling.
One of the many benefits of the Radioshuttle system is its flexibility. It can be used in first in, last out (FILO) operations to maximise storage capacity with loading/ unloading at one end of the system. It can also be used in first in, first out (FIFO) operations with loading and unloading at opposite ends.
