Client Challenge

A logistics company sought Ayoubi Steel's expertise to optimize the warehouse management and storage of their long-shelf-life foodstuffs. The client needed to reduce handling time during their Last in First Out (LIFO) inventory management due to the shear size of their location and quantity of goods stored. Thus, the suggested solution would have to enhance efficiency while facilitating the storage or retrieval of their low-moving stock.

Ayoubi Steel’s Solution

Ayoubi Steel proposed the implementation of Radio Shuttle Pallet Racks, a state-of-the-art, semi-automated storage system designed to maximize storage capacity and streamline storage operations. Leveraging Italian based Automha's advanced radio-shuttle technology and Ayoubi Steel's customized design, the Radio-Shuttle Pallet Racks provided a seamless solution for the client's warehouse management needs.

Radio-shuttle pallet racking utilizes automated shuttle robots/runners to transport pallets within racks, increasing storage volume, and reducing the need for forklifts to enter storage aisles. This semi-automated solution enhances efficiency by automating the movement and selection of pallets while reducing factory accidents by avoiding forklift collisions during storage or extraction (within the aisles of the racks).

Our Radio-Shuttle Pallet Racking’s Technical Specifications:

  • Heavy-duty steel construction: ensures durability and stability, with a weight capacity of approximately 15 tons per row, meeting the demands of high-volume industrial storage.
  • Radio-Shuttle technology: automates pallet movement within the storage system, reducing manual handling and minimizing the risk of human error.
  • Customizable configurations: allows for selective extraction from each level, optimizing space utilization and facilitating efficient inventory management. Not to mention adjustable levels to accommodate various pallet heights.
  • Easy placement, use, and operation: of the shuttle runner to ensure smooth integration into the client's warehouse operations, enhancing overall efficiency and safety.

Implementation Process

Ayoubi Steel's team of experienced engineers conducted a thorough assessment of the client's warehouse layout and storage requirements. Collaborating closely with the client, Ayoubi Steel customized the Radio Shuttle Pallet Racks to suit the unique needs of the logistics company. The installation process, completed across two hangars totaling 4,000 m2, was executed with precision and efficiency.
