Stow Atlas pallet shuttle

The fully automated and integrated deep lane pallet shuttle system.

Stow Australia’s deep lane pallet shuttle system (Stow Atlas®) operates as a carrier that moves pallets within our Drive-In racking structure. Stow Atlas optimises and increases storage capacity and efficiency with less manual handling required.

The Stow Atlas shuttle system is a self-powered, remote controlled device that runs on rails in deep storage situations to load and unload pallets. This racking system is sometimes referred to as “satellite racking” or “satellite storage”.

The loading and unloading tasks are communicated via remote control. After the required task is complete, the Atlas Shuttle returns to its home position on the racking system; either to stand-by or be transported to another lane to perform another task.

This solution significantly reduces the overall risk of racking damage due to the forklift not needing to enter the installation itself. Each pallet shuttle is fitted with rechargeable batteries, and Stow Atlas’ superior battery life is a big advantage over other shuttle systems. The Atlas is generally 20-30% better than others in the market.
