Pallet Shuttle Systems


Prestige has partnered with Automha to offer their semi-automated deep lane storage system, Pallet Runner. Configurable to FIFO or LIFO flow, Pallet Runner is drive-in without driving-in, push-back without pushing back, and pallet flow without gravity and unsafe pallet hang-ups.

Product Description and Benefits

Pallet Runner is a high-density deep lane storage system that features a shuttle vehicle that runs on rails inside a rack to retrieve and store pallets. Forklifts move the shuttles throughout the system to allow each lane to be loaded/unloaded.

This solution is cost-effective at ~1,200 pallet positions and is prime for low SKU count, fast-moving operations.

Save Time
  • First-in-class throughput (100+ pallets per hour per cart, dependent on set-up) enables maximum facility production.
  • Labor hours spent storing products are cut drastically.
  • 35+ pallet moves per hour per cart

Save Space
  • Store as densely as a drive-in rack system, with controllable pallet spacing (0.79 inches and up), so rack footprint within a facility is minimized.

Reduce Risks
  • There is less damage to the rack since lifts do not have to drive within the system.
  • Less damage to the product since carts transport the loads to position.
Save Energy
  • Reduces fuel needs for lift trucks.
  • Minimal lighting is needed within the lanes of the racking system.

Inventory Management
  • It is simple to count inventory within a lane given “Inventory” function
  • The Wi-Fi-enabled cart is able to interface with most WMS systems.


10 models of Pallet Runner carts are available based on the pallet size. The general specifications are as follows:

Fully Automated

While Pallet Runner is a semi-automated solution, Prestige also partners with Automha on their fully automated pallet shuttle system. This fully-automated solution, known as AutoSatMover, consists of Supercap (like Pallet Runner, but powered by a capacitor) and AutoSatMover (“Mother” cart). In a typical AutoSatMover system, a lifter will transport a pallet to the correct level within a system. The AutoSatMover will then transport the pallet to the correct bay, and the Supercap will transport the pallet to the correct position. These systems are usually fully integrated with a customer’s WMS, which governs all the movements.
