Pallet picking

Traditionally, pallets are stored in pallet racks, flow racks or block stacking and picked by forklift trucks. Automated pallet-picking systems can deliver significant benefits by ensuring constant capacity and careful product handling.
Pallets can be picked from pallet high-bay storage with an automated storage and retrieval system. When combined with pallet conveyors and sortation systems, this can provide a fully automated pallet-picking process. Vanderlande has implemented pallet-picking systems at Argos, Colombini, Arrow Electronics, Edeka and Tchibo.
