Key Features of Kardex Remstar Shuttles

Automated System

How to Use the Shuttle XP Vertical Lift ModuleKardex Remstar Shuttles feature a vertical automated storage system. This system automatically retrieves specific parts using integrated inventory management software. This feature reduces labor costs, improves efficiency, and increases productivity.

Space Saving

The Kardex vertical storage system can help optimize warehouse floor space with its unique lift shuttle inventory system. Traditional storage methods can take up a lot of floor space. However, these shuttles use overhead space to create productive storage space.

By replacing old storage methods with a Kardex storage system, warehouses can save up to 85% of floor space. The shuttle’s tray design eliminates the wasted air space of traditional shelving with bins to provide more storage in less space.

The shuttle boosts productivity and easily decreases working times by delivering storage trays to an ergonomic waist-high access opening allowing. This goods-to-person principle allows workers to find goods faster and order picking is done more accurately. 

The space-saving benefit makes these shuttles an essential investment for any business looking to optimize its warehouse space.

“The team at Southwest Solutions were nothing short of fantastic. First meeting with Craig, I received a customized design, in person, based on my office needs while still maintaining an efficient layout and being cost effective. Craig explained everything clearly, allowing me to understand that as modular mill-work, I would be able to move it if I ever changed offices, but without the added sales pressure to immediately make a decision. Once I had decided, I worked with Chris who assisted in picking out the finishes and scheduling the delivery and installation. The professionalism of Craig and Chris spoke volumes and I would highly recommend anyone looking to transform or fit-out an office to contact Southwest Solutions.”
