The »Future Challenges in Logistics and Supply Chain Management« series addresses current challenges, highlights trends and focuses on new technologies and business models. The various issues of the series paint a picture of the future of an innovative industry that is shaped and lived by research and practice.

This white paper takes a closer look at two racking systems for high-density storage: the Pallet Flow System (pallet flow racking) and the semi-automatic Pallet Shuttle System (shuttle racking). Both solutions cover a similar range of applications and offer different advantages and disadvantages due to their functions and operating mechanisms.
