Automated shuttle transport

Robust, customer-specific and multi-functional

Major savings can be realised by opting for automated shuttle transport: fewer fork-lift trucks, fork-lift truck drivers, trailers, lorry drivers, as well as lower waiting times and higher capacity per dock.

Our automatic loading and unloading systems are fully customer-specific as far as mechanical components and controls are concerned. All machines are fully tested before they leave the factory. All loading and unloading systems supplied by A-service are very robust. This helps to reduce maintenance costs as well as downtime. Conventional loading and unloading continues to be possible.

Chain-based loading and unloading system: the pallet shuttle

Chain-based systems are used to automatically load and unload pallets. A-service has been supplying these systems for over 20 years and continues to be as innovative as ever. For instance, we invented the integrated chain-based system:

  • Loading and unloading speed adjustable between 4 and 8 m/min
  • Can be loaded and unloaded with a pallet truck
  • Electrically (AC or DC) or hydraulically driven
  • Advanced standard software or customer-specific software
  • Operation display with possible disruption indicators.
  • Manual operation
  • Automatic lubrication
  • Extra-thick axles
  • 3 chains (1 inch) per pallet
  • Heavy-duty bearings
  • High quality sensors

Slat based loading and unloading system: the cargo shuttle

Slat systems are suitable for automatically loading and unloading a variety of products (pallets, barrels, IBC’s). The supporting floor is flat, and thus universal, and system can be incorporated into new and existing trailers. Our slat floors are characterised by the following properties:

  • Patented easy-to-maintain click-slat system
  • Sturdy frame
  • Extra-thick axles
  • Heavy-duty chains
