Features & Benefits of Magic Rack

High density

Deep Storage provides outstanding storage capacity
Deep Storage carries multiple pallets to a single lane
and stores them along with minimal space in between.
It optimizes the use of limited space by achieving a high level
of storage efficiency that was not possible
with traditional storage methods.
High density Deep Storage provides outstanding storage capacity

POINT 01

Double the amount of pallet storage

Magic Rack does not require forklift aisles.
It significantly increases the storage efficiency of your available space!

POINT 02

Halve the building height when constructing a new warehouse

With Magic Rack, when constructing a new warehouse, you can cut the building height in half compared to traditional stacker crane-type automated warehouses! Helps to reduce construction costs and materials.

Automation

Increase on-site efficiency
by saving labor on forklifts
Magic Rack is a system that automatically stores pallets
with unmanned carriers, the "Magic Dolly" and "Magic Shuttle,"
working in pairs. It delivers long-term cost reductions for logistics sites
by reducing forklift work in storage areas and carrying
out automatic warehousing/shipping and assorting 24 hours a day, every day.
Automation Increase on-site efficiency by saving labor on forklifts

POINT 01

Minimized forklift work

Magic Rack automatically stores and retreives pallets with unmanned carriers, greatly reducing the forklift work area.
No more precious time wasted moving around warehouse for storing, retreiving and moving inventory.

POINT 02

Smooth shipping with automatic sorting

Magic Rack can take advantage of the late-night hours when it is not in use to sort pallets in advance for the shipping of the following day.
The next day work can begin from the point where sorting is complete, reducing the truck wait time and forklift work.
