The Microshuttle developed by Vanderlande is a value-added and energy efficient solution for low- to medium-throughput applications in a broad range of industries. It is an automated storage and retrieval system that is not dedicated to one storage level but can move between different levels in the racking via a lift. It makes use of capacitors, enabling them to operate autonomously without the need for power rails in the aisles, and of wireless communication. Each Microshuttle system can grow with an individual business and match the required throughput. It was designed to be lightweight, energy efficient and cost-effective system.
