Transporting Pallets from Pick Areas

Pallets are the backbone of modern supply chains. Seeing companies struggle to use traditional pallet AGVs at the same time, stay stuck with inefficent approaches, Tractonomy has developed a simple and effective approach for picking operations with pallets and cases. 

Pallet pain

Forklifts are ideal for stacking and picking pallets but drivers spend a lot of time driving empty. VNA forklifts cannot leave their smooth floored areas. Walking heavy pallet jacks is time consuming with significant injury risks. Automated forklift AGVs are so slow and you end up create seperate areas for humans and AGVs. What a hassle.


Think different. Why not leave forklifts to do the high reach work or people do the case picking. Now use smaller, safer robots to tow pallets through human area. You can save thousands of hours of wasted time and create a happier productive environment for your workforce. 

Towing Solutions for Pallets or Cages

How it works

Start moving pallets using our bespoke pallet carts. Our ATR2 robots can tow pallet carts up to 1000kg (2200lbs) with high levels of safety. Just load and unload pallets or cages on the cart using a forklift (even automated) or a pallet jack.

Our approach can dramatically reduce driving and walking time leading to major savings in short periods. Here’s an example scenario from a warehouse that does a lot of picking on pallets.

Reduce Forklift Fleet Size by Zoning

Reduce Forklift Fleet Size by Zoning

Lift trucks are most effective picking and putting away pallets. Save wasted driving and walking time with drivers or staff leaving storage alleys to drop pallets far away.  Using well established zoning approaches, lift trucks can be restricted to safely work in storage alleys.

Use Towing Robots to Transfer Pallets

Use Towing Robots to Transfer Pallets

Zoned Lift trucks transfer pallets to carts towed by our robots. Our robots can match forklift speeds and pull pallets up to 1000kg (2200lbs). They avoid accidents and transport pallets to outbound or other staging areas. Gain significant productivity with this simple approach.

Improve efficiency in staging areas

Improve efficiency in staging areas

Our robots bring pallets to a staging area, e.g. a packaging station or directly to outbound truck gates where an associate can unload the pallet with a lift truck. Its that simple.
