New Radio Shuttle system in Serbia, for a distribution center for 6 different countries


  • Industry: Food and Beverages | Bottling industry | ROSA water contains low levels of mineralization - of only 50 mg/l. and has a significantly low sodium content - only 2.7 mg/l. These characteristics make the water suitable for pregnant women and children, and even for baby food preparation.​​​​​​The warehouse is a strategic distribution hub for the ROSA brand in Bulgaria, Serbia, Macedonia, Bosnia, Montenegro and Kosovo and has to provide palletized bottles for numerous trucks on a daily basis.


  • Period of implementation: The engineering and the design of the heavy-duty racks structure and the robotic systems was done during the same period as the construction of the external structure of the warehouse and took 2 months. In just 3 weeks, the system was put into operation.


  • Challenge: A huge amount of trucks have to be loaded daily with nearly 1000 kg. pallets. STAMH had to design and build a racking system for storing and retrieving pallets, able to use effectively the limited space, storing various products, but mostly to retrieve and store pallets really quickly.


  • Solution: Radio Shuttle is one of the most efficient solutions offered by STAMH Group. The new storage system built for Coca-Cola is capable to accommodate up to 4 608 pallets in a limited space. It is organized in 32 corridors with a total of 6 stacking levels. It has the ability to store and retrieve up to 192 different SKUS, organized in wrapped pallets - products with different labels and packaging, designed for different markets. The new storage system is equipped with 4 semi-automatic Radio Shuttle platforms for pallets storage and retrieval.​​​​​​​ The racking construction is stable and allows the smooth and fast Radio Shuttle platforms operations. Each Radio Shuttle platform can operate in a fully automated mode in each of the 192 corridors.


  • Achievement: The Radio Shuttle platforms were programmed to achieve maximum storage density by positioning each pallet at a maximum distance of 5 cm. one from another, while operating at optimum speed. They passed successfully all the performance tests, meeting the highset possible standards required by the customer.
