Cooling the maximum

The Pallet Mole Racking System was implemented by Jaleel Traders who decided to invests in high density cold storage.

Pallet Mole Racking System is a semi-auto­mated storage solution for the handling of goods inside chan­nels similar to a drive-in setup.

The Pallet Mole Racking System removes the need for forklift trucks to enter the aisles and hence offers a cost effective and time saving storage solution.

The Pallet Mole Racking System is a battery powered and so allows for use in any context. However, it is particularly suited for large-scale storage and is ideal for warehouses involved in high volume – low stock keeping unit (SKU) businesses.

Industries such as cold storage find this system of racking particularly helpful as the close and compact storage of goods aids in regulating temperatures.

Moreover, they are gentle on goods, so damage to stock is minimised, keeping return on investment high. Furthermore, they are incredibly versatile, being able to carry and transport a wide range of sizes and weights. This allows businesses to effectively plan for the most effective storage of goods possible.


Jaleel Traders, one of UAE’s largest food products distributors, has commissioned the country’s first Pallet Mole high-density storage system at its new 2000 pallet location cold store at Aweer Fruit & Vegetable Market.

The Pallet Mole Racking System has been designed and installed by ACME to raise standards in floor space utilisation and operator productivity, allowing Jaleel Traders to pick and load a 40′ container within 30 minutes.
The system combines the density of drive in racking with the benefits of flow racking and automation, according to Navin Narayan, director of ACME Group.

“The Pallet Mole Racking System, developed by our South African partners Storage Management Systems, is an ideal cost effective solution for customers who require to operate high density multi-SKU logistics facilities like cold stores and food distribution hubs,” he commented.

“Unlike other storage system layouts, which require multiple access aisles, the Pallet Mole system only requires aisles for pallet entry and retrieval, making them space efficient. The layout can be designed to go up to 60 pallets deep,” he added.
