E-commerce growth is driven by consumer benefits, but in
many cases, creates problems for order picking, packaging, and
If you have employees picking orders from racks and shelving, or
manually loading and unloading pallets, we can show you how a
small investment in a PalletPal® Level Loader can make the job faster,
safer, and easier. These inexpensive devices position pallets at a
comfortable height, eliminating the bending, reaching, and stretching
required for manual loading and unloading. Many units have turntable
tops to allow workers to stay in one spot throughout the process.
When pallet loads are damaged or need to be transferred from
in-house to outbound pallets or skids, the PalletPal Pallet Rotator
can assist workers by effortlessly positioning the entire pallet load
for transfer or product replacement.
With over a dozen models to chose from, there is sure to be a
PalletPal Level Loader for your application.

Logistics technology startup CommonSense Robotics says it has begun
construction on what it calls the “world’s first underground automated
warehouse” and will use the space in a parking garage in downtown Tel
Aviv, Israel, to provide one-hour delivery service for local grocery retailers.
In order to meet the growing consumer demand for same-day and
one-hour deliveries, e-commerce fulfillment must move from centralized
warehouses in rural areas to smaller sites inside cities, said Tel Aviv-based
CommonSense. Yet performing e-commerce fulfillment in city centers presents a problem, since traditional urban spaces can be cost-prohibitive for
retailers. CommonSense says it will leverage underutilized urban real estate
such as vacant parking lots and abandoned storefronts as a solution.
The planned “micro-fulfillment center” (MFC) will be CommonSense’s
second robotic fulfillment center, following its first facility, known as MFC
One. That site has been servicing retail partner Super-Pharm since October
2018 and is currently fulfilling over 400 orders a day from a 6,000-square-
The new MFC fits the company’s robotic fulfillment center design into
an 18,000-square-foot triangular space with an average clearance height
of just 11 feet. Located beneath Tel Aviv’s oldest skyscraper, Shalom Meir
Tower, the grocery site will include separate temperature zones to support
fulfillment of fresh, ambient, chilled, and frozen items.
