Shelf is an important tool for modern warehouses to improve efficiency. With the rapid development of the economy, foreign-funded enterprises flooded into the Yangtze River Delta and the Pearl River Delta, which not only drove the development of the local economy, but also brought new management concepts and management techniques. At present, the types of shelves used in enterprise warehouses are becoming more and more automated and intelligent.


The shelves are familiar from the medicine cabinets in ancient Chinese medicine stores, the various shelves used in modern shopping malls, the steel bars in large three-dimensional warehouses or the shelves made of more advanced materials.

The development of modern logistics is the premise of the emergence and development of three-dimensional warehouses, and is compatible with the development of industry and science and technology. Modern large-scale production has increasingly promoted the socialization, specialization and centralization of industrial production. The high degree of mechanization of production, automation will inevitably require the supply and distribution of materials in a timely, rapid and accurate manner. This has led to the rapid development of stereoscopic warehouse technology and has become a symbol of high technology in factory design.

The independent export of shelves began in 2000, mainly through the agency of foreign trade companies. Most of China's exports are pallet racks and high-rise heavy-duty shelves, while the export of stereoscopic warehouses with higher requirements for installation services is still relatively small. China's automated warehouse shelves have reached international standards. It can realize first-in-first-out, and can realize one replenishment and multiple picking. High storage efficiency.
