Satellite racking is also known as the shuttle racking. This racking has few similarities in nature to Drive-in racking. The main difference is that each level of satellite racking can be a separate SKU. Moreover, a shuttle cart is positioned to rails which are under the pallet rails. This allows travel into the rack and then lifts up the pallet to bringing back the front of the rack.

The automatic satellite vehicles are the perfect ideal warehouse management tool because these vehicles serve the rack systems independently. Moreover, they can be used in large numbers of compact storage with a high throughput. But the more diversity in the mixture of articles in channels (various unit loads in one aisle), the more single pick-ups, organisational operations and re-storing are required.
Thus, this method must be performed by those who are in the warehouse control. Improving the implementation of retrieval orders can be achieved by moving single unit loads near the retrieval point early.
