The modular design of the MOVO system means that it is easy to design the most efficient and economical installation for any situation. Rails, bases and control system are chosen to give the best possible fit with your requirements and building. MOVO can be used for both narrow Aisle man-up forklift trucks and wide aisle standard forklift truck situations.

In addition to the standard MOVO controls, there are a variety of optional control methods which can be used to speed up your operation or to ensure reliable stock control.

MOVO can be tailored to your control requirements, from the simple addition of radio control on the forklift to the full integration into your storage ERP-system network.

The difference is in the detail…

  • light control – only the open aisle is lit – saves electricity
  • commission mode –open pre-selected aisles – save time
  • night position – improves air circulation – preserves goods
  • sprinkler position – a mode for fire protection – added safety
  • stock position – multiple aisles partially open for access – easy picking
  • remote control – fast and easy operation – faster picking on FLT

And everything for cold and normal temperature stores, MOVO is operationally safe at temperatures of -30 degrees centigrade and can be used even down at -40 degrees centigrade.

With more than 9500 installations worldwide DEXION has gained experience over many decades as a developer and producer of heavy mobile racking systems. Based on this experience we can design our MOVO – Mobile Pallet Racking systems in the most optimal way for the requirements of our customers.
