The history of mobile storage
Since the dawn of time, man has had a need for storage. This started off as a need to store food, and ever since people have been trying to find ways to store things in the most effective way possible.
In around 1936, Thomas Foulkes invented the so-called “Stormor”, which first used shelves mounted on mobile bases. It was a great start, but only had a limited load and wasn’t very accessible. The Second World War then saw a great improvement in logistics, especially with the introduction of unified pallets. Glover then launched manual equipment driven by chains. This led to the need to minimise storage space, all while increasing the number of stored goods became more needed.
In 1966 Hans Ingold’s Compactus Mobile Storage System was patented. By using mobile frames for boxes or pallets, he manged to decrease a warehouse’s size by 40% while increasing its capacity by 85%. His system wasn’t perfect though, as using chains and toothed wheels limited its efficiency. It did, however, provide the building blocks for today’s modern technology. These new modern technologies included adding electric drive units, safety elements, and including I.T.
So, what started as a way to archive documents became a way to store goods of any kind, especially in cooling and freezing plants. Nowadays, possibilities like as warehouse management systems and automatically guided vehicles for distributing pallets have now emerged.
