Pick up and Deposit stations (P and D stations)
Storage locations at the end of an aisle used as an interface between different types of mechanical handling equipment.
NOTE: The P and D stations can be used as an interface between the unit load and handling equipment that is dedicated to the rack aisle (such as very narrow aisle (VNA) trucks or cranes) and the conveyors or free movement trucks which service the installation. The P and D stations can also be used to accurately fix the location of the unit load relative to the racking. This is often used by trucks or cranes having a fixed length of fork stroke and ensures accuracy in the X and Z directions when placing the unit load onto the racking beams.
Consists of submitting your storage equipment and shelves to periodic reviews (at least once every 12 months) applying the UNE EN 15635 standard and the NTP 852 prevention technical note, and carried out by external, independent and competent personnel.

Remember that your shelves are work equipment and are subject to the provisions of Royal Decree RD 1215/1997.
