Abstract

PURPOSE: To obviate the arrangement for a storage temporary placing shelf and a delivery temporary placing shelf on both ends of a storage area by standingly arranging a reservoir for storage/delivery, which lifts/lowers an article conveyed in from the outside so as to transfer it to a storage temporary placing shelf and lifts/lowers an article on a delivery temporary placing shelf so as to transfer it to the outside, adjacently to the storage temporary placing shelf and the delivery temporary placing shelf. CONSTITUTION: A traveling carriage 23 parallelly moving in the lateral direction along a storage area 20 is arranged in every two shelf levels in the vertical direction of the storage area 20 in a space. A picker 24, which is arranged on the traveling carriage 23 and moves upward and downward between shelves 21 in corresponding two shelf levels so as to convey in/out an article between the shelves 21, is arranged. Toward the picker 24, each storage temporary placing shelf 32 and each delivery temporary placing shelf 33 are arranged in a line vertically, and a reservoir 27 for storage/delivery, by which an article conveyed in from the outside is lifted/lowered so as to be transferred to each storage temporary placing shelf 32 and an article on each delivery temporary placing shelf 33 is lifted/lowered and transferred so as to be conveyed out to the outside, is standingly arranged. In this way, there is no need for separately arranging the storage temporary placing shelf 32 and the delivery temporary placing shelf 33 on both ends of the storage area 20.
