In order to operate stacker cranes the licence issued by the Bureau of Technical Inspection (Urząd Dozoru Technicznego) is required.

The trolley is equipped with mechanical elements such as retractable forks which allows to make the storing, stacking and retrieve loads easier. Thanks to them, it is possible to operate in one passages between shelving units or several passages.
In terms of the construction stacker cranes are divided into:
