Looks neat. How well does it perform though? I've held off making anything like this myself due to the amount of checks it would have to do to function correctly.

Specifically: when the chest is full and the input is full and the output is full - how does it perform then with say 20 of them?
If you want to get ahold of me I'm almost always on Discord.

Yes I can, but need some time for it(80% for graphics).

Finally I've got it. So I now have a newer version and I can give it to you, to post it or I post it with your permission.
New Features are:
- Belt Provider/Requester Chests
- a base item to create the directional beltchests, so it's possible to change the direction
- two technologies to unlock the chests

hopefully my work isn't only for me and you give me the chance to share the newer version with the world. My thanks and bye bye

A superb addon! It is a pity though that the belt storage can't supply signals like a smart chest. It would make it much easier to get some sort of control of the input flux on the belt.

Look closer at the OP, there is in fact a Logistics beltchest submod.

It's not working for me in Factorio 0.11.3. I can put chest on belts, and items can pass throe. When u cut belts, chest suppose to collect them, but it don't. Items are stacking right on output, not inside the chest and don't want to move. I can pick them manually and nothing miss but chest is not working like should.
