Pallet Flow Rack, also known as “gravity flow,” is a FIFO (first in, first out) storage system. Pallet flow rack systems are most commonly used for storing a large number of pallets of the same product or SKU. With pallet flow, you can achieve high-density storage while maintaining FIFO retrieval order. Pallet flow systems can be designed to hold up to 20 pallets deep in one lane and allow for speedy and efficient inventory retrieval. Different types of rollers, designed to serve different applications, are utilized in the design process.
Case & Carton Flow Racking, stocking of the racking is done from the back and picked (unloaded) from the front. A case flow rack or carton flow rack has several shelves, and each shelf generally has 4 or 6 lanes. Specific products are assigned to each lane. As items are picked, the next item slides down to take its place at the face of the racking. Everything works using rollers and gravity (nothing motorized). With a carton flow system, costs are kept low and efficiency is high.
