Carton Flow Rack

Carton Flow Rack

Carton Flow Rack systems allow for high density storage of cartons and other light products. This leads to savings in space and better inventory turnover control. Carton flow rack helps avoids delay in material preparation and restocking. By providing better visibility and availability a business will be able to reduce order preparation time. All types of flow rack are ideal for distribution centers and warehouses that utilize the FIFO (first in, first out) method of inventory control. When applying the FIFO (First in, First out) system, the first inventory unit load in is the first load out. This will help to decrease operational expenses due to the better utilization of space. The overall manual maneuvering and removal time of inventory unit loads is reduced due to the efficient positioning of the products. This results in decrease maneuvering and displacement times of employees due to the higher number of references at the front of the racks resulting in shorter trips. Carton flow rack does not need much maintenance following installation.

New Carton Flow Rack can be stand-alone units or placed into pallet rack to create a high-density storage system. Carton flow rack, combined with accumulating conveyor, is designed to meet the customers' inventory needs. The dimensions of the system are determined by the product sizes and weights. Shelves and trays are adjustable to provide access to various size cartons.

Carton flow rack is a style of racking that uses a rear load design. Shelves are set at a slight pitch and contain wheels to allow for products to slide to the front of the racking automatically. When a stored item is removed from the front, the item directly behind it slides in to replace it. This keeps merchandise better organized and easier to pick because it reduces the amount of additional labor required when picking and stocking. Flow can double the inventory storage of standard selective rack and do it with a smaller, compressed footprint. It’s a compact storage solution that can go exceptionally deep depending on inventory needs.

Carton flow rack utilizes a first in, first out (FIFO) dynamic style of inventory management. This is because product is loaded into the rear of the rack and then slides to the front where it is first to get picked. Because only the front-most product can be picked, it is recommended that you store like items in a single row. This helps keep product organized and makes quick inventory spot checks very easy to accomplish.

It is considered dynamic because it is stocked from the back and picked from the front, which allows for no interference when both functions are being performed simultaneously. It also minimizes travel when performing either function.
