Used Skate Wheel Flow Rack
Used skate wheel flow rack is a style of rack that uses a rear-load design, with shelves that sit at a slight pitch. Each shelf contains equally spaced skate wheels with no lanes, so products of any size can be stored. When a stored item is removed from the front, the item directly behind it slides in place 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.
Used skate wheel flow rack utilizes a FIFO (first in, first out) style of inventory management. This is because the 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.
This style of flow rack 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 because workers who are loading only work on one side of the rack, and workers picking items work on the other. This is compared to a static system where picking and stocking occur on both sides, which requires additional traffic and labor.
