Hundreds of Bays of Used Carton Flow Rack
Light Duty Carton Flow is gravity-driven and great for applications with a variety of SKUs. One carton of each line item can be located on the pick face which simply means that a large number of SKU’s are available to the picker within a small area. Travel/Walking time is drastically reduced which often equates to a significant labor savings. Order picking is done on a First-In/First-Out basis, which ensures inventory rotation. By Separating the stocking aisle from the picking aisle order picking is more efficient. The tilted trays /shelves in an carton flow system help improve visibility and order accuracy. This is often the perfect answer for split case or individual piece picking. Carton flow shelves often come with impact panels and intermediate supports which can help protect against shelf stocking abuse and prolong the system’s longevity. Carton Flow is often integrated with conveyors and other product storage solutions to create multi-level pick modules which enable the user to take advantage of their “cubic” storage available in their warehouse whereby freeing up valuable floor space for additional storage and better efficiency.
Static storage refers to using pallet racking or shelving for storing and picking products in your warehouse. Depending on your application, static storage can be VERY inefficient and labor intensive. This type of order picking will generally require up to (4) times more pickers and twice as much floor space as the gravity-driven Carton Flow system. This in turn can create stock rotation, inventory control and often times extensive order picking errors.
