Benefits of pallet flow racking
High density storage
Deep lane pallet flow systems eliminate aisles, providing more pallets in a given area. Flowrack systems can achieve 100% to 300% more density than selective pallet racking.
The first pallet loaded into a pallet flow lane is going to be the first one unloaded – pallet flow systems provide “automatic” First-in First-out or FIFO.
Because the pallets travel to the unload aisle, forklift travel is reduced. Deep lane systems that are staging product near the dock doors may be able to utilize fewer forklift operators than other storage systems would require.
Pallet flow can be designed for pick modules, layer picking, staging and deep lane storage. Varying lane depths allows for efficient layouts within your warehouse.
Reduced product damage
Most of the pallets are deep inside of the flowrack system, far away from aisles, personnel and forklifts. This results in less damage to product and fewer opportunities for product to go missing.
