Quick Facts About Carton Flow
Carton Flow systems are a form of shelving that use a gravity feed rear load design. These systems are designed so the carton will always flow to the front of the racking system. Cartons are loaded from the back of the rack and picked from the front - as an item is removed from the front, the item directly behind it rolls forward in place of the previous carton.
Carton flow rack systems help the order picker accelerate the case and order picking process. In a typical rack bay where 2 pallets are normally stored you can create anywhere from 10 to 50 pick faces. This condenses the pick path significantly. Statics show that workers spend much of their time walking and searching for product within the warehouse - having a carton flow system will decrease travel time and increase productivity and efficiency.
Carton Flow systems can be retrofitted right into your existing selective racking system, with a very minimal installation requirement.
Budget numbers for carton flow depend on the size and weights of the cases. For a typical 96” wide by 96” deep bay, each carton flow shelf level can range from $300.00 to $600.00
