DR Storage Systems is a supplier of Pallet Flow Industrial Racks.
Pallet flow racking, also known as gravity flow racking or dynamic racking, offers several advantages for warehouse and distribution center operations. Here are some key benefits of pallet flow racking:
- FIFO Inventory Management: With Interoll’s Pallet Flow FIFO configuration (First-In First-Out), pallets are loaded in the gravity lanes on the entry side (the highest point). The slope then carries the pallets from the loading point to the retrieval point. When a pallet is unloaded, the next pallet automatically takes its place thereby ensuring that the goods are constantly available.
- High Storage Density: Pallet flow racking maximizes storage density by utilizing deep lanes with multiple pallets stored in a single bay. It enables efficient use of available space, allowing you to store a large number of pallets while minimizing aisle space.
- Improved Productivity: Pallet flow racking enhances picking efficiency and productivity. The system enables a continuous flow of pallets, reducing the need for forklift travel and manual handling of pallets. This streamlines order picking and replenishment processes, allowing for faster and more efficient operations.
- Selectivity and Accessibility: While pallet flow racking provides high-density storage, it also offers selectivity and accessibility to individual pallets. Each lane can be dedicated to a specific SKU or product, ensuring easy access to different items within the same system. This is particularly useful when dealing with a large number of SKUs or when order fulfillment requires access to specific pallets.
- Reduced Damage and Improved Safety: Pallet flow racking minimizes the risk of product damage compared to traditional rack systems. The flow motion of pallets eliminates the need for forklift operators to enter the rack system, reducing the potential for accidental collisions and impacts. This enhances safety in the warehouse environment and protects both employees and products.
- Space Optimization: Pallet flow racking optimizes warehouse space by utilizing a dynamic storage system. It eliminates the need for multiple aisles, as pallets flow smoothly on inclined roller tracks. This allows for better space utilization, increased storage capacity, and potential floor space savings.
- Compatibility with Automation: Pallet flow racking can be integrated with automated systems, such as conveyor systems or robotic picking systems. This enables seamless material handling and order fulfillment, further enhancing efficiency, accuracy, and overall operational productivity.
