Carton Live storage or ‘flow racking’ operates on the same principle as pallet live storage, but is used for stock which needs to be hand-loaded and picked.
Inclined trays of roller tracks, set at levels in the storage bays allow goods to roll under gravity down dedicated lanes within the trays, from the loading to the picking face.
Carton Live storage reduces order picking times and minimises errors, as not only are items presented precisely at the picking face but also effective management of the throughput and stock levels of goods can be easily maintained.
Carton flow racking provides an excellent, labour and space-efficient method of ‘first-in, first-out’ storage, particularly in areas handling and using fast moving product lines, for example assembly, packing and despatch.
