Carton Flow Racking
Put simply, the main advantage of carton flow rack is that merchandise remains better organized and easier to find/pick. With carton flow rack, the product is automatically rotated on a first in first out basis. The concept is simple and effective. Merchandise is stocked in the rear of the carton flow rack and moves toward the picking station in front on an inclined shelf equipped with specially designed roller track. When a carton is removed from the picking station, the next one in line rolls to the front. Carton flow is a great system that always keeps items within reach. Inventory is easier to monitor and control since products are fully visible at all times.
Restocking and picking typically offer the greatest opportunity for improving efficiency. With carton flow rack systems labor savings of up to 75% can be realized almost immediately. Because items are picked from the front and stocked from the rear, both functions can be performed without interference and with minimized travel.
In a static storage system such as standard shelving, the stockers and pickers are often doing a lot of unnecessary work, leading to decreased productivity. Although the static storage systems may be less expensive in the short term, in the long run they can cost you more than they initially save, especially compared with a flow rack system.
