Pallet Flow

If you are operating a warehouse with conventional pallet racking and a fast throughput of stock, the pallet roller flow storage provides you the right solution to achieve increased efficiencies, such as: Space saving - maximizes available storage area by reducing the number of aisles. Faster throughput of stock with minimum handling – as goods move automatically from the loading face to the order picking pallet roller flow storage systems are installed in many storage applications and distribution centers, including ambient, chilled and cold store environments down to -28°C. The undisputed benefits are widely acknowledged providing one of the most compact forms of storage, requiring minimum handling, and offering guaranteed FIFO order picking and accurate stock rotation – resulting in many potential increased efficiencies. The dynamic pallet flow storage solutions are compatible with all major racking systems, worldwide, and we are here to help you explore the potential of introducing this pallet live storage system into your logistic supply chain. Whether you are distributing, buffering or storing, we have the right solution to improve your efficiencies with a typical return on investment of less than two years. face at a controlled speed on gravity conveyor beds. Accurate stock rotation using FIFO (First-In-First-Out) principles reduces waste of fresh and date sensitive products. Shorter travel times increase order picking efficiencies and improve productivity. Separate loading and order picking aisles ensure safe flow of vehicles and personnel.

First In - First Out: Principle

In FIFO configuration (First In - First Out), the 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.

FIFO stock management guarantees stock rotation as the first pallet to be loaded in a lane is the first pallet available at the picking face on the retrieval side. This management method is particularly efficient for perishable goods.

  • Space saving: uses 50% less space than conventional storage systems
  • Low maintenance
  • No energy consumption
  • Long service life
  • Fast handling and picking: goods are always available at the picking place
  • No intermediate aisles: only one for loading and another for unloading
  • High profitability: ROI in less than 2 years.
  • Low labor costs: fewer operators required.
  • Reduced forklift truck operation

Last In - First Out: Principle

In LIFO configuration (Last In - First Out), a forklift truck loads and unloads the pallets at the picking face. This is a pushback system. To load a pallet, the forklift truck pushes the pallet at the picking face towards the back of the lane using the pallet to be loaded.

When a pallet is unloaded, the pallet stored behind automatically takes its place, thereby ensuring that the goods are constantly available at the picking face.

  • Increase storage density close to a wall or on a mezzanine
  • One batch per delivery
  • Easy stock control
  • Above Carton Flow FIFO lanes as buffer storage
