Different warehouse situations call for different storage and workflow solutions. Many times high-density storage items don’t demand a first-in first-out (FIFO storage system) dynamic workflow system and
instead can utilize a first-in last-out (FILO) system. However, sometimes even with a high-density storage situation, you must still employ a FIFO workflow storage system. In that case, pallet flow racking offers a great solution.
High-Density Storage Solution
Pallet flow storage racks allow you to have a FIFO storage system while keeping your handling efficiency at a high rate, even with high-density storage. Pallets are fed into a storage lane directly from the loading aisles. When it’s time to access pallets they are gravity fed to the front of the discharge aisle. This eliminates the need to reach for pallets because they are placed on rollers, which allows them to easily move to the front of the aisle in the pallet rack system. There is no need to worry about the front pallet falling because the pallets gently rest against pallet stops at the front of the aisle.
Maximize Your Storage Space
Pallet flow rack systems are also great because they help reduce the number of aisles needed and they maximize your storage space, which is always crucial in a warehouse setting. These storage racks can even be designed to hold up to 20 pallets in a single lane, which means you’ll be taking full advantage of your storage space.
