Pallet Flow

Pallet Flow Racking:

Pallets are loaded into a storage lane from the loading aisle and flow downward on rollers towards the pickup aisle.  When the pallet reaches the bottom, it is held by a pallet stop.  As a pallet is unloaded from the bottom of the rack system, the next pallet flows down into place.  Pallet speed is controlled by the rollers and brakes.

Pallet Flow Advantages:

  • FIFO (First-In-First-Out)

  • Efficient Picking and Unloading
  • Immediate Access to Product

Pallet Flow Disadvantages:

  • High Capital Investment
