3D Storage Systems offers both standard Wheel Track and Heavy Duty Carton Flow Accessories that provide the ultimate in abuse resistance and flexibility. We pride ourselves on having one of the most durable Carton Flow Racks available.
Carton flow is a storage method that uses wheels or rollers, as well as gravity to convey cases from one end of a rack or shelving module to the other.
In a given storage bay you can create multiple levels of carton flow racks (also known as case flow racks), and each level will have a number of lanes of product, thus giving many more pick faces when compared to standard rack or shelving.
This reduces pick paths and increases picking efficiencies. As well, thanks to the gravity flow design, when a case is removed from a carton flow rack, the remaining cases roll forward to the front – pickers do not have to reach into the racking and First-In First-Out (FIFO) is maintained.
In general, fast moving products are picked directly from pallets, and very slow moving products belong in storage systems like static shelving. Carton flow systems and case flow racks are suited to the middle range of product movement.
As a rule of thumb, products that are suitable for carton flow are picked at least once a week, but not more than a half pallet worth of cases in that same week.
Gravity can be used to help pick orders with either full or split cases. Learn more about the benefits of using carton flow racks in your warehouse and browse photos of our completed carton flow systems.
