When to Use a Flow Rack System
Unlike static pallet racks, flow rack systems utilize rollers and gravity to move pallets into position to be retrieved whenever one is removed. Like standard racks, flow racks allow for high-density storage; however, they provide added convenience to help businesses achieve a much more efficient workflow.
Flow racks utilize the first in, first out (FIFO) storage principle. This is well suited to most types of inventory; however, before making a purchase, be sure there won’t be a situation in which you’ll need the rack for last in, last out (LIFO), storage. Flow rack systems are also a great solution for warehouses with limited space, as they allow for more storage and reduce congestion during the loading and unloading process.
