Carton Live Racking is a storage system that uses inclined shelves equipped with roller track beds to move goods by gravity from the restocking side to the picking side of the system.
Cartons are stored on inclined tracks with rollers.
When a carton is removed, the one immediately behind it gently rolls into position ensuring automatic stock rotation and that stock is always available for picking.
Carton’s are loaded into the back of the racking and retrieved from the front.
Restocking and picking can be done much faster.
The racks also keep people (i.e. the pickers) at a safe distance from the forklifts that are replenishing the racks.
Carton live racking ensures automatic stock rotation and improves picking productivity, simply by condensing the pick face and reducing the distance that order pickers need to walk when assembling orders.
