Carton Flow Rack

Carton flow rack is a first-in, first-out inventory management system for case, tote, and piece-picking applications. Watch this video to learn about carton flow rack including components, ideal uses, options, and accessories (1-minute, 29-seconds).


Hi and welcome to this edition of Total Warehouse Tutorials. In this video you will learn about carton flow rack.

Carton flow rack is made up of uprights, beams, and inclined lanes of rollers or wheels that allow cartons to glide from the back loading aisle to the front picking aisle. When the front carton is unloaded, the next automatically glides into picking position. This process makes carton flow rack a first-in, first-out inventory management option.

Because of this first-in, first-out process, carton flow rack is ideal for storing materials with expiration dates such as food and beverage, materials that vary in size as well as freezer or cold storage applications. Because products are continuously available to the pickers, carton flow rack is also ideal for high volume case-pick and piece-pick applications.

Options for carton flow rack include full-bed polypropylene wheels for varying carton widths and full-width steel rollers for consistent carton widths.

Accessory options for carton flow rack include guides to create individual lanes, and tilt trays located at the discharge end to allow for easy access into the top of a case or tote for piece-picking.

Carton flow rack provides high density storage. It can be utilized as a stand-alone system or integrated with various pallet rack types including a multi-level pick module.

That’s it for this edition of Total Warehouse Tutorials. I hope you join us for our next edition on mezzanines.
