Pallet Flow applies the FIFO principle (first in first out). The pallets are loaded on the entry side and the slope automatically takes the pallets to the next position.
FIFO maintains inventory levels and is efficient for products with a shelf life. Pallet flow is the most dense storage medium and saves spaces in a manufacturing or distribution center.
- Reduction in the number of lift trucks
- Easier to identify and store WIP or finished goods
- No energy consumption
- No down aisles / one side to load and unload
- Space savings
- Virtually maintenance free
The type of pallet flow is determined by pallet types, weights and environment.
