Carton Flow Systems
Carton flow is a gravity fed industrial racking system that stores multiple deep cartons in your existing shelf or pallet rack space. Made of slightly inclined wheeled tracks or platforms, cartons are fed from one aisle and flow to the opposite aisle, separating picking and replenishment activities to save up to 75% of labor costs vs. static storage. First-in/first-out (FIFO) traffic minimizes shelf time and keeps inventory fresh.
Carton flow systems can be designed to accommodate consistent or varying carton widths. Accessories are also available to enhance your system such as lane dividers, flow guides, and more. Apex Companies can engineer a system that will work for you today and be flexible enough for your future storage and fulfillment goals.
