Pick Modules integrate both Pallet Flow and Push Back storage systems. Palletized loads feed conveyors for full box or Carton Flow (or open box) picking. Pickers are continuously supplied with product (as lanes are loaded several pallets deep) and lift trucks always have openings available for pallets. Each works in separate aisles and in concert and without any interference for maximum efficiency.
High Pick rates can be achieved in full case pick-to-belt applications, where lift truck access for both Pallet Flow sides is from the replenishment aisle, keeping the pick aisle free from
any lift truck contention.
This Flow rack concept allows distribution operations to be consolidated into one facility, handling all of the logistics with a dramatic effect on lowering fulfillment costs.
