Pallet flow racking is a type of storage system that uses gravity to allow palletized loads to move forward along a sloped lane for easy picking. Pallet flow racks increase product flow to a pick face and are ideal for first-in, first-out (FIFO) stock scenarios.  Pallet flow racking is a great way to maximize storage space for single SKU lanes.


Twinlode Automation designs pallet flow systems to meet specific client needs and analyzes inventory data to determine lane depths. Various options such as wheel type and size, wheel pattern configuration, simple braking or even heavy duty braking used in the deep lane system. Pallet flow systems are the ideal combination of flexibility and adaptability that can be used in both large-scale and small-scale operations for fast-moving, full pallet loads.


Pallet Flow Racking Materials


  • Structural or Roll-formed steel
  • GEN2 for facilities in zones of high seismic activity.
  • Galvanized steel, which meets requirements for the food and beverage and agriculture industries.
  • Single-wide configurations or double-wide configurations for operations handling two pallets at a time.

First-In, First-Out Racking Systems


FIFO pallet racking systems allow the first pallet placed in the system to be the first pallet removed. On a pallet flow rack, the pallet moves to the front when it is placed in a lane.


Applications for a FIFO racking system include industries that:


  • Have items with expiration dates.
  • Have a high turnover rate for inventory.
  • Need rapid inventory rotation.


Pallet Racking for High-Volume Operations


Pallet flow racking stores palletized loads efficiently by reducing the area required for warehouse storage. By using pallet flow racks to create a high-density environment, the warehouse’s storage capabilities and throughput improve.


Practical Applications for Pallet Flow Systems


Pallet flow racks deliver maximum high density and selectivity solutions. It can be combined with other systems already in place to create integrated warehouse applications across multiple industry segments. A warehouse can integrate pallet flow racking into other pallet or case rack types or a multi-level pick module. Pallet flow can also be a standalone system.


Pallet flow racks are ideal for:


  • FIFO inventory management
  • Limited SKUs


Benefits of Pallet Flow Systems


The pallet flow racking system offers many advantages, including:


  • Increased productivity
  • High-density storage
  • Quick pallet retrieval
  • Small footprint:
  • Reduced labor costs
