How a Carton Flow Rack Works for High SKU Traffic

Each warehouse and company that our project managers deal with on a daily basis have different needs. Our project managers get to know your business in order to discover which warehouse material flow system is right for you, creating a system that helps you save space and increase workflow. For warehouses with high SKU traffic, a carton flow rack may be the best solution for your pick/pack workers.

A carton flow rack helps keep cartons of items moving efficiently through your warehouse. Our carton flow systems separate the stocking and picking teams so they won’t interfere with each other and slow down work. Cartons are being continuously pushed the front to supply workers, so they won’t have to stop picking orders in order to move boxes to the front of their line. If you aren’t currently using a carton flow rack in your warehouse, you’ll be amazed at how it can make a difference in your labor costs and efficiency.

If you want to find out more about our carton flow rack and if it’s the right choice for your business, get in touch with a DAK Equipment & Engineering project manager. They’ll work with you to find the right solutions, whether that’s a carton flow rack or one of our other material handling options. Our project managers can help with your warehouse design as well as the installation of your new system.

Could Pallet Racks Cut Back On Sick Days?

A warehouse can be a dangerous place if the right systems and safety precautions aren’t put into place. One of the best things you can do for your employees is to ensure that the equipment they are working with every day is safe, secure, and quality. This can decrease the chances that they’ll experience an accident on the job, which can cut back on the amount of missed time your employees take each year. It all starts with the right pallet racks in your Chicago area business.

Pallet racks are often the first stop for merchandise coming into your warehouse and the first stop for employees seeking the right materials to fulfill orders from your customers. Your pallet racks get a lot of use and they should be able to stand up the repeated use over years–even decades. Setting up your warehouse with the right pallet racks in the right configuration for your space will help keep your employees safe. That reduction in on-site accidents can have a positive impact on your bottom line.

Don’t overlook the importance of your equipment when it comes to keeping your team safe. Get the best equipment possible for your business by contacting the DAK Equipment & Engineering team. Our project managers will help you find the right systems for your particular warehouse as well as the systems that will help your employees work more efficiently while increasing your safety.
