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.

Save Up to 75% in Labor Costs with Carton Flow Racks

Our customers love our carton flow racks! There are so many great benefits to a system like this, we don’t know why more Chicago-area businesses aren’t using them. Carton flow racks are first-in, first-out picking systems that help keep your pick line moving. We’ve done the math and compared them to a static carton flow system, and our carton flow racks can save you as much as 75% on labor costs. That means these systems practically pay for themselves.

One of the biggest benefits of these systems is the elimination of conflict between the picker and the stocker. You can have one team keep the pick team fully stocked without ever getting in their way and breaking their concentration and workflow. Your pick team will always have the items that they need right at their fingertips, and stockers are able to clearly see what’s missing and what needs to be restocked. Both teams will appreciate being able to efficiently do their jobs without getting tangled up with each other.

This is the perfect solution for pharmaceuticals, beauty supplies, computer components, and other warehouses where you are splitting up pallets and dealing with cartons and boxes. Not sure if it’s right for you? Take a moment to call our warehouse experts. The Dak Equipment and Engineering team will help your Chicago area business find the right storage solution for your particular needs. Whatever it is, DAK has it in stock and it can be installed in your warehouse in just a matter of days. Get started with us today!
