Live Storage 1
Storage systems : Pallet & carton live storage

Pallet & carton live storage systems

Live storage systems are used when there is a need for high density storage of the same items. Palletised or containerised goods are stored on a gravity fed roller storage system that sits in a framework of pallet racking or shelving. The system offers the options of either loading and unloading from one side (LIFO - last in, first out) or loading from one side and retrieval from the other side (FIFO - first in first out).

The benefits of using this type of storage system include improved stock control (FIFO) and improved order picking efficiencies by condensing the pick face and reducing travel times.

The main types of live storage systems are:

Pallet live storage (FIFO)
The pallets are placed from the loading aisle onto rollers that are declined towards unloading aisle. The system can accomodate in excess of 10 pallets deep and is equipped with brake rollers to to slow the movement of loaded pallets in the system. A pallet separator is incorporated into the system to ensure safe retrieval of each pallet when unloading.

Push back racking (LIFO)
Push back racking allows loading and unloading of pallets from the same aisle. This type of storage system can be placed against a wall to maximise the use of available space and a forklift is used to load and push back the pallets. Push back racking does not offer natural stock rotation, but is ideally suited for holding or marshalling areas for finished goods awaiting despatch.

Carton live storage
This type of storage system works on the same principle as pallet live or push back racking with goods stored in cartons or totes. The loading of the system and picking is a manual process and it is oftern utilised in conjuction with pallet racking allowing the palletised bulk storage to be broken down into manageable pick faces.
