Live Storage Racks

When a customer places orders in bulk, they gain access to specific products, in a specific quantity, in their desired amount of time. Live Storage Racks make that easier. Carton Live Storage (CLS) offers many benefits that stating shelving can’t provide; automated stock rotation and enhanced picking productivity.

Carton Live Storage and its Benefits

Carton Live Storage can help your warehouse workers save time and precious square metres on your floorplan. The pick face is condensed, meaning that the pickers don’t need to walk long distances when assembling an order.

With Live Storage, cartons are stored on inclined tracks with rollers. After a carton has been removed, the one that is immediately behind it rolls gently into position and slides into the front spot. Allowing for automatic stock rotation. There’s no wasting time reorganising the shelf—stock is constantly available for picking.

Colby Carton Live Storage is best suited for the storage of fast-moving products that are picked as split cases. Commonly, it is combined with Colby Conveyors. This addition further speeds up the picking process and packing operations.

Pallet Live Storage

Colby’s Live Pallet Storage system can accommodate almost all types and weights of pallets. Palletflo technology has unique hysteresis properties, so it can handle varying bottom surface conditions, load weights, load lengths, and pallet styles.
The patented Palletflo wheel absorbs kinetic energy from the moving pallet. This facilitates the movement of the pallet at a uniform and safe speed. When it’s time for it to come to a stop, regardless of the weight of the load, the movement is gentle and safe.
Other merits include:

  • First In First Out principal (FIFO)
  • Fast operation
  • Reduced forklift use
  • Good for products where expiry dates are crucial
