Pallet live storage systems play an increasingly important role in warehousing and storage technology, as users recognise their potential for improving efficiency. In the past, pallet live storage was mainly installed as a buffer store in the production area as well as in warehouses and despatch areas. Today, there is a strong tendency towards using the pallet live storage system for order picking because the FIFI principle is strictly main-tained. An equally interesting option is push-back pallet racking which allows compact storage according to the LIFO principle.
The system specific compact lane configuration in with as well as in height results in a high storage density and thus in an optimum utilisation of available warehouse volume.
With pallet live storage, floor space utilisation is 60% higher than with conventional racking. Moreover, constant availability of stock avoids idle times.
