Dynamic Storage

Why Dynamic Storage ?
Storage cost can take up to 40% of the logistic cost, and 6% of the product cost. This cost needs to be monitored in terms warehouse throughput, warehouse running expenses, capital expenses etc.

The Advantages of Dynamic Storage (Flow Rack) Systems:

First-in, first-out (FIFO) inventory control.
Loads are transported, via the flow rails from the loading end to the unloading end of the storage system. The first load in is always the first load to be taken out. This constant stock rotation is especially beneficial with perishable or time-sensitive goods, such as food or pharmaceuticals, where a lost product becomes a lost profit.

Reduced handling costs
Once loaded, product rotation is automatic. The flow rack eliminates labor and fork truck operation to rearrange loads. Movement is by gravity on the Track rollers, requiring no electricity or other utilities.

Reduced handling equipment costs
Picking performance is enhanced by up to 65% because only two aisles are required, Fewer fork lifts, fewer operating hours, and consuming less fuel can accomplish the same handling function.

Time and labor savings
With only two aisles, each dedicated to specific functions (loading or unloading), traffic is more orderly, employees are more efficient and overall productivity is improved.

Space savings Aisle space can be reduced by 75 percent. Because storage density can be doubled, storage capacity can be increased within the same storage area, or a portion of your existing storage area can be made available for other uses. They are faster and more efficient than static storage.

Construction cost savings
By increasing storage capacity within existing facilities, the need for new construction could be eliminated. When new construction is necessary, building size and cost can be reduced by up to 50 percent. A smaller warehousing area, in turn, can reduce insurance, land acquisition costs, and taxes.

Operating expense reduction
Higher density storage and consequently smaller storage areas also mean less area to heat, illuminate, air condition, and/or refrigerate.

Flow storage systems have been successfully installed as a part of virtually every storage function, including raw materials receiving and storage, work-in-process, buffer storage, finished goods, order picking, and cross docking.
