Live storage racks are typically used for managing bulk selection goods as and when needed.  Racks may include cartons and other types of containers, depending on the onsite needs of operators. 

Carton Live Storage

Condensing the pick face and rotating your stock

Carton Live Storage (CLS) systems are far superior to static shelving in terms of picking productivity and the more efficient configuration of the picking face. The more dense pick face and reduced distances for pickers add up to a significant productivity outcome. Carton storage uses inclined tracks with rollers. Cartons instantly move to replace removed cartons.
