From FIFO (First In - First Out) to LIFO (Last In - First Out) applications, from the buffer section to the picking and shipping section – Interroll offers a wide range of products.

Pallet Flow
FIFO & LIFO

Pallet Flow FIFO
First In - First Out: Principle

In FIFO configuration (First In - First Out), the pallets are loaded in the gravity lanes on the entry side (the highest point). The slope then carries the pallets from the loading point to the retrieval point. When a pallet is unloaded, the next pallet automatically takes its place thereby ensuring that the goods are constantly available.

FIFO stock management guarantees stock rotation as the first pallet to be loaded in a lane is the first pallet available at the picking face on the retrieval side. This management method is particularly efficient for perishable goods.

  • Space saving: uses 50% less space than conventional storage systems
  • Low maintenance
  • No energy consumption
  • Long service life
  • Fast handling and picking: goods are always available at the picking place
  • No intermediate aisles: only one for loading and another for unloading
  • High profitability: ROI in less than 2 years
  • Low labor costs: fewer operators required
  • Reduced forklift truck operation

Pallet Flow LIFO
Last In - First Out: Principle

In LIFO configuration (Last In - First Out), a forklift truck loads and unloads the pallets at the picking face. This is a pushback system. To load a pallet, the forklift truck pushes the pallet at the picking face towards the back of the lane using the pallet to be loaded.

When a pallet is unloaded, the pallet stored behind automatically takes its place, thereby ensuring that the goods are constantly available at the picking face.

  • Increase storage density close to a wall or on a mezzanine
  • One batch per delivery
  • Easy stock control
  • Above Carton Flow FIFO lanes as buffer storage
