Pallet Live Storage (PLS)

AUTOMATIC, FIRST IN, FIRST OUT STOCK ROTATION

In Pallet Live Storage (PLS) Systems, pallets are stored on inclined tracks with rollers or wheels. As a pallet is removed, the one behind it rolls gently into its place, providing automatic stock rotation. Using the first in, first out (FIFO) principle, PLS allows faster handling and simplified pallet selection.

Replenishment occurs at the back of the system, allowing safe pedestrian access to stock whilst forklift operators continue in the next aisle, providing great WHS benefits.

  • Ideal for food and perishable items
  • Eliminates the need for urgent pick face replenishment
  • Provides first in, first out stock rotation
  • Allows high density storage, multiple pallets deep
  • Increases safety for pickers by providing pedestrian-only aisles
  • Speed control provided for long lanes

As with any high-density storage system, long lane PLS can be a great solution for chilled or freezer environments, and can even reduce energy costs as lighting is only needed at the front and back of the rack.
