Carton Live Storage (CLS) systems offer many benefits over static shelving including automatic stock rotation and improved picking productivity.

By condensing the pick face and reducing the distance order pickers need to walk when assembling orders, Carton Live Storage helps you save space and time.

Cartons are stored on inclined tracks with rollers. When a carton is removed, the carton immediately behind it gently rolls into position at the front, ensuring automatic stock rotation and the constant availability of stock for picking.

Colby Carton Live Storage is most frequently used to store fast-moving products that are picked as split cases. It is commonly combined with Colby Conveyors to further speed picking and packing operations.

Colby Carton Live Storage can be adapted to a wide range of storage designs using light-duty ColbyRACK frames with pallets stored above. It can also be part of a rack-supported Colby Raised Flooring system.
