While the microbrewery trend continues, beer wholesalers and distributors face some great opportunities and equally tough challenges; how to accommodate a growing number of SKUs in numerous keg sizes while maintaining pick rates, all within the limited space of a keg storage room?
Gravity fed keg flow is the answer. Keg flow provides dense, multi-level keg storage – up to 8 kegs deep and 8 kegs wide per 96″ bay – accommodating all keg types and sizes. Each lane can store a unique SKU and be designed to support first-in, first-out (FIFO) inventory rotation with separate load and pick aisles or first-in, last-out (FILO) rotation consistent with a push-back configuration. Keg flow optimizes space and provides needed selectivity while reducing travel time for increased productivity.
Our keg flow roller options are designed around the keg spec; roller width is typically ½” wider than the diameter of the keg. Kegs sit relatively low in the lane and are guided by side rails that vary in height depending on the size and height of the keg.
