Drive In Pallet Racking is used for maximum space utilization. It is a first in last out ( FILO ) system and is best used with a large quantity of few products that are not time critical to best utilize space. Access aisles are kept to a minimum with drive-in rack achieving virtually double or more storage capacity. Drive In pallet rack systems can be designed to store 2 to 10 pallets deep.
⇒ How Drive-In Pallet Rack Works:
Drive In pallet rack systems store pallets that the forklift's drive into the rack system and load pallets onto rails. The drivers then remove pallets from the same entry point. Drive in rack systems are typically placed against a wall or otherwise closed at the opposite side of the system. Drive Thru pallet storage systems have the same concept although the forklifts can drive completely through the rack system. Seen in the picture to the right the pallets are stored on drive in rails that allow the forklift enough space to fit in between the system in each aisle.
⇒ Advantages of Drive In Pallet Storage Rack:
Drive In rack storage is not the best for selectivity or the need to rotate inventory because you have to unload all the product in a bay to get to the last pallet. The other negative is that if you do not have enough truck loads of like product you can get a honeycomb effect by not utilizing the drive-in rack.
