Efficiency is the name of the game when it comes to distribution centers and pallet racking systems. This could be any type of distribution. Food and beverage, parts, raw material or finished goods. The flow of the warehouse is critical for maximum output and minimum starts and stops.
Commonly Used Systems
Drive-In Pallet Racking
Often used in food and beverage when multiple lanes of the same product can be pulled at one.
Pallet Flow Racking
Important when you have like products and want FIFO. Allows for the deepest lanes, without disturbing the system.
Push Back Racking
Used frequently when you have like SKUs and want high-density storage. There is usually a mix of these rack systems.
The least dense of all systems, but offers the most selectivity.
