Food & Beverage
At AK, our Design Group has years of experience managing applications with complicated requirements and guidelines. The food and beverage industry is no exception as we have completed projects with challenges such as high SKU counts, strict sanitary requirements, quick inventory replacement, cooler and freezer applications, and much more. Our work can be found in grocery chains, food process facilities, cold storage buildings, food banks, and distribution centers throughout the country.
Commonly Used Systems
Drive In Pallet Racking
Often used in applications where large amounts of the same product are stored and pulled. Ideal for truckloads of products.
Push Back Pallet Racking
A type of LIFO high-density storage. Lanes need to be cleared out prior to being reloaded for FIFO.
Pallet Flow Racking
Used if FIFO is required. Two aisles are required: the load end and the discharge end.
Carton Flow Racking
Works well in pick modules in both food and beverage and offers FIFO and high-density storage as well as selectivity.
Selective Pallet Racking
The most versatile option, in that it can be used in all temperatures and features the most selectivity. However, it offers the least density.
