New Pallet Rack Systems: An Investment in the Future

There are two primary ways in which one can think about the pallet racking they use in their warehouse. One of these two ways of thinking about pallet rack is to think of it as a nuisance expense. Pallet racking, when thought of through this frame of mind, is simply an inconvenient necessity; a means to an end. Where you purchase, if you adhere to this line of thinking, really doesn’t matter. As long as it seems to be in relatively decent shape, looks serviceable, and is available at a good price, it’ll do the job. No matter if you have to replace it in a few years. You can simply buy more from the same auction or another random source you found the last racking at.


Then, there’s the other way of thinking about pallet rack.  The second of the two ways of thinking about your warehouse racking is to think of it as an investment in the future.  Pallet racking, when thought of this way, is not a nuisance expense, but rather a key tool in the long-term success of your storage and warehouse logistics strategies.  When looking at new pallet rack systems this way, it is natural to want the best racking available to fit these long-term strategies and the needs of your warehouse.  It doesn’t have to be the most expensive racking money can buy, it simply has to be a high quality product that will withstand the rigors of the warehouse for years to come while continuing to perform the duties it’s designed for.

If you adhere to the latter of these two pallet rack philosophies, you’re on the same wavelength as those of us at AKMHS. One of the things we pride ourselves on most is providing quality and value. Whether it’s in the form of new pallet rack, custom-engineered pallet rack systems, or warehouse layout and design, we want our rack to work for you, the way you need it to. We make sure that happens in a number of ways. One of these ways is by using the expertise of our systems design specialists to ensure you’re getting exactly what you need. Unless you yourself are an expert, you’ll be dealing in guesswork if you choose not to consult a professional before installing a new pallet rack system. Guesswork might be the way to go if you’re not overly concerned about the performance of your racking, but if you’re serious about your pallet rack, you’ll want to know exactly what you need in terms of size, capacity, and brand. Another way in which we commit to providing quality and value is by outfitting our customers with only high-quality pallet rack products, whether new or used. Because we believe in the importance of a safe, productive warehouse, we believe in the quality of the products we sell. The internet is expansive, and there are probably places where you can find cheaper rack than at AK Material Handling. However, you very well might find yourself paying the price in the long run as you find out your pallet racking is questionable in quality or doesn’t really fit the needs of your warehouse or the goals of your business
