Drive In pallet rack systems store pallets that are driven into the rack system by forklift operators and loaded onto horizontal rails. Drivers then remove the pallets from the same entry point at which they were loaded when it’s time to move them. Drive in rack systems are typically placed against a wall or are otherwise closed at one end of the system. Drive Thru pallet storage systems are based on the same concept but are located in an open area so that forklifts can drive completely through the rack system.
Drive in rack storage does not come without its potential disadvantages, though. It’s not the best option in terms of selectivity or accommodating the need to rotate inventory, because all of the product in a given bay must be unloaded to reach the last pallet. The other potential downside is that, if you do not ship enough truckloads of like-product, you can get a “honeycomb” effect by not utilizing enough of the racking.
