Drive-in pallet rack systems store pallets 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 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 regarding selectivity or accommodating the need to rotate inventory because all of the products in a given bay must be unloaded to reach the last pallet. The other potential downside is the “honeycomb” effect that results from unused space in the rack. This occurs when there is not enough like-product to fill the entire system.
