At AK Material Handling Systems, we’ve been known to admit fairly regularly that pallet rack isn’t the flashiest product on the market. Even sparkling, brand new pallet racking is still a fairly straightforward tool for a very specific purpose. What’s less flashy than new pallet rack? Used pallet rack. It’s everything new pallet rack is, but older and previously used. And that’s just fine. This blog article, while it may seem like it at first, is not about poking fun at pallet rack. In fact, we’re proud to provide a product that’s widely used in warehouses across the world and is an integral part of the global supply chain. What it is about though, is used pallet rack and its potential to provide value for your warehouse, despite the fact that it doesn’t exactly fall into the “hot new item” category.
Of course, we’re certainly proud of the new pallet rack products we provide. But, we’re also keenly aware of the value that can be found in utilizing used pallet rack as a storage solution. As excited as we get about our new racking, the fact of the matter is that used pallet rack is a significantly better fit for many.
