Pallet Rack Systems to Maximize Storage Density
Of course, there are a variety of ways in which one can go about maximizing their storage density, but that’s a topic for another blog post. For this post, we’ll focus on pallet rack systems as a means of achieving optimal storage density. As you might guess, different pallet rack systems have differing levels of storage density. Just like pallet rack systems vary in design and function, they vary in how much product they’re able to store in a given area. A pallet flow rack system, for example, will be less dense than a drive-in system. This brings us to another factor for consideration, however: product flow and efficiency. A person looking to increase storage density by moving from a pallet flow system to a drive-in system may be disappointed to learn that drive-in systems are first-in, last-out systems, meaning they can only be used in situations with a low number of SKU’s and products that are able to sit in storage for long periods of time. Naturally, there’s a rack system featuring a combination of high storage density and an ability to produce high product turnover, right?
