If you have a warehouse that seems to be overflowing with pallets then you might need some help with your storage plan. If you already have pallet rack storage systems in place, but you still feel like everything is out of order and that your productivity could be much better, then perhaps you should consider a drive-in pallet rack storage system.
What Is a Drive-In Pallet Rack System
Drive-in pallet rack systems are used when you need to maximize your storage space to its fullest. A drive-in system is a first in last out system. It is typically best for warehouses that carry a large amount of a small number of products. It’s also best used for accessing items that are usually not time-sensitive. Drive-in pallet rack systems also have smaller access aisles, which allows for more storage space. In fact, you can store anywhere between two and 10 pallets in each row.
How Do They Work?
With a drive-in pallet rack system, you can store pallets by loading them with a forklift. The forklift can then remove the pallets from the same entrance at which they were loaded. Again, this is a great application for large quantities of the same product.
Common Uses of the Drive-In System
Although the drive-in pallet rack system is good for many warehouses, it is not a perfect fit for every warehouse application. Some of the most common uses for drive-in pallet rack storage systems include:
- Small amount of SKUs
- Slow moving products
- Storage freezers
- Product storage that is not time-sensitive
