What is Drive-In Pallet Racking?
How does Drive-In Pallet Racking work?
Drive-In Pallet Racking Systems provide maximum storage capacity using the minimum amount of space. It is particularly suited to store very large quantities of homogeneous products.
Drive-In or Double Access Systems consist of continuous lanes of racking with only a single load and retrieval aisle. Loading and unloading is undertaken by means of counter balance or reach trucks that drive down each lane into the racks.
Drive-In Pallet Racking operates on the system of First-In Last-Out (FILO), therefore it only suits products that are stored in sufficient volume which require multiples lanes to ensure stock rotation.
