Drive-In Pallet Racks

Drive-in pallet racks are high-density storage systems ideal for handling large-volume materials thanks to their deep rack lanes. Drive-in racks can accommodate for last-in, first out (LIFO) or first-in, first-out (FIFO) inventory systems as they can be configured for front and back aisle access. Drive-in racks are equipped with horizontal rails that run the full depth of the rack and can store north of 10 pallets per lane.

The drive-in pallet racking system can provide the following advantages to your business:

  • They can maximize space. They are a highly compact storage system.
  • They can help you store more inventory. They can hold a higher number of pallets than other storage systems.
  • They adapt to the needs of your business. They have the flexibility to cater to LIFO and FIFO inventory systems.
  • They can save you money. Drive-in racks are cost efficient compared to other storage systems.

There are things to keep in mind before purchasing drive-in pallet racks. While drive-in racking systems provide many advantages, not all business models and warehouse structures will benefit from this option. For example, fast-paced environments with high employee turnover have to take into consideration that accidents and damages from negligent forklift operation will decrease the life of your drive-in storage system. As a result, further investment should be made to place column protectors along the drive-in rack lanes.
