The drive in storage system is a high-density storage solution, offering cost-effective, high-density storage. It maximizes available space and height in the warehouse by reducing the forklift operating aisles. Drive in/drive through racking system is used with forklifts and pallet jacks. The loads are supported by rails that are attached to upright frames. Lift trucks enter from either side to access pallets through the uprights.
Drive through storage system uses the LIFO method for picking inventory – last in, first out. Similarly, drive-thru racking provides good storage capacity but allows access from both ends. Drive through racking uses the FIFO method of retrieval – first in, first out. Both drive-in and drive-thru racks make efficient use of storage space. They are made up of an easy-to-assemble and -reset modular structure, which makes it easy to maintain. This compact system is appropriate where space utilization is more important than the selectivity of stored loads.
Drive in storage system is installed in warehouses and distribution centers that need a cost-effective, high-density storage solution for their pallets and products. With the drive-in racking system, pallets are placed so they can slide backward on a rail, thus storing them more deeply and creating more space in the warehouse. It is the optimal and most common pallet storage system when you need to store homogeneous products with a large number of pallets of the same reference.
