Why Drive-in Racks?

Many businesses are in tough competitive environment and margins are getting smaller and smaller. Using the warehouse space optimally and utilizing maximum space combined can help with the competitive pressure. Traditional bulk floor storage requires steel or wooden stacking aids. They are attached to each pallet to make it stackable. This adds a significant cost and labor addition.

To access the pallets, Drive-in and drive-through warehouse racking require using forklifts to drive directly into the rack structure. The difference between the Drive-in racking structure and Drive-through is simple. Drive-in uses a common entry and exit. Drive-through uses entry points and exit points on both sides of the racking system. Here are the benefits:

  • Minimizing wasted space in warehouse
  • Utilizing maximum warehouse space effectively
  • Providing High Density Storage Solutions
  • Allowing for fewer aisles
  • Providing better cube utilization compared to traditional racks,
  • Allows storage of up to 75% more pallets than traditional racking.
  • Drive-in storage racks help a better setup than bulk storage.
  • With deeper drive-in pallet racks, you get better density of arrangement and you get more pallets per run.
