RACKING - Drive In

Drive-In Racking is used where high-density storage is required. It is frequently used in facilities with a low number of product lines. Pallets are stored in a block system.

The trucks drive into the racking to load or retrieve pallets, which are stored on cantilevered rails running throughout the system. The first pallet in is the last one out - FILO (First in, Last out) unless a Drive-Through system is used whereby pallets can be loaded or retrieved from either side.

  • High density storage allowing a greater number of pallets to be stored per cubic metre that other storage systems.
  • Low stock rotation suitable for seasonal goods and fluctuating stock demand.
  • Ideal for cold, chilled storage and bulk storage applications.
  • Suitable for easily damaged or fragile loads which cannot be block stacked.
Forklift trucks drive into lanes in the racking specially built to provide support to the pallet along the pallet sides. This system can provide very dense storage capacity, often low in access and rotation of products. As the truck enters the racking, special precautions apply to ensure compatibility of design between the truck, pallet, load and the racking. Flat floors are advantageous.
Usually the rack design incorporates a stability structure at the rear of the rack and therefore drive-in indicates single access from one side. Drive through requires the same stability to be provided by a variation in design.
