Drive in rack is a high density storage system used in warehouses to store pallets on a first in/last out(FILO) basis. Pallets are loaded and retrieved from the front side of the rack and forklift trucks drive directly into the rack's bays to get to the stored product. The last pallet loaded becomes the first pallet accessible, creating a more dense and uniform load in a confined storage area.
When compared to conventional selective rack systems, the same amount of storage can be achieved in a much tighter area with high density drive in rack. Drive through racking works similarly, but stores pallets on a first in/first out (FIFO) basis. Pallets are loaded on one side of the rack and retrieved from the opposite side.
Traditional pallet rack is a great storage solution for a wide variety of warehouses and distribution centers. However, if you have a lot of inventory that shifts on a regular basis, drive in rack is a high density space saving storage solution you may want to seriously consider. While traditional static rack storage allows for many rows of pallet racking with aisles between the individual rows, drive in rack allows for a much denser arrangement of your stored product. Drive in rack allow more efficient use of available space than traditional multi-aisle selective racks systems.
