How Does a Drive-In Rack Work?
With standard pallet racking systems, inventory is stored from the edge of the racking system using a forklift. However, a drive-in rack allows the forklift to drive into the storage system to store pallets. This type of racking system is accessible from only one side and should not be confused with a drive through rack, which has multiple access points.
Drive in Rack Applications
The first step in determining if a drive-in rack is right for your warehouse is to figure out what type of inventory you need to store. Because drive-in racks have only one access point, they utilize the last-in, last-out method, making them ideal for warehouses that require high density storage of non-perishable items.
