When to Use a Drive-in Rack

Drive-in Rack

A drive-in rack allows forklifts to drive into the structure to store items as deep as the warehouse space allows. Unlike drive-through racking, a drive-in rack can only be accessed from one side, making it suited only to last in, last out (LIFO) storage.

Because it only allows for LIFO storage, drive-in racking has limited applications. For example, it is often used in large freezers with frequent pallet rotation or for non-perishable inventory. However, if you do utilize this storage method, a drive-in rack is likely the most efficient system to use, as it allows for high-density storage and faster loading and unloading.
