pallet rack comes in a wide variety of styles each with their own set of pros and cons. Selective racking is the standard, seen commonly in warehouses around the world. It’s affordable, reliable, easily available and can be found on the used market. The other styles of rack are often designed specifically for certain applications and are not as common on the used market. The price per pallet position is often higher, but the increased investment can be worth it for the higher storage density.
Forklifts rose to prominence during the World Wars due to a demand for manufacturing efficiency. Since then, the forklift industry has exploded and lift trucks can be found in nearly every manufacturing facility and warehouse.
