Drive In Pallet Racking System Animated

Drive-in racking systems are a unique style of racking that is focused on maximum storage density and low cost. By design, pallets are stored one after another by a forklift operator deep in the drive-in aisles. The rear of the drive-in racking system is normally blocked off/inaccessible to forklift traffic. (This is what differentiates it from a drive-thru system.)

Due to the drive-in nature of the rack, loading and unloading has to be done in a “LIFO” (Last-In, First-Out) order. This is ideal for fast-moving SKUs or products with no expiration date. 



Drive Through Pallet Racking System

Drive-thru racking systems are very similar to drive-in systems with one key difference – the rear of the system is open to forklift traffic. This decreases the overall storage density of the system by one to two pallet positions but allows forklift operators to access both sides of the system. 

As a result warehouses with drive-thru system can operate in a “FIFO” (First-In, First-Out) order – ideal for products with expiration dates and providing additional flexibility for reaching your items.

I my old forklift finally died and I went to find an inexpensive used replacement. Paul and his team were so friendly and honest that I was able to make a purchase that day. He had his team totally service it and insisted on including new tires at no charge. On top of that he even paid me something for my 1969 Toyota Forklift which a hauled away. These guys (and gals) are great!

I have been searching for a company that would sell a lesser amount of pallet storage systems to complete my storage at my office. These folks gladly did so. I drove to pick up the components, they had everything ready when I got there, smooth pick up. definitely would recommend them and use them again as well.

What's Right For Your Application?

Both drive-in and drive-thru racking system provide superior storage density at a low cost. This can lead to a reduction in warehouse footprint and lower operating costs for your facility. Drive-In/Drive-Thru systems also simplify your storage locations by reducing the number of unique pallet positions and creating aisles of all the same product. 

Both types of racks can be customized by the manufacturer to meet your specific requirements in capacities, pallet size and more. The key difference between drive-thru and drive-in racking is the ability to access product in a “LIFO” or a “FIFO” order.
