Drive-in/Drive-Thru

Drive-In Pallet Racking

Drive InDrive in racking is used where high-density storage is required. It is frequently in facilities with a low number of product lines. Pallets are stored in a block system with two blocks generally served by one operating aisle.

The trucks drive into the racking to load or retrieve pallets, which are stored on cantilevered rails running throughout the system. The first pallet in is the last one out unless a Drive-Through system is used whereby pallets can be loaded or retrieved from either side.

Benefits :

  • High density storage allows more pallets to be stored per cubic meter than any other storage systems
  • Low stock rotation suitable for seasonal goods and fluctuating stock demand
  • Ideal for cold and chill storage and bulk storage applications
  • Suitable for easily damaged or fragile loads, which cannot be block stacked
  • 30% selectivity and accessibility of goods
  • Floor Area Utilisation: 60% or more
Adaptable : More usable space helps you adapt to stock fluctuations
Efficient Packing : Stack multiple pallets in single lanes
Cost Effective : Utilise existing space instead of renting more
Labour Smart: : Your workforce can work smarter – not harder


Common problems with non-drive in pallet racking:

Inflexible : Stock fluctuations often leave stock on the warehouse floor or out in the weather
Inefficient use of space : Paying for warehouse space that you don’t need
Labour intensive : Operating inefficient storage systems costs time, money and manpower
