Drive-in pallet racking places the pallets in a
solid unit, as you can see from the photo. This means that space utilisation is increased to 85% and is one of the main benefits of using this system. This high storage density is produced by removing aisles from the rack structure. The problem of this is selectivity ie the first pallet into a lane will be the last one out. However many products are received and shipped in batches so dependent on your business this may not be a disadvantage. Standard forklift trucks can be used with good speed in a system like this, driving in and out of the lanes to pick and place pallets accordingly. This operation can be improved even more by using lead-in steel rails and steel guide / guidance rails within the lanes.
If storage capacity is your main priority within your warehouse then drive-in racking is a great solution. It provides a very high storage density and maximises space. It also has the added advantage that each pallet is supported individually so damage from crushing is eliminated.
