Drive-In Racking

The ideal high-density storage solution for warehouses holding homogenous stock of the same SKU on many pallets.

What is Drive-In Racking?

Modular in structure, capacity is maximised in part by minimising access routes, with the forklift driving in and reversing out to pick and replenish. An adaptation to this is Drive-Through, following the same principles with space maximisation. Both racking styles are a highly economical solution for high-turnover heavy goods picking for a range of industries thanks to the optimised space and reduced staff needed to pick the items.

Often referred to as ‘deep storage’, Drive-In Racking allows for multiple levels and deep rows of stock, using Last In, First Out (LIFO) stock replenishment and pick, which means little manoeuvrability is required of the forklift. The only special requirement of the equipment is that the forklift has a rotating fork to pick, as the truck cannot move sideways.

  • Easy reconfiguration – manual or mobile
  • Cost-effective solution for high-density storage
  • Excellent stock management
  • LIFO pick and replenish
  • Requires a standard forklift with a rotating fork
  • Economic high-volume storage
