Selective Pallet, Cantilever, Flow, Drive-In, or Push Back: What is the Ideal Racking System for your Warehouse?

There are many options to consider when choosing the correct type of racking for your warehouse. While more than one option may work, likely there is an ideal option over the rest. Implementing the right warehouse racking system can help speed up productivity and increase storage capacity. Here are common warehouse storage systems to consider:

Selective pallet rack
is a durable storage system ideal for palletized products with no expiration date. It offers high selectivity and is available in various heights and depths, including double-deep systems.

Drive-in rack offers high density “last-in, first-out” storage and provides excellent space utilization. It eliminates the need for multiple aisles, helping to reduce overall square footage requirements. Ideal uses for drive-in racking are freezer and cold storage.

Pallet flow rack and carton flow rack is designed for “first-in, first-out” storage, making it ideal for materials with expiration dates such as food and beverage storage. It features an inclined system that allows pallets or cartons to be stocked on one side and glide at a controlled pace down to the picking aisle.

Cantilever rack is ideal for storing long or bulk items. Furniture storage, lumber storage, and piping storage are ideal applications for cantilever racking. It features arms that can be customized by the angle and load retention needed for your operation.

Push back rack is designed for high density “last-in, first-out” storage. It eliminates the need for reaching or driving in to the rack by “pushing” the product forward once the product ahead of it is removed.
