How to Choose the Racking System That Best Suits Your Operation
To maximize product flow, the type, density and selectivity of your racking system should align with your inventory and picking practices. In order to maximize the benefits of your warehouse, you must understand the characteristics of all products that are being stored.
Below is an overview of each type of pallet rack system. For further details on each type, click on the racking type above.
First-in, first-out, or FIFO, product flow allows inventory placed into a rack system first to be removed first. FIFO rack systems are ideal for customers requiring rapid stock rotation or high product circulation. First-in, first-out systems include selective, drive-through, carton flow and pallet flow rack.
Last-in, first-out, or LIFO, product flow allows inventory placed into a rack system last to be removed first. LIFO rack systems are ideal for customers storing products with long shelf life or in large quantities . Last-in, first-out systems include double deep selective, drive-in, and push back rack.
