Drive In Racking is the ideal storage solution for bulk storage of palletised loads and can provide up to 70% more storage capacity within the same available floor space.

This is perhaps the most popular system of storing pallets where there is a limited number of product lines involved and a high volume of pallets in each line.

Drive In and Drive Through are different:

Drive In has a common forklift entry and exit at only one end, while Drive Through has entries at both ends.

Because a Drive In Racking System has one entrance it can be called Last In, First Out (LIFO) Racking. As there is one entrance, the last pallet stored in the bay is the first to be taken out.

With a Drive Through Racking System using two entry points, it’s called First In, First Out (FIFO) Racking. Using a FIFO system, pallets that are loaded in are pushed to the opposite end --The first pallet loaded in a row is the first to be unloaded at the other end.

The Drive Through first in and first out system is idea for palletised products with an expiry date or shelf life.
