Drive In Pallet Racking System Animated

Drive-in racking systems are a unique style of racking that is focused on maximum storage density and low cost. By design, pallets are stored one after another by a forklift operator deep in the drive-in aisles. The rear of the drive-in racking system is normally blocked off/inaccessible to forklift traffic. (This is what differentiates it from a drive-thru system.)

Due to the drive-in nature of the rack, loading and unloading has to be done in a “LIFO” (Last-In, First-Out) order. This is ideal for fast-moving SKUs or products with no expiration date. 



Drive Through Pallet Racking System

Drive-thru racking systems are very similar to drive-in systems with one key difference – the rear of the system is open to forklift traffic. This decreases the overall storage density of the system by one to two pallet positions but allows forklift operators to access both sides of the system. 

As a result warehouses with drive-thru system can operate in a “FIFO” (First-In, First-Out) order – ideal for products with expiration dates and providing additional flexibility for reaching your items.

This is our 2nd time using Mid Florida Material Handling. Both experience were great. Material arrived on time and quantities matched what we ordered. We purchased previously used pallet racking on our first order and new on the 2nd. Both were top quality where we will use Mid Florida for future warehouse expansions. Top notch.

It was a great experience from start to finish. We were unsure what we needed to start but we’re guided through the process and ended up with heavy duty shelving that is perfect for our chimney inventory. Highly recommend!

I am a small business in Port Orange, FL that from time to time needs warehouse expansion that Pallet Racks have proven to be the answer. I have purchased uprights and beams from Mid Florida on two occasions and have found that their service and products have been exactly as they described and their pricing is better than I have found elsewhere. I will think of Mid Florida first in the future for my pallet rack needs or any warehouse materials.

What's Right For Your Application?

Both drive-in and drive-thru racking system provide superior storage density at a low cost. This can lead to a reduction in warehouse footprint and lower operating costs for your facility. Drive-In/Drive-Thru systems also simplify your storage locations by reducing the number of unique pallet positions and creating aisles of all the same product. 

Both types of racks can be customized by the manufacturer to meet your specific requirements in capacities, pallet size and more. The key difference between drive-thru and drive-in racking is the ability to access product in a “LIFO” or a “FIFO” order.

Mid Florida Material Handling has 40+ years of experience in the racking industry and has regularly handled large-scale warehouse pallet racking installations.
