Every warehouse has different needs and fulfilment processes based on their product and end customer. Depending on your type of inventory and order flow, there are multiple pallet racking options to fit your specific needs. Take a look at our top tips below to help choose your ideal pallet racking system:
If you need to maximize your storage space, consider deep lane storage solutions such as drive-in, drive-thru, and push back racks. For hard to store items like wood or pipe, consider cantilever rack. These types of warehouse racks can increase space utilization within a warehouse.
If you require FIFO (first in first out), consider pallet flow racks. Evaluate your shelving units; buried loads can increase material handling costs. Selective pallet racking allows for direct access to any pallet.
Order picking depends on the type of product, how products are ordered, and how they are packed. Are you primarily picking pallets, cases, or by the piece? These aspects can have a large effect on which warehouse rack system you choose.
Additional wire, wood or corrugated decking components may be needed for further stability. Wire decks are the most popular and are used to stabilize products and pallets on the load beams.
Aisle width is extremely important when considering how to access your products via forklift. The type of racking and the layout will depend on the type of truck you are looking to use!
