Drive Through Racking Systems

A Drive-In System will definitely yield many more pallet positions than a Selective or Double Reach system (approximately 1200 vs. approximately 800 for the selective system, based on a building size of  9630 square feet, four pallets high, 10’ aisles). However, it again further reduces your pick selectivity and it offers little or no FIFO (First In / First Out) capabilities.  A Drive-In / Drive Thru system is an excellent choice if there are no FIFO issues, if you are storing a very limited number of SKUs, and if the pallet and load heights, widths, depths, and weights remain relatively uniform to allow for consistent load rail heights
