Drive-In / Drive-Thru pallet rack applications offer a cost effective solution to high-density storage. These static systems have rails running the depth of the rack for pallet placement. The only limitation to the depth of pallet storage is the available space and application. The rack depth reduces the need for aisles and drastically increases cubed space utilization.
HCM Systems utilizes Drive-In pallet rack for Last In First Out (LIFO) applications. An entire bay, top to bottom and back to front, are typically a single SKU and expiration of the product is typically not an issue. Drive-In pallet rack has one put away entry side and the same for retrieval.
