Drive-In

Drive InDrive-In rack systems provide a low budget and high density storage solution for customers with lower SKU counts.  Drive-In rack systems load from the back to the front (First-In Last-Out) as the forklift literally drives into the rack system, loads the pallet onto rails and backs out of the rack system.  As the system is loaded rear to front, it must it be unloaded front to rear.

  • Description

Drive-In systems reduce the number of aisles required in a warehouse.  It is frequently used in cold storage applications, where the cost of (refrigerated) volume is at its highest and requires the most return on investment (more density).

Drive-In is limited by the warehouse management system and its ability to slot pallet locations.  In practice (because only a single SKU tends to be stored per bay storage), utilization is typically low due to honeycombing.  

Drive-In rack is subject to more abuse due to the constant movement of fork lifts in and out of the rack.  It is also a system that can require a pallet to be handled multiple times before shipping.  If multiple SKU’s or manufacture dates are stored in a bay, handling product multiple times can lead to product damage.

Determine if the Drive-In pallet rack system from Advance Storage Products meets your warehouse storage requirements below.

Advantages:

  • High storage density for certain product mixes
  • Low capital investment vs. other high density options
  • Very efficient storage (ability to store pallets back-to-back without aisles)

Limitations:

  • Inflexible, does not allow for SKU increase
  • Possible low storage utilization (typically 50% of positions used)
  • Low productivity (30% slower than alternative systems)
  • Requires standardized pallets
  • Risk of rack damage by fork trucks
  • LIFO - Last In First Out
  • Difficult to rotate time sensitive products

Typical Applications:

  • Manufacturers with limited SKU counts
  • Producers with limited product variation, date segregated production or batch production

Selective Pallet Racking Systems

Selective RackSelective Rack is a commonly used racking system, but not all racking systems are equal.  ASP's (Advance Storage Products) bolted structural pallet rack exceeds the RMI (Rack Manufactures Institute) racking standards of quality, long life and durability, as well as, the IBC (International Building Code) standards for structural design.

High Bay Storage

High Bay StorageWith the cost of land and building foot prints continuing to increase, warehouse rack systems continue to reach for the skies.

High Bay industrial storage systems can exceed 60' in height, nearly doubling the storage capacity of conventional systems (fully-automated and man up vehicles available).  Some of the racking systems available through ASP allow vehicles to be moved between aisles to reduce initial capital costs.

Pick Modules

Pick Module-Bay viewDesigned for high-volume applications, Pick Module pallet racks are designed for high-volume applications and are the perfect industrial storage solutions for full and split case picking.

Our Pick Modules can be stacked 3-4 levels high, often with conveyors integrated to the rack system.  Modules will often incorporate carton flow, pallet flow, pushback and other combinations for custom material handling.

Pick Tunnels

ov 20High-volume single level picking operations can benefit from Pick Tunnels racking systems because they provide superior warehouse storage density and cubic space utilization.  Reserve product is stored over the picking aisle in pushback or pallet flow and fed by lift trucks to the picking lines using either pallet flow or carton flow.  This pallet rack configuration provides high density storage, minimized movement of reserve product, separate put away and picking operations and high product throughput.
