What are the two main types of drive in racking?

There are two main storage types for drive in racking: “drive in” and “drive through” pallet racking. Both can be excellent storage solutions depending on your needs.

Drive in pallet racking (Last in-First out)

This is the most common compact racking system and allows a single access point for forklifts. It uses the ‘last on-first out’ method, so the last load is always the first one accessed/removed.


Ideal for space maximisation as you only require one truck operating aisle, leaving more space for storage.

Drive through pallet racking (First in-First out)

The drive through racking solution requires two access lanes for trucks at each side of the racking, one for loading and one for unloading. Using the ‘first in-first out’ method, stock stored on this racking is always removed in the order it went in.


Perfect for rotating perishable stock with a shelf life, or simply ensuring no pallets get forgotten in the ends of racking

Who do we recommend drive in racking for?

The main advantages of ‘Drive in’ or ‘Drive through’ racking systems are their highly efficient optimisation of space and great stock control, making them a very popular solution for anyone looking to make the most of space and maintain good stock rotation.

With the flexibility to change configurations, maximise floor and storage space and an easy-to-install modular structure, drive in racking can be perfect solution for any business looking to maximise space and improve operating efficiencies.
