Pallet racking is a system for material handling and warehouse storage that stores materials and products on pallets organized on horizontal rows, in multiple levels. The pallets are usually handled with the help of forklifts or with other types of motorized lifting equipment. The method has lots of great benefits for any warehouse – here are some:
- Maximized usage of square footage – pallet racking allows you to store pallets vertically, too, the method being preferred for offering maximized usage of the available space;
- Quick access to products – whether your warehouse uses a first in, first out system, a last in first out system or any other ordering and inventory control method, pallet racking makes pallets easy to access throughout the warehouse;
- Warehouse safety – the racks used by pallet racking systems are usually custom-made to meet the specific needs of the client’s warehouse, therefore the racking systems provided ensure the highest level of safety while moving pallets;
- Improved profit – pallet racking systems ensure accurate, up-to-date information regarding the inventory, therefore they make reordering and finding other efficient customer service solutions easier and more efficient.
