 Drive-in and Drive-through (sometimes spelled Drive-thru) are storage rack configurations that allow the forklift to drive directly into the lane of stacked rows (called a bay). The only difference between drive-in and a drive-thru pallet rack systems is simply whether the bays have an entry at only one end, or at both ends. Drive-in rack systems use a common entry and exit for forklift travel, while drive-thru systems have entry points at either end of the bay. Because a drive-in racking system has only one entrance, it uses what is know as  a LIFO (last in, first out) storage method. With only one entrance, the last pallet put into a row is the first one to be taken out. A Drive-Thru rack system, with two different entry points, can also use a FIFO (first in, first out) storage method. With a FIFO system, pallets are loaded in one end and are pushed back to the other end, where they are then at the front of the row on the opposite side. The first pallet put into such a row is the first one taken out at the other end. This system is advantageous for material with an expiration date or whenever shelf life is a major concern.

 

 

 

Types of High-Density Storage Rack

Within the class of drive-in or drive-through racks are several notable configurations - most commonly defined by the length of storage time and ease of retrieval needed for the product being stored (see figure 7).


 

One Way Drive In - Last in First Out (LIFO)
Material is both stored and retrieved from the same side (entry point) in several aisles. For this reason, the first material put in this system is the last to come out. This works well where shelf life is at a minimum or not a major concern. This system also works well in cold storage environments or warehouse freezers.

Two-Way Drive In - Multi First-In Last Out System
Arranging drive-in to be enterable from two sides allows for maximum space usage and easy product accessability from two seperate sides.

Drive-Thru - First in First Out (FIFO)
Free access from both sides allows materials to be stored from one end and retrieved from the other. With this capability, a first in first out storage arrangement is made possible. This system is used where there is expiration dated material or wherever shelf life is of major concern.
