Selective Racking

Selective Pallet Racking is the most common type of warehouse racking; it has the lowest pallet storage capacity; but is also the lowest cost per square metre of racking. However, in terms of high volume storage greater than 3000 pallets it’s often the most expensive solution.

Layout: Selective Racking is only one pallet deep; with a maximum of two racks being able to be placed back to back.

Pallet Access (FIFO) : Selective Pallet Racking provides direct access to every pallet in storage. For low turnover volume & high differentiation product lines this type of racking is a must. This means it’s a First In First Out (FIFO) racking type meaning the stock added in first is also removed first, compared to Last In First Out (LIFO) systems. Which means that pallets are inaccessible until all the newer stock is removed. FIFO ensures that perishable or short shelf life SKU’s are able to be turned over effectively. Read more
