Mobile racking systems are a form of high-density storage for warehouses and deposits handling high volumes of stock, inventory that requires special ambient temperatures in order to remain intact, or both. In terms of storage capacity, this type of racking system is similar to push-back or drive-in racks. Unlike the latter two, however, moveable racking systems offer 100% selectivity.
As such, mobile racking is a suitable storage solution for inventory that requires both FIFO (First-In-First-Out) and FILO (First-In-Last-Out) management. In addition, it can drastically increase storage capacity in a warehouse without sacrificing accessibility.
Of course, like most types of storage, mobile racking systems are not necessarily suitable or cost-effective for all applications. In what follows, you’ll find additional details that can help you decide whether this is the right storage solution for you.
