Warehouses and distribution centers worldwide use pallet racking more than any other type of equipment for their palletized product storage. Pallet racks help you control the distribution and storage of your palletized inventory and improve your profitability by creating a more efficient and effective workspace.
Pallet racking systems are great for maximizing the space in your warehouse. With capacity enough to handle the heaviest loads, they make it easy to store and organize your entire inventory, allowing you to store items off the floor where they are safe and sound.

Simply Rack offers an extensive line of both new and used pallet racking systems.
Selective pallet racks
This is the most common type of racking system. Selective pallet racks are made of uprights and beams, though additional components can include wire decking, pallet supports, column protectors, and row spacers.
Compared to other types of racking, selective pallet racking has a lower storage capacity; however, it is also the most economical type of racking per square meter – unless you are storing high volumes of inventory (3000 pallets or more) then it could well be the most expensive solution.
Advantages of selective pallet racks include:
- Direct access to each pallet
- Good for low volume or high differentiation product lines
- Use standard forklifts for access
- Front-loaded racking
Push-back racks are great space savers and are super easy to use. As the first pallet is placed on the rack, it sits on the first cart. When the second pallet is loaded, the first is pushed back by one position. Depending on the size of the push-back racks you purchase, you can have a capacity of up to six pallets deep. When pallets are removed by the forklift, the next pallet slides forward for easy access.
Some of the advantages of push-back racks:
- A superior space-saving strategy
- Can be combined with a wide range of other racking systems
- Faster to load than other pallet rack systems
- Great visibility of stock for warehouse staff
- High-density storage
- More faces, fewer aisles
- No special lifts required!
Pallet flow racks are incredibly versatile and ideal for high-volume, fast-moving product storage situations. As a gravity-fed pallet flow rack system, it helps you cut warehouse costs and saves valuable space. Shelves are inclined, leveraging gravity to put palletized loads into the ideal position for picking. The product is loaded from one side and picked from the other.
Some of the advantages to pallet flow rack systems include:
- Great for high-volume storage
- 20-pallet deep capacity
- Single loading and unloading points
- Can be combined with existing pallet racking systems
Drive-in pallet racks are the racking systems of choice when warehousing items that have a long shelf life. These cost-effective solutions can help you increase your storage capacity by up to 75 percent. Drive-in pallet racking systems are ideal for items that don’t require immediate access, cold storage, freezer storage, large amounts of similar products, or fragile products that cannot be stacked.
Advantages to drive in pallet racking include:
- Good for last-in-first-out (LIFO)
- Good for first-in-first-out (FIFO)
- Store items in less space
- Fewer aisles simplify forklift paths
- Same entry and exit point for each storage bay
- Store long-term items deeply
