The Drive-In Drive-Through APR provides you with maximum storage capacity using the minimum amount of space. It is particularly suited for the storage of very large quantities of the same product. This system consists of continuous rows of racking with no aisle in between. Loading and unloading are facilitated by means of counter balance or lift trucks, which can drive into the racks.
For Drive-In racking, picking and deposit is done from one side only, while for Drive-Through racking offers the advantage that picking and deposit can take place independent of each other.
