ADVANTAGES OF RACKING SYSTEMS

Pallet racking systems pervade the logistics landscape. Scattered across the country in distribution centers, sheds and stores, racking fixtures of all shapes and sizes store goods for our nation. But, if you look carefully you will see that not all racking systems are the same. For those in the industry this is well known, but for the novice, it’s not so easy to spot the differences, let alone understand why you would use one type of racking versus another. To help understand what types of racking are available, when to use them, and when to avoid them, we briefly list each type below with an explanation, estimate of utilization and an indicative budget price to purchase (exclusive of GST). There is a sketch of each as well to assist in seeing how they operate. There are additional types of storage racking and order picking equipment. These will be outlined in subsequent issues. 1. Racking Mode: Selective. Features  Clear Aisles of 3 to 3.4 m for reach trucks or 3.5 to 4.5 m for counter balanced fork lifts.  Supports First in First Out (FIFO)  Most common mode of racking  Unfettered access to any pallet  Allows order picking at lower levels  Storage Utilization: 90%  I.e. for every 100 pallet places available, you can fill 90. When do you use it?  Where you have a relatively low number of pallets per SKU  When you want totally free access to any pallet, any time  When you need to pick from pallets at lower levels When not to use it?  When you have a high number of pallets per SKU and you are constrained for space  When you need to pick from more pallets than the lower level pick face will allow  2. Racking Mode: Push Back Racking Features  Clear aisles of 3 to 3.4 m  First in last out (FILO) for each slot  Can be three or four pallets deep, but commonly only two pallets deep  Pallets are pushed back from aisle by fork lift trucks  Pallets are placed on low friction carts  Used for full pallet storage only  Forklift drivers need to be careful when loading in an out to avoid pallet damage  Utilization: 85-90% When do you use it?  When you have more pallets per SKU and want to gain greater storage density  When order picking is not required from pallets within push back racking When not to use it?  When you need to perform order picking from pallets  When pallets are accessed frequently for picking and are then put away again  Where pallet to pallet contact is can cause damage to stock 3. Racking Mode: Double Deep Racking   Features  Clear aisle of 3.0 to 3.4 m  FILO for each slot  Pallets at lower levels must be on beams, and guide rails are used at upper levels  Need a fork lift truck with extendable reach and camera to assist the operator  Generally used for placing two pallets of the same SKU in each double deep slot  Can be serviced by reach and counterbalanced fork lift tricks and order picking machines  Storage Utilization: 85-90% When do you use it?  When you have more pallets per SKU  When greater storage density is required When not to use it?  When you need to perform order picking from pallets  When pallets are accessed frequently for picking and are then put away again  When you have lots of SKUs with single pallets in stock 4. Racking Mode: Pallet Live Storage Features:  Clear Aisles of 3 to 3.4 m for reach trucks or 3.5 to 4.5 m for counter balanced fork lifts  FILO for each ba  The fork lift drives down the lane of each racking bay to deposit or pick up pallets  Drive in racking emulates the operation of block stacking, but with the racking there is reduced damage to pallets and stacking can be higher  Can be up to 10 or 12 pallets deep and up 6 or 7 pallets high  Utilization: 50-60% When do you use it?  When FILO is not a problem  When you do not wish to mix SKUs within each bay/lane of drive in racking  When high density storage is required, (but be careful of the honeycomb effect) which reduces utilization  When staging of received or picked goods is required in a high-density format When not to use it?  Where order picking is required from pallets  When you are planning for greater than 60% space utilization 6. Racking Mode: Narrow Aisle Racking (Turret Truck Operation) Features  Clear aisle of 1.8 to 2.2 m  Emulates characteristics of selective racking  Turret trucks retrieve and put away pallets from pick and deposit (P&D) stations at the end of each bay of racking  Turret trucks require wire or mechanical guidance down the length of each aisle  A separate forklift delivers and picks up pallets to and from the P&D stations  Order picking machines may pick from pallets, but not at the same time as turret trucks  Only one machine in an aisle at a time  Utilization: 90% When do you use it?  When you have a high SKUs with relatively small quantities per SKU  Where you want good space utilization  When you have large amounts of goods moving and out  When you want to improve the storage density within your warehouse When not to use it?  When you can’t afford to two machines operating  When you have limited budget  When you have a high movement velocity and need two machines working in the same aisle at the same time 7. Racking Mode: Narrow Aisle Racking (Articulated Truck) Features  Clear aisle of 1.8 to 2.2 m  Emulates characteristics of ...
