What Is Racking?

Understand how Racking fits into the supply chain

Racking is a type of system utilized within warehouses to store and organize products on multiple levels. Racking can be single-deep, double-deep, push-back or drive-in depending on the size of the warehouse. Racking is a good storage solution option in situations or geographic locations where warehouse space may be more expensive as it might be most cost effective to utilize the vertical space versus the square footage in a specific warehouse.
