Uses of Mobile Pallet Racking

Mobile Pallet Racking is very popular in close store applications where the cost of maintaining the cold temperature is high thus making the cost of the mobile raking to be much more economically viable. It is also used when 100% selectivity is required for relatively slow moving stock.

Drawbacks of Mobile Pallet Racking

[ultimate_icon_list icon_size=”10″ icon_margin=”5″][ultimate_icon_list_item icon=”Defaults-check”]The racks have to be opened to allow access to the pallets which can slow down the operation[/ultimate_icon_list_item][ultimate_icon_list_item icon=”Defaults-check”]Not suitable for a picking operation[/ultimate_icon_list_item][ultimate_icon_list_item icon=”Defaults-check”]The system is relatively expensive being perhaps 3-4 times the cost of a conventional racking system[/ultimate_icon_list_item][/ultimate_icon_list]
