Double reach trucks can increase pallet racking storage by up to 50%; however, it is best for applications that have a high quantity of pallets and a low number of SKUs.

Number of SKUs

Storing product double deep could decrease your selectivity because the forklift operator can’t access the second pallet until the one in front has been removed. For this type of storage to be effective, the pallets will likely need the same SKU. You must also consider if it’s an issue for the second pallet to sit for a longer period of time (i.e. expiring goods).

Common Applications

Double Reach Trucks are commonly used in factory, food processing and general warehousing industries. Common applications are cold storage and warehousing.

Conditioned air from the inside of the door that would normally escape when the door is opened is instead diverted back inside when it […]
