Conventional shelving

One of the most common types of warehouse racking is conventional racking, which is defined by having several levels and separation between each metal structure so that the operator can store and collect orders.
One of the biggest problems with these storage racks is the loss of an operator's time every time they have to store and pick up a product, which can also decrease productivity.

Compact shelving

Compact storage systems or compact racking consist of the formation of blocks of goods, mainly with homogeneous products and with low or medium rotation.

The rack itself forms interior streets where handling equipment, such as forklift trucks or elevators, are introduced. The main advantage of compact racks is that they manage to double the storage capacity, although they occupy much more than the Modula automatic vertical warehouses.

Dynamic Shelving and Push-back

Another type of racking in a warehouse is dynamic and push-back racking. It is a compact storage variant, which takes advantage of the force of gravity to improve storage and picking times.

Each of these types of shelves is differentiated by the type of criteria used. Dynamic shelving is based on the fact that the first merchandise to enter is the first to leave. Whereas push-back shelving is stored and collected from the very end of the shelf.

The disadvantages of this system lie in the limitation of the measurements of the load units and the limited number of references to be stored, an essential condition for the efficiency of this type of system.

Cantilever racks

The cantilever type of logistic racking is very suitable for bulky products and requires an aisle to access the racks.

Automatic Shelving with Modula Automatic Warehouses

Automated vertical storage systems are one of the best alternatives for conventional types of racking, which efficiently respond to modern storage and stock management requirements in the warehouse.

Automated warehouse management models such as Modula are designed to solve some limitations of traditional systems, maximizing storage capacity and adapting to the different needs of each warehouse thanks to its wide range of products and specific options to improve the productivity of the warehouse.
