Warehouse Genius FAQs

Due to the low structure and the need for mechanical above, the current plan is to have a 10-foot ceiling in the freezer. The overall freezer size is approximately 21X76 feet, with an entrance on one side, and an exit on the other. To maximize the number of pallets, we have one aisle with pallets stacked two-high on either side using some sort of racking system and fork truck. Our pallets are 48.56 inches. I am looking for some suggestions for the racking and the fork truck that would meet our space requirements.
