by MHI Industry Group, RMI (Rack Manufacturing Institute)

Released at ProMat 2019, RMI’s newest infographic offers an overview of the different available types of industrial storage racking and decking. It also details the benefits of each type of equipment, and the breadth of resources available from the Rack Manufacturers Institute (RMI).

Racking, notes the graphic, delivers operations high storage density, high selectivity, high throughput, efficient picking and unloading, and immediate access to products—among other benefits. Decking benefits include pallet containment, small product storage, support for placement of irregular loads, and more.

The document also notes that pallet racks are among the most widely used type of storage solution in industries such as shipping and manufacturing. Further, it shares that the last decade has seen a total of expansion of available warehouse space by 1-billion square feet, bringing total U.S. warehousing space to 9.1-billion square feet.

RMI members represent the industry’s leading suppliers of industrial steel storage racks and related structural systems. They supply industrial rack solutions worldwide and in virtually every major manufacturing and distribution center. The organization was formed in 1958 and offers a variety of resources via its website at www.MHI.org/RMI.
