When Choosing Used Warehouse Shelving, Consider Different LIFO vs. FIFO Options
If you’re looking into used warehouse shelving for your facility, one of the most important decisions to make is the orientation of how stock is added and removed from the shelves. You can either choose last-in, first-out (LIFO) shelves, which are designed for placing and removing stock from the same side, or first-in, first-out (FIFO) shelves, which are arranged to allow adding stock on one side and removing it from the other.
The type of inventory you need your warehouse shelving for will help you determine what orientation you need. For instance, LIFO shelving is helpful for stocking products that take up a lot of room and last a long time, allowing you to save space by only needing to access them from one side. On the other hand, anything with a shorter shelf life, such as food or soft woods, will be better in a FIFO arrangement to easily cycle out items that have been stored longer.
