When researching pallet racking or shelving storage systems, people often use the words ‘racking’ and shelving’ interchangeably – but they are two different systems with different functions.

What kind of options should you be considering? Are you interested in new or used pallet racking? Do you have to worry about permits and getting your racking solution inspected? And what's this about making sure that your pallet racks are "seismically certified"?
