What does Narrow Aisle mean?

In the shipping context, a narrow aisle refers to a storage facility design where the space between aisles is minimized to maximize storage capacity. Narrow aisle storage systems allow for high-density storage of goods in a small space. They are commonly used in warehouses and distribution centers where space is limited. Narrow aisle storage systems require specialized equipment, such as narrow aisle forklifts, to maneuver in the tight spaces between aisles. The benefits of narrow aisle storage systems include increased storage capacity, reduced storage costs, and improved inventory control.
