High cube warehouses have EMT secured to the rack uprights, protected from any physical damage. The furniture is placed where the outlets are located. EMT for data also.
NEC 400.8, and 400.7 is where to look.
I accept, depending on the individual job, a twistlock receptacle at the bar joists, a kellems, and a TL male cap with a compliant device on the 'user' end of the cord. (Basically an 'extension cord)
Cord drops are an item that has been debated for a long, long time. IMHO, talk to your local AHJ, before you start.
