Push-Back-Racking

Push back racking, is a pallet storage method that allows pallets to be stored from 2 to 6 deep on either side of an aisle, giving you higher storage density than other forms of racking.

A pushback rack system contains a pair of inclined rails and a series of nesting carts which ride on these rails. As an example, a 4 deep lane will have 3 nested carts. The first pallet is loaded on the top cart by a forklift.

When the operator comes in with the second pallet, they push the first pallet back and rests the second pallet on the middle cart. Similarly, the 3rd pallet pushes back the first 2 and rests on the bottom cart. The operator loads the last pallet by pushing back the first 3 and placing the load on the pair of rails.

This system operates on LIFO (Last In First Out) basis.

The key factor in recognizing a pushback racking application is the inventory mix

If there are several products to be stored that have more than 5 pallets per SKU (stock keeping unit), then pushback racking may be applicable for you!
