Push Back Rack

Push back rack is a high density storage system where pallets are stored on carts in an inclined (pitched) rail structure. Only aisle facing pallets are accessible, but when that pallet is removed, all pallets behind it are indexed forward. Most common systems are two-, three- and four-deep, but select manufacturers offer five- and six-deep options. Each level has same number of pallets deep

Advantages

  • High density with minimal aisles
  • More selectivity than drive-in/drive-thru allowing for better inventory turn
  • Systems are available to retrofit existing selective or drive-in systems
  • Very popular in food/beverage/grocery industry

Disadvantages

  • Best in applications where you have multiple pallets of same SKU
  • Best when all pallet specifications are within a certain range
  • Inventory turn not as good as selective or pallet flow
