You do not need to sacrifice selectivity for optimal storage density.
A push-back pallet racking system is a dynamic pallet rack system designed to maximize storage density while maintaining selectivity. It consists of multiple nested carts equipped with a roller system that facilitates the movement of pallets within the rack. The system operates on a slight incline, allowing for easy movement of pallets along the rails.
In a push-back pallet racking system, a forklift places a pallet onto a cart, which is then pushed back into the rack by subsequent pallets. As each new pallet is added, it gently pushes the preceding ones further along the inclined rails.
This system allows for easy loading and unloading of pallets, following the First-In-Last-Out (FILO) inventory management system. When a pallet is unloaded, the carts in front of it move forward, allowing the next pallet to be retrieved.

The push-back system significantly increases storage density by efficiently utilizing vertical space and allowing multiple pallets to be stored in a single lane. This optimizes warehouse space and maximizes storage capacity.
The push-back system simplifies the loading and unloading process by using gravity to move pallets. This reduces the need for forklift operators to enter the rack, enhancing safety and efficiency.
The push-back pallet racking system can accommodate various pallet sizes and weights, making it suitable for multiple products and industries.
By utilizing the multiple cart levels in a push-back pallet racking system, businesses can store more stock in a given space compared to traditional racking methods. The deep system storage provided by push-back racking maximizes the available space in a warehouse, allowing for more efficient use of square footage.
The unique pallet guidance system of push-back racking enables quicker placement and retrieval of pallets. This feature facilitates a streamlined workflow, reducing the time it takes for employees to access products and ultimately increasing overall productivity in the warehouse.
Push-back pallet racking optimizes space utilization and offers enhanced inventory control. With the ability to dedicate each lane to a specific product type, businesses can organize their inventory more efficiently, leading to easier stock rotation and efficient handling. This level of inventory control reduces the risk of product damage and ensures the accuracy of inventory counts.
Unlike other racking systems, push-back racking allows easy access to items. With pallets automatically rolling forward as previous ones are removed, employees have clear and unobstructed access to the items they need. This easy access significantly enhances workflow and efficiency within the warehouse.
Push-back rack systems are designed to provide high-quality load support. The robust construction of the racking ensures that it can withstand the weight and pressure of heavy pallets without compromising stability. This high load support capability results in a safer and more efficient storage option for businesses.
One of the significant safety advantages of push-back racking is that operators no longer need to drive into the racking to retrieve pallets. This reduces the chances of potential rack damage and minimizes the risk of accidents in the warehouse. By eliminating the need for forklifts or other equipment to enter the rack structure, push-back racking enhances safety and reduces the potential for costly repairs or injuries.
