Push Back Racking
First-In Last-Out Storage
Push Back is used as an alternative to Drive-In systems where there are insufficient homogenous pallets for a Drive-In system to operate successfully. It can offer high-density storage with different pallet types being stocked at each level, but operates on First-In Last-Out (FILO) principles.
Push Back Racking Applications
Push Back Racking is used with a cart system up to 5 pallets deep and used with various pallet sizes. Carts are colour coded to aid stock control and identify empty locations.
Push Back Racking Advantages
- High density storage with different pallet types
- Operates on First-In Last-Out (FILO) principles
- More picking faces as each lane can be used to store different commodities
Most Suitable for:
An alternative to Double deep or Drive-In. Can provide storage locations for products that have average stock holding of 4-5 pallets This is a favoured storage system for small cold store operations with small chambers and a single access aisle.
