Benefits and drawbacks of Push Back Pallet Racking
- There is no need for a specialist forklift.
- Allows multiple pallets to be stored in one lane.

- Durability is improved as the operator does not need to drive in to the rack, minimalizing damage to the structure.
- The individual carts on the lane may need maintenance work.
- A loss of overall vertical height as there is a slope on the rails that needs to be taken into consideration.
- A larger depth of each bay means there will be a loss of aisle space.
How it works?
Push Back Pallet Racking uses a system of carts that surround the base of the pallet, stacked upon each other whilst each being on a slight incline this is what allows each pallet to push back on its own individual cart.This means the first pallet takes the position on the first cart nearest to the aisle, when the next pallet is ready to be stored it is pushed onto the previous pallet. The second pallet then goes onto its own cart and now the second pallet is closest to the aisle placing the first pallet behind it. Once all the carts are used up the last pallet takes the spot on the rails themselves as there is no more carts deep enough to back. When the pallet nearest to the aisle is removed the cart behind fills in the space, making it as easy as possible for the forklift driver to take the next pallet.
Saves time for loading and unloading times, each pallet has a designated cart.
Can store multiple pallets per level
When all the inventory is removed from the carts the all stack back up on each other nearest to the aisle reloaded and ready for the next use. Push Back Pallet Racking is a convenient way to store goods compared to those of a Drive-In Racking system in the scenario of a high rotation of inventory as this works on a first in, last out (FILO) system. Making errors is massively minimised by giving each pallet a dedicated lane to be stored in.
