Continuing our discussion from last week’s blog…

Benefits of Push Back Pallet Racks

Push back pallet racks are beneficial because they allow you to store up to 90% more product while still being able to easily and quickly access a diverse range of SKUs. This means that your picking rates will increase, in turn increasing warehouse productivity. In addition, the interlocking carts used in this system keep products from becoming jammed or damaged. You are also preventing damage by keeping the forklift from driving into the pallet racks.

The push back pallet rack system is easy to install and modify, and it also requires little maintenance because none of the components rely on a power source; it is all gravity-powered. Additionally, you can use any type of forklift with push back pallet racks. Many different industries make use of push back pallet racking, including food and beverage, printing, distribution, medical, automotive, and manufacturing.

While push back pallet racks are excellent for high-density storage, this system does have a couple of disadvantages. Push back pallet racking is only conducive to the last in, first out (LIFO) storage method, not the first in, first out (FIFO) method. This pallet racking system can also be more costly than other methods. Despite these drawbacks, push back pallet racks are a great system to use in many applications.
