Push Back Racking


Push back racking is similar to drive-in racking, but the product comes to you.  This eliminates driving into the rack to retrieve pallets.


Operational Considerations:


  • Advantageous for medium to low SKU counts, with medium to high activity and pallet in / pallet out.

  • Selectivity typically reduced by 60% to 75% vs. Selective.

  • Flexible - may use counter-balance or reach trucks.

  • Eliminates driving into racks, required with Selective.

  •  LIFO within the lane, but modified FIFO may be achieved by sequential picking of lanes.

Space Savings:


  • Overall storage area can be reduced by more than 40% vs. Selective, in a typical 3-deep back to back system.

  • While footprint is similar to Drive-In, utilization rates tend to be higher, resulting in even better space savings.

Cost per pallet position:


Approximately $156.00 to $194.00 ( 2 deep )
Approximately $218.00 to $238.00 ( 3 deep )
Approximately $256.00 to $268.00 ( 4 deep )
