Yellow and blue warehouse push back racking to help in choosing your warehouse partner

Push Back Racking (aka pushback racking) is an innovative storage solution designed to enhance space utilization and efficiency in warehouses and distribution centers. This system allows pallets to be stored from 2 to 6 deep on either side of an aisle, giving you higher storage density than other forms of racking. The pallets are stored on wheeled carts that slide on slanted rails within the racking framework. As a new pallet is loaded, it pushes the existing pallets back into the rack, optimizing storage capacity and accessibility.

Understanding Push Back Racking:

Central to Push Back Racking is its ability to store multiple pallets deep from a single aisle, reducing the need for multiple aisles and maximizing available storage space. This setup operates on a last-in, first-out (LIFO) basis, making it ideal for storing bulk products and items with less immediate turnover needs.


Businesses implement Push Back Racking to streamline their storage and retrieval processes. The system’s design facilitates easy loading and unloading, significantly reducing labor time and enhancing overall operational efficiency.


  1. Increased Storage Density: Maximizes warehouse space by storing pallets deep within each lane.
  2. Enhanced Efficiency: Simplifies the loading and unloading process, allowing for quicker access to stored goods.
  3. Flexibility: Accommodates a variety of pallet sizes and loads, providing a versatile storage solution.
  4. Improved Inventory Management: Although operating on a LIFO basis, it offers better inventory control for products with longer shelf lives.

Ideal Users for Push Back Racking:

Push Back Racking systems are particularly useful for:

  1. Food Distribution: Suitable for bulk storage of canned goods and non-perishable items.
  2. Retailers: For back-of-house storage where space optimization is critical.
  3. Manufacturers: To store raw materials or finished goods efficiently.

Push Back Racking is a high-density, efficient storage solution, offering businesses the ability to optimize their warehouse space while maintaining quick access to stored goods. Its adaptability, ease of use, and space-saving capabilities make it a valuable asset for industries looking to improve their storage practices, operational efficiency, and inventory management.
