Pushback rack systems are ideal for warehouses that store a high volume of product, multiple pallets per SKU, and a high volume of turnover. The biggest advantage of push back racking is its ability to offer both selectivity (access to different pallets/SKU's) and storage density by storing multiple pallets per position. 

How it works:

  •  Push back racking store pallets on wheeled carts that rest in rails, utilizing the force of gravity.
  • Tilted towards the unloading end of the rack, this enables the forklift operator to load pallets onto the carts, and push them back as the next pallet is loaded.

90% more storage than standard selective racks


  •  High-density storage
  • Allows for storage of more SKU's
  • Can range from two to six pallets deep 
  • Can accommodate a wide range of pallet sizes and styles
  • Because each lane operates independently, push back pallet storage offers a more flexible pallet storage option than Drive-In racking, which is best for storing many pallets of only a few SKU's.
  • Higher productivity can be achieved as forklifts can store and retrieve pallets quicker than drive-in rack 


  •  LIFO (Last in First Out) storage system 
  • Standard GMA pallets are typically required unless you choose full deck carts that are much more expensive
