How to Use Push Back Racks? This dense packing is ideal for materials that lend themselves to a last in, first out (LIFO) storage plan. It is easy to pick the last pallet stored in a location since it will be in the outermost position on the push back racks.
Material handlers deliver the pallets to the location and use the forklift and the pallet itself to “push back” materials already stored in the location until the entire slot is filled. For irregularly shaped or more fragile items, we recommend the use of a pallet collar. This adds uniformity and stability that will help protect the materials, while still allowing the warehouse to achieve the benefits of using push back pallet racking.
