Benefits of pushback pallet racking system

The growth of my company has led to expanding our resources and streamlining productivity.

To keep up with demand, it’s necessary to be as organized and efficient as possible. The company now includes a warehouse to ensure that there is a readily accessible supply of products. It’s important to maximize usage of the square footage. However, simply cramming products inside would make them nearly impossible to retrieve. There would be the likelihood of damage. After looking into different types of pallet racking options, a pushback style system offered the greatest advantages. Pushback pallet racking offers high-density storage and contributes to more effective workflow efficiency, lower labor costs and optimum employee safety. Because of my operations need for last-in-first-out (LIFO) inventory management, this particular style is ideal. With LIFO systems, the most recently obtained product is the first to be pulled out. This works for my needs because the inventory doesn’t lose value over time. One of the primary advantages of pushback pallet racking is increased storage density. It allows access to inventory from the front of the rack and provides forklifts easy access to the closest pallet. Reducing inventory access to a single point minimizes the warehouse’s need for additional forklift access aisles. This opens up more storage depth. The pallet racking system I installed is capable of storing five pallets deep. Another asset particular to pushback pallet racking is maximum workflow productivity. Because the system offers direct access to pallets, the time devoted to retrieving inventory is lessened. Pushback pallet racks accommodate loading and unloading pallets via forklifts without entering the lane, increasing the speed of our processes. Inventory retrieval, evaluation and loading are all completed without delay, saving considerable labor costs.
