Improvexs Push-back Racking system is a simplified version of the Live Pallet Storage System and is used in cases where FlFO principle is not essential. In respect to Drive-in racking, it presents the advantage of not having to drive the material handing equipment into the lane but storing and picking at the same front.
Ideal for batch dispatching in transit or staging areas of warehouses, it is also often used for fast moving storage and retrieval of goods in a cold store.
In LIFO configuration (Last InFirst Out), a forklift truck loads and unloads the pallets at the picking face. This is a pushback system. To load a pallet, the forklift truck pushes the pallet at the picking face towards the back of the lane using the pallet to be loaded.
When a pallet is unloaded, the pallet stored behind automatically takes its place, thereby ensuring that the goods are constantly available at the picking face.
