Push Back Systems
Carts nest on top of each other and are pushed back as pallets are loaded.
Concentric Push Back Systems are designed for last-in-first-out (LIFO) applications. These type of systems yield a faster inventory turnaround and reduce aisle spacing. The Push Back Systems can hold a high number of pallets while maintaining a low number of SKUs. Nested carts fueled by gravity flow carry carts to picking position.
LIFO – “Last-In-First-Out” Inventory Especially beneficial if flowing date sensitive or perishable products is not critical.
Depending on the forklift capabilities versus the pallet load weight, Push Back Flow Systems can be up to 6 pallets deep. Low-profile carts help conserve vertical space within the bay.
Contributes to faster, more efficient order fulfillment.
Performed in less time with increased accuracy.
Less Pilferage & Product Damage
When pick faces are reduced, pilferage is decreased (less access to the product). Also, minimum product handling ensures less product damage.
Fewer aisles provide a safer environment for pedestrian traffic throughout the warehouse.
Reduced Overhead Expenses
Reduced warehouse space equals energy savings. Reduced number of forklifts equals lower equipment maintenance cost and also less space required for maintenance.
