Example push-back pallet racking

Costa Farms, a Miami-based producer and distributor of fresh produce, has revolutionized its operations with push-back rack systems. Push-back racking allows for efficient storage and retrieval of pallets on a sloped rail system, greatly increasing storage density and efficiency.

“Pushback racking enabled Costa Farms to store product more densely in the smaller footprint than selective pallet racking. This system was installed outdoors, providing optimal storage for plastic plant trays.”
