Slide-in shelf

Push-in shelving in logistics

Different shelving systems are used to store goods. One of these is the slide-in shelf. This dynamic shelving system is designed exclusively for the storage of pallets.

For storage, a pallet is pushed into the rack from one side. This has a slight incline. If the pallet is removed in this way, the rear pallets slide out again. This type of storage and retrieval can therefore only be carried out according to the LiFo principle.

If the import racks are long and deep, a lot of force is required to insert new pallets. The larger the shelves, the more powerful the forklift trucks in the warehouse need to be.

Advantages and disadvantages of slide-in shelving

Like all different types of shelving, slide-in shelving also has both advantages and disadvantages.


  • Optimal use of space and volume
  • Storage and retrieval are space-saving
  • Optimal use of pallet spaces


  • High investment costs
  • FiFo principle cannot be implemented
  • Pallets can get stuck and block the shelf
