Reduce costs and improve material handling with the right unit load design.
What if we told you that you could reduce product costs, lower packaging costs, improve material handling efficiency, and provide true environmentally sustainability when it comes to your shipments? In any supply chain, the pallet is the link between the other elements of the logistics distribution system, making unit load design a critical component to consider. With the right unit load design, you can drive down product and packaging costs while enhancing efficiency and environmental sustainability.
Some of the core principles of an effective unit load design include:
- Manual handling should be eliminated almost entirely.
- There should be a minimal number of handlings during the shipment process.
- All materials should be assembled into efficient unit loads for economy of storage and handling.
