Pallet stability is a key factor within your business operations.
If you transport any palletised goods, then ensuring your pallets are stable and packed securely is critical to your packaging operations. Where pallets aren’t packed securely, and are transported without adequate stability, then issues caused by this could prove costly for your business.
Unstable pallets can get easily damaged in transit. Damage caused in transit can be costly – causing damaged and rejected goods. This in turn leads to lost time and productivity in repacking the goods and therefore extra plastic packaging usage in doing so. Brand reputation as well as customer dissatisfaction, are also factors – not to mention the associated health and safety risks of what pallet stability issues can cause.
How can you improve your pallet stability?
Pallet stability is critical to efficient packaging operations, as well as preventing movement in transport issues, that can be hugely costly. There are, however, some very simple and effective products that you can incorporate into your packaging operations.
Caregrip Anti-slip sheets
This simple paper product, used as a liner between each layer of your palletised goods helps prevent movement and increases pallet stabilisation.
Cardboard corner edge protectors
Cardboard corner protectors offer reinforcement to your pallet loads, increasing their stability and improving pallet handling in transit.
The right pallet wrap is critical for efficient pallet handling, as well as secure and stable pallets. Using the right film for the right application, and using as little film as possible is crucial for pallet stabilisation and also minimising plastic usage.
