In order to ship multiple boxes of product safely and securely, logistics professionals typically make use of wooden or recycled plastic pallets to properly transport goods. The primary benefit of a multi pallet shipment is that while boxes can be lifted and carried individually with relative ease, stacking and securing boxes to a pallet allows a large amount of goods to be moved quickly and easily with a forklift. The savings in time and labor costs of moving goods by forklift rather than by hand are significant, given that the shipping space is properly organized. Knowing the cubic area of your loaded pallets is helpful for organizing your warehouse, and estimating how much product will fit in a container or truck.
If you need pallets you can choose from new pallets or recycled pallets, there are lots of pallet service businesses throughout the country that will usually offer both types of pallets, it’s up to you which you prefer to use. In order to find a pallet supplier the best thing to do is to search online for a local supplier, when searching for a local company it’s always best to include the town or city you are in within your search terms, for example if you live in North Carolina you should type something like pallet services North Carolina into your browser, once you hit the return key your browser will then display a list of companies that offer this type of service in North Carolina. You may find that some of them aren’t necessarily in North Carolina but have still be displayed in your results, this is normally because they offer a countrywide service or perhaps they have multiple depots and do have one near North Carolina, that being said if you notice that their address isn’t local to you it’s always best to check with them directly before ordering anything online.
