One of our customers was struggling with loads of 5 gallon buckets shifting on the pallets. The shipments were going by rail, so there was much more vibration than normal. You can imagine the mess made when a couple of buckets fall off a pallet.
With the assist from a representative from our stretch film vendor we designed a solution. By taking several precise measurements involving both the items and the stretch film, we determined an easily usable pattern of stacking the 5 gallon buckets.
Palletizing products is a big part of what our customers do. If you have an issue with loads shifting or damage with items that don’t easily palletize, call your supplier for help, or give Shippers a call. We will analyze the problem and if we need to bring in experts from our family of vendors for additional help, we will do that too.
