An incorrectly loaded pallet is both cumbersome and potentially dangerous, so knowing how to stack boxes properly will go a long way toward making your pallets easier to store and transport. A good packing job, especially if the boxes are of different sizes, will also increase safety and minimize the risk of merchandise being damaged in a fall. Wondering how to stack a pallet correctly? Cousins Packaging reveals the best way to stack different size boxes on a pallet. Read the full blog to find out!
Before beginning to load a pallet, consider the size needed to carry every box perfectly. The pallet is the foundation for the load, so having the right size is crucial. A standard pallet is 48 inches by 40 inches. However, pallets come in smaller and larger sizes to accommodate the size of the load you wish to stack.
These steps on how to load pallets are essential to ensure boxes are safe during distribution or when being stocked for later access. Knowing how to load a pallet properly will provide a safer work environment for everyone who has to handle it. Stacking boxes correctly will also save you time since the boxes will be securely packed and unlikely to fall off the pallet and need restacking.
The final step is to wrap the merchandise to the pallet properly. You should always wrap a pallet to transport the merchandise safely and when putting it up in the top racks for a later time.
