As the unsung heroes of logistics, pallets tend to get passed by when credit is being dished out. Although they often don’t get the credit they deserve, these trusty servants of shipment are the backbone of movement in regards to getting a product from one place to another. We all have our own personal goals that we’d like to accomplish this year, but we also have our professional resolutions that we desire to achieve as well. This year, take advantage of pallets and pallet couriers to make your business even greater than it already is.
Prevent Product Damage
Although it may be easy to kick a product or two under the rug after it’s been damaged, it’s things like these that can hold a business back from growing. Failing to keep goods safe while in storage or en route to their new destinations can have major implications. The first step towards making sure all goods are passed on to pallet couriers in a safe and efficient way is to stack goods on every pallet. Depending on the pallet in use you’ll be able to create enough friction between pallet and product to ensure that goods do not carelessly slip off the pallet and become damaged.
When every pallet is able to be lifted by a pallet jack, product becomes easy to move from one place to another. Moving goods by hand can be a laborious process that will quickly lead to fatigue amongst employees. Swiftly moving product means that deadlines can be met on time leading customers to be pleased with their service.
Increase Storage Space
Pallets welcome the role of beasts of burden when in the warehouse. They have the ability to withstand large amounts of weight without breaking and can even be stacked, one on top of the other. More storage space means having the ability to store more product. The versatility that a pallet offers means that they can be constructed into vertical towers until the time comes when the product must be moved again. This luxury allows for better utilization of the warehouse.
Less Work Related Injuries
No matter the type of job, there’s bound to be some number of work related injuries. But when dealing with heavy objects the likelihood of an injury drastically increases. Take out all of the bone crunching lifting by placing products on every pallet. With all of the heavy lifting out of the equation you’re much less likely to have employees miss work on account of an injury.
