How To Palletized Cardboard Boxes?

Nowadays, most of our goods are shipped in cartons. The easiest way to group them together for fast and efficient shipping is to place them on a pallet. This action is called "  palletizing  ". What are the precautions to take when palletizing cardboard boxes?

 

1. Choosing the right palette

It is imperative to choose a pallet whose dimensions correspond to the dimensions of the cardboard boxes. If you choose a pallet too small, the crates will overflow the pallet. If you choose a pallet that is too big, the cardboard boxes will be set back from the floor of the pallet. In both cases, there is a strong risk that crates will move during transport and thus the goods contained will be damaged. In fact, an overflow or excessive withdrawal of the cardboard packaging relative to the floor of the pallet prevents lateral support of the pallets between them, which causes a destabilization of the load. Wrapping with stretch film can not compensate for this destabilization.

It is also necessary to ensure that the pallets used are dry and in very good condition.

2. Properly place the cardboard boxes

Another important point is the placement of cartons on the pallet. It is important to know how to spread the weight over the entire surface of the pallet to avoid any incident. In addition, it is recommended to place the heavier cardboard boxes at the bottom of the pallet and the lightest ones above. Make sure the top of the pallet is flat and not littered with cartons set in a hurry.

When placing the cartons on the pallet, it is very important to leave no space between them otherwise there will be no lateral support during transport. Consequence: the pallet will be more solidary and all cartons may fall.

Finally, care must be taken that the palletizers do not deliver side or vertical shocks to the pallet otherwise they may damage the carton packaging It is strongly discouraged to use a full-face transfer palletizer by lateral compression because there is a strong risk that it crushes the packaging.

3. Keep cardboard packaging in place

To ensure the good maintenance of the cardboard boxes, it is possible to use:

  • The dividers between each floor to get a good stability.
  • The straps to strap and unitize the entire range.
  • The angles to protect the edges of the cardboard.
  • The stretch film to film and homogenize the entire palette.
  • A pallet cap to protect the top of the pallet from moisture and dust.

All of these accessories allow your pallets to arrive intact at their destination warehouse. This step of protection should not be neglected.

4. Indicate how to handle the pallet at the customer

It is essential to place pictogram labels on the pallet, in addition to its shipping label, so that the customer understands how to handle it upon arrival at the warehouse. The conditions of storage and handling should be clearly defined through pictogram labels like glass to mean that the goods are fragile or umbrella accompanied by rain to indicate that the goods are moisture.
