When it comes to load units, one of the fundamental issue is what in many cases constitutes the handling materials where items to be stored are grouped.
Handling materials consisting of a platform onto which the goods are deposited are called pallets, while recipients or packages into which the load is placed are called crates. Both are auxiliary equipment used to create, move, and store load units and products.
It is essential to pay particular attention to these elements, since their shapes, dimensions, and strengths and the materials used to manufacture them are not always suitable for all different storage systems, or may require complementary tools or accessories to help position them on racking units. Furthermore, their characteristics also affect the handling equipment and methods used.
At Newcas, we supply the most common types of pallets and crates. However, when planning the facility, there are specific models the details of which it is necessary to know in advance, such as their shape, dimensions, materials, etc.
The building, quality and size of the pallets and crates, as well as the load dimensions, its stackability, etc. are factors that directly influence what is proposed in a warehouse solution project.
Correctly assessing the data corresponding to the load unit, in this case pallets and crates, is essential to put together the best warehouse fulfillment solution that meets the concrete needs of the customer on any level and that makes it run smoothly.
