  • Inserts must be presented in a uniform direction with no turns.
  • Inserts should be delivered on solid open ended non returnable pallets 120omm x 1000mm in size for handling by fork lift truck
  • All pallets should have wooden top boards the same size as the base and measure no more than 1050mm in height.
  • Decks must be covered with a solid base before loading to prevent damage to the bottom layer of inserts.
  • Interleaves should be placed between each layer to aid stability and to prevent damage to the bottom layer of inserts.
  • Pallets should have full length corner protectors to prevent damage to products when pallets are shrink wrapped.
  • Pallets should be wrapped with film to prevent penetration of moisture.
  • Inserts should be stacked flush to the pallets edges. Inserts protruding from the sides will be creased or curled by the shrink wrap. Similarly inserts not stacked to the pallet edge will cause pallets to be unstable and loads to become distorted during transportation.
  • Pallets should be banded both ways with four plastic straps to secure the whole load, protect against movement during transit and facilitate two high stacking. Inserts which vary in size or codes which require separating should not be presented on the same pallet and must conform to the insert specification.
  • Inserts should be bundled and stacked in a manner which enables the operators to take them from the pallets without having to unwrap each bundle or redress small turns.
  • Bundles must have no film or shrink wrap.
  • If inserts are unable to be bulk stacked due to shape or size, then they should be suitably packed in easy to open cartons before palletising.
