Palletising is a common packaging method used when dispatching load shipments, as it helps store and handle products. The cargo load is placed on the pallet and secured using stretch wraps and lashing bands. The pallets can help to stabilise and prevent unwanted load movements in transit.
The size of the cargo pallet is of significant importance for securing cargo loads. The type of pallet used for palletising depends on the size and kind of cargo— a 48 by 40 inches (breadth by length) pallet is most commonly used for holding cargo loads. However, different shipping sectors have different regulated sizes for pallets. Besides the pallet size, the material with which the cargo pallet holds significant importance. Inferior quality materials can result in causing damage to the shipped cargo, which harms the trustworthiness of both the consigner and the shipping company.
