What is a Pallet?
Pallets are flat structures that support goods in transit and are particularly useful when it comes to loading and unloading a delivery van or lorry with a forklift truck or other hand operated jacking device.
Using pallets and a forklift means that goods can be loaded much quicker, safer and are less likely to be damaged than if they are hand loaded. The reduction in staff having to manually lift items on and off reduces the risk of injury and your firm having to fight a compensation claim. Most pallets can safely carry 1,000 kg or more.
Also, when the lorry or van is being driven to the destination with the goods on a pallet they will be much less likely to tip over whilst in transit. The pallet provides the firm foundation for the items to be stacked securely in the vehicle.
These efficiencies of time and effort and a reduction in damaged stock will save your company money in the long term.
As a pallet distribution company in the North East, we offer pallets in a wide range of materials from wood and plastic pallets to paper, composite pallets and metal ones. So, for pallet distribution in Newcastle and beyond, Gurteen Transport has all your bases covered.
