Freight as a pallet item

Correct transport packaging ensures that the item reaches its destination intact. The product to be transported must be packed to endure the stress during terminal handling and transport.

Pallet as a transport platform

Moving the pallet

Ensure that the pallet can be moved with a forklift. The minimum height of the pallet is 12 cm.

Size of the item

Please ensure the item has a transport platform that is the right size and can endure the item’s weight. If the item exceeds the transport platform’s edges, cover the item carefully. If the item exceeds the transport platform’s edges, the pricing criteria changes.

Ensure the transport platform’s center of gravity

The transport platform must be loaded so that it can be moved with a forklift. Ensure that the item is secured so that it does not move or become detached from the platform during transport.

Top-loading

If nothing can be stacked on top of the item, please mark this clearly with stickers and tapes. If other items can be stacked on top of the item, ensure the durability of the packaging materials.

Ensure that the item is tied to the pallet bands, wedges and plastic wrapping so that it does not move or become detached from the pallet platform during transport.

Sending liquids

Send items susceptible to leaking as contents requiring special handling. Use leak-proof containers or bottles. Please pack containers with large openings, such as buckets containing berries, in plastic bags. Tape or tie the bag so that it is waterproof. Pack all containers with liquid in a durable box and wedge them so that they are immobile. The package must include filling material to absorb any liquid should the container or bottle break.
