Wood purchase precautions
I. Considering the packing specifications of pallets when purchasing. When we purchase wooden pallets, we should make the best use of the surface area of pallets and control the height of the center of gravity of the cargo. The reasonable index for the pallet to carry the cargo is: to reach 80% of the surface area utilization rate of the pallet, and the height of the center of gravity of the cargo to be carried should not exceed two-thirds of the pallet width.
Second, the appropriate pallet size should match the size of the transportation means
Appropriate pallet size can make full use of the space of the transportation means, improve the loading rate and reduce the transportation cost, especially considering the size of the shipping container and the commercial vehicle.
Third, we must consider the versatility of pallet size
Should choose the international standard pallet specification as far as possible, to facilitate the exchange and use of pallets.
Four: We need to consider the use area of the pallet size
The direction of pallet flow for loading cargo directly affects the selection of pallet size. Generally, cargoes destined for Europe should choose 1210 pallets (1200mm × 1000mm) or 1208 pallets (1200mm × 800mm); for goods destined for Japan and South Korea, 1111 pallets (1100mm × 1100mm) should be selected; Choose 1140mm × 1140mm or 1067mm × 1067mm pallets; for goods destined for the United States, choose 48-inch × 40-inch pallets. Domestic 1210 pallets are usually sent to the United States.
