6 loading plans and stacking sequences you never thought of

“Palletising with software calculates where a product or a box should optimally be placed on a pallet. It helps warehouse workers to stack and load efficiently.” The majority think of rectangular boxes, which fit neatly together.

“Out of the box”- palletising

But you can also look beyond stacking on a pallet or loading a box.

Bart van Dijck, project manager at Faes, believes that every company can benefit from the use of loading schedules and stacking software, even in situations where stacking is not so obvious. He gives some examples that you probably never thought of:

1. Non-stackable products
