Proper packing and loading of pallet shelves
We have a few useful tips on how to save on packing and loading palette shelves
- the optimal use of load volumes in the trucks,
- the right load securing and
- avoidance of damage of the shelves to be transported.
The following suggestions are only information, any liability is excluded on our part.
1. Traverses, Beams
- Pack the packages at least 1,150mm to 1,200mm deep (all packages must be the same).
- Package size 1,200mm, also for underlays or pallets (is 1/2 lorry width)
- Make sure that the hooking tabs do not hit each other (picture 1 / picture 2)
- Tie in each truss bar with steel strip 2 x (Picture 3 – consists of 3 crossbars)
- Tie in the middle of the parcel with steel tape 2 times (Photo 3)
- Stack truss bar slightly offset one above the other
- Stack packages side by side
Picture 1: correct
Picture 2: wrong

2. Pallet Rack / Frames / Uprights
- Pack the packages at least 1,150 mm and maximum 1,200 mm deep (all packages must be the same).
- It should be packed upright at 800mm frame depth (picture 2 and picture 3).
- Wrap each frame package 5 times when height is from 4.000 to 7.000mm.
- Wrap each frame package 6 times when height is from 7,000 to 10,000mm.
- Frames to be packed offset (feet alternately left and right in the finished Stack- Picture 1)
- Stack packages on top of each other.
3. Truck loaded correctly – examples loading error
A standard semitrailer – tarpaulin truck has the following loading dimensions:
Width: 2.44 – 2.48m
Height: 2.65 – 2.70m
Loading capacity: 24.5 t
34 europalette places
The ready-packed packages should make the best possible use of these dimensions.
A condition for the optimal use of the truck load space is that the packages are packed as described in point 1 and 2.
Traverse packages are loaded first, then you put the frame packages
(Picture 3 shows loading error)
Use the loading height optimally (as in pictures 2 and 1)
