How to fill the gaps between pallets in transportation

Transporting goods on pallets is a very common practice in the logistics and trade industry. However, it is common to have gaps between pallets that can result in cargo shifting during transport, which can lead to material losses and setbacks throughout the supply chain.

Let’s look at the importance of filling the gaps between pallets and how to do it effectively.

Preventing the movement of goods

The movement of goods during transport can be a serious problem. Cargo can fall off the pallets or collide with each other, which can result in damage and material loss. In addition, load shifting can have an impact on the safety of the driver and the transport vehicle.

The domino effect

Not only does cargo shifting have a direct impact on the damaged product, but it can also have a ripple effect throughout the supply chain. For example, if cargo is damaged during transport, it may be returned to the shipper or supplier, wasting time and resources. In addition, the damaged product may not meet quality standards and may be rejected by the end customer.

Ways to fill voids using Niupack

Niupack offers innovative solutions for transportation. It offers a variety of voidfillers that are designed to protect goods and fill the gaps between pallets effectively and safely. These voidfillers are flexible products and adapt to the shape and size of voids to prevent load movement.

They are available in different models, which vary according to the needs and characteristics of the load to be transported. Some of the most commonly used models are:

  • Niupack Top . It is the most common model of the family, perfect for use in trucks and especially in the retail industry, when the load does not completely fill the pallet.
  • Niupack Large . An ideal model for filling large spaces and an environmentally friendly alternative to inflatable bags. Very useful for maritime containers.
  • Niupack Double . It is the perfect model to protect single or odd pallets inside a truck, as it distributes the weight properly per axle.
  • Niupack Block . Ideal model to separate and stabilize stacked loads. It is also used as a separator of irregular goods.
  • Niupack Lateral . A Niupack model with a partially foldable lid for easy placement inside the stretch film used around the pallet.

Improving safety to avoid material losses and mishaps

The use of voidfillers to fill the gaps between pallets not only improves the safety of the load, but also the safety of the driver and the transport vehicle. By preventing load shifting, the risks of accidents and property damage are reduced.

In addition to improving safety, using voidfillers also helps to avoid material losses and mishaps throughout the supply chain. By filling the voids, cargo shifting is prevented and the risk of damage and loss during transport is reduced. This in turn helps to meet delivery deadlines and maintain customer satisfaction.

Filling the gaps between pallets during transport is an essential practice to ensure cargo safety and avoid material losses and mishaps throughout the supply chain.

Niupack voidfillers offer effective and safe solutions to fill these voids, and are available in different models to suit the needs of each load. By using voidfillers, safety is improved and wasted time and resources are avoided, resulting in a more efficient and successful supply chain.
