Reducing costs is always important to companies especially during times of uncertainty. Slipsheets can not only save an exporter money but increase the amount of shipping space available to them.
Slipsheets practically do the same work as pallets however they are about one tenth of the cost and are much smaller in size. An initial outlay for a push pull device will be required however these can be sourced from just a couple of thousand dollars.
Slipsheets are a thick sheet of plastic which is placed on top of a pallet or flat on the ground. The product is then placed on top and stretch wrapped in place. The push pull device on the forklift will then grab the slipsheet with the product from the pallet and bring it back onto the tines. This process can then be reversed as the slipsheet and product is loaded into the container.
This process creates more room and only costs around $3 compared to a plastic pallet which takes up more room and can cost in excess of $40.
