  • Loading on pallets should be uniform & equally distributed on entire loading surface of the pallet. Concentrated / Point load is not recommended. 
  • Loading pattern should be in Brick-wall’ form. The first layer (bottom most) is preferred to be placed across the direction of pallet runner.
  • Do not step on pallet while loading/handling.
  • Always lift & then shift the loaded pallet during handling. Avoid ‘sliding or pushing’ loaded pallets as it may damage the pallet.
  • Lift and load one pallet at a time.
  • Overloading of the pallet is not recommended.
