A NEW PALLET SYSTEM INCREASES THE EFFECTIVENESS OF CONTAINER TRANSPORT AND PERMITS THE USE OF STANDARDIZED PACKAGES

The authors studied the means for improving the utilization of loading areas in transcontainers by employing pallets dimensioned in an appropriate manner, and the use of standardized packages facilitating the implementation of the results of these studies. Both approaches, viz., (a) changing the container dimensions to permit accommodation to the pallet size of 800 by 1200 mm, and (b) use of pallets or other loading facilities with sizes conforming to the existing container dimensions, were explored. It was shown that the introduction of two additional pallet sizes would materially contribute to the effective utilization of the container transport facilities and of standardized packages.
