If customers decide to store their slipsheeted goods onto pallets before shipment, Meijer Handling Solutions recommends to use RF-Pallets. This type of pallet is only used in-house. When the goods are then unloaded at their destinations, the customer can use standard pallets and RF-Pallets are not specifically needed. RF-Pallets, wooden or plastic, can be produced locally. Of course, the receiver of the goods can use their existing pallets.
To speed up the loading time of slipsheeted goods in combination with RollerForks®, the RF-Pallet is developed. This standard pallet with extra profiles on the pallet’s top surface improves RollerForks® unloading speed significantly. The tip of the RollerForks® can be inserted under slipsheets/goods quickly and easily. The rollers then allow goods to be unloaded effortlessly into containers or onto pallets.
When using a four-way RollerForks®-Pallet, slipsheeted goods can be loaded pin wheeled into the container.
The RollerForks®-Pallet makes it possible to store goods on a special-purpose base. These pallets can be stored in the same way as standard pallets and can also be handled using standard forks.
