When you have an option, purchase or build 4-way instead of 2-way pallet and crate bases.
4-way pallet and crate bases allow forklifts and pallet jacks to access all four sides of your pallets and crates. This facilitates easier loading and off-loading.
With 4-way pallets, loaders can better position pallets and crates in trailers to optimize lineal floor space occupied and help lower freight costs over the long term. Also, optimal positioning reduces load shift and lowers the risk of damage during transportation.
