What is palletising?
Palletising is the method of stacking, packaging, and moving products on pallets to improve efficiency for handling, transporting, and shipping. Installation of a new solution can improve efficiency in a number of ways. Thus, less space is used up in stacking and storing methods, by stacking goods closely together. As a result, larger amounts of goods can be moved at the same time, speeding up the amount of goods moved in a particular time frame.
