Case Studies

Woodway have been working closely with a leading OEM to the aerospace and defence sectors reviewing their packaging procedures, in particular their palletisation of boxes.

Key Issues:

  • Not maximising use of space on pallets
  • Gaps between boxes
  • Over-hanging on sides causing boxes to weaken
  • Boxes being stacked in a way that causes damages due to weight on the more fragile side

Solution:

To resolve these issues it was recommended to brick stack boxes on the top and bottom layers only and stack them on top of each other equally, for the layers in-between. This not only gives the stacked pallet more stability, with less damages to the boxes, but also maximises the space allowing more boxes to fit on the pallet.

Demonstration:

In order to demonstrate the best box configuration for stacking, Woodway made a bespoke sized miniature pallet with specially made boxes. This enabled the training to be conducted away from the noise and distraction of the operational area in a quite meeting room. The customer were so impressed by this method that they have started using it to train their staff.
