A Pallet Is A Medium That Converts Static Goods Into Dynamic Goods
A pallet is a medium that converts static goods into dynamic goods, a cargo platform, and an active platform, or a movable ground. Even if the goods on the ground lose the flexibility, once loaded with the pallet will immediately get the activity, as flexible mobile goods, because the goods loaded on the pallet, at any time in the ready to move into the state. This kind of pallet as the basic tool of the dynamic loading and unloading method, called the pallet operation.
pallet operations can not only significantly improve the handling effect, it is implemented, so that the form of warehouse construction, ship structure, railway and other modes of transport loading and unloading facilities and management organizations have changed. In the packaging of goods, to promote the standardization of packaging and modular, and even outside the loading and unloading of the general production activities will have a significant impact. As production equipment becomes more sophisticated, the degree of automation is getting higher and higher, the planning of production is getting stronger and the management method is advanced, and the operation between the processes and the supply of materials and semi-finished products to the production line becomes more and more important.
pallet operation is an effective means of rapidly improving the handling efficiency and ordering the flow of materials, which plays a significant role in reducing production costs and improving production efficiency.
Knowing the advantages of palleting, how can the advantages of palleting be applied in reality? This will lead to the next question: direct pallet operation.
The main principle of handling operations is the principle of least amount of work. That is, when the goods move to minimize the "secondary handling" and "temporary parking", so that the number of downloads as much as possible. In order to improve the transport efficiency, the operator certainly wants to reduce the reprint operation as much as possible. However, the accident on the way in the transport dress is a lot of work. For example, when the railroad is operating, the transport on the line is completed once, but at least 6 to 8 times before and after the operation. If the 6 to 8 times the dressing operation every time the goods on the pallet will be transferred to other pallets, the whole loading and unloading operation is very heavy, which will lose the effect of pallet transport. On the contrary, if the goods in the original installation of the pallet, no matter how complex the way the goods storage and transportation operations, do not change the goods on the pallet of the original, direct end, you can give full play to the effect of pallet transport. Not only in terms of railways, in the transport of motor vehicles and ships, the implementation of direct transport pallets, or by a variety of modes of transport to form a direct transport, transport and transport of goods and materials units, can get a good transport economic results.
Therefore, the direct transport and use of the pallet is one of the indispensable ways to develop modern logistics.
But in China, the actual situation is that most manufacturers have failed to achieve the direct transport of the pallet, resulting in human and material resources, waste is very alarming. According to the China Federation of Logistics and Purchasing Trap Committee of the survey, in the pallet can not achieve direct transport reasons, companies choose pallets turnover and return and other management difficulties are the most. The vast majority of enterprises put the pallet as a working tool within the enterprise, the pallet rarely leave the enterprise, thus greatly reducing the use of the pallet effect.
