Avoidable distribution hazards are impacting the products you ship.
The best way to ship? Design a unit load for your product. A unit load combines multiple items into a single “unit” that can easily move through the distribution process.
Packaging your product as a unit load requires organizing and restraining items to allow shipping as a single mass. Many of the hazards that loom in the shipping process can be avoided simply by using a correctly-designed unit load.
So what should you watch out for when packaging your unit load? Glad you asked!
Here’s our list of the top 5 most common unit load mistakes.
