A global leader in commercial and residential lawn care equipment needed an improved solution for the storage and handling of engine blocks, gearboxes and other sub-assemblies of varying size and weight load, for movement within their operations and warehousing.
A combination of custom-sized wood pallets, along with standard 40×48 plastic pallets.
Wood pallets present handling challenges and short life span (# of uses), and some issues with load applied to pallet.
40×48 plastic pallets not optimally sized, presenting further handling issues.
GT+Plastics USA designed two custom-sized plastic pallets to address a wide array of customer products.
Pallets utilize steel reinforcement to support challenging point load weight distribution.
