In my current post I am going to talk about the “pallets cage”. The pallet cage is an improvement that was introduced to trucks. It was created for optimize the return of the pallets after doing a delivery.
As is possible to see in the previous image the pallet cage is located in the middle of backside part of the truck. The improvement is nothing but add a cage for help with the pallets or additionals wheels. The cage was designed to solve a problem that happen with the return trip in the distribution sector.
The problem with the return trip was what to do with the pallets when the commodities is served to the customer. Because sometimes for the characteristics of the commodities the customer does not need to keep the pallets in his warehouse.
When the customer or the commodities do not need the pallets for be stored, these are returned to the producer warehouse. And in that case the pallets spend place at the truck that can be used to take commodities from the delivery place.
The pallets cage helps to the companies to optimize all the place of their trucks in order to transport the highest quantity of products in the trip of return. Thanks to that companies have the possibility of organiza their routes for have all the time the trucks full-loads. With little improvements like that companies save money and achieve a logistic system more sustainable.
