The way product movement, handling, and storage has worked has been rapidly changing over the last two decades. The increase of global consumer buying has led to a massive increase in the transportation of consumer goods, resulting in a need for more efficient shipping that can be safely transported across distances without damage to goods and products. Traditional pallets can only stack if the goods or products themselves are strong enough to support the weight. If not, the pallets cannot be stacked, leading to wasted space that could otherwise be filled with additional pallets of goods.
This is where the retention unit comes in. A retention unit is a collapsible wire cage that can be attached to an existing standard layout pallet, giving it structural integrity as well as the ability to allow stacking. This means less wasted space, so increased profitability and reduced spending on storage, meaning a more profitable business overall. They are one of the most stable available types of pallet boxes on the marketplace.
The 21st century is a time where more goods than ever are being transported around the globe. High chairs made in China end up in a Weatherspoon’s in Watford. This has meant increased demand for shipping space, putting all shipping space at a premium and resulting in a drive to find more efficient ways of stacking and packing. This is why the retention unit exists, to increase the number of pallets that can be potentially stacked into a shipping container or any other storage.
Your business can make use of this when you to Exporta Global to buy retention unit. These retention units provide the same sort stacking that shelving and racking offer, but without the fixed structure and with the ability to be moved and altered easily. Lightweight and corrosion resistant, the Retention unit is a very useful addition to any company that deals with long term or short term storage of bulk items. It’s high-walled sides ensure the safety of any goods or products that are stored inside, and keep them in place during transit. It also allows for the stacking of pallets by its strong and stable structure.
This makes your worker’s lives easier and reduced the possibility of accidents in the workplace. This is beneficial for both you and your employees; your employees will feel safer and more comfortable in their working environment, and you as an employer mitigate risk towards your employees, in turn reducing the amount of liability and potential legal cases that you may have brought against you.
The collapsible aspect of the retention unit means that they can be flat packed and stacked to be stored neatly when not in use. This means that once they are not required for use, they can be stored away to save space. By flat packing your retention unit, you save space in storage, which in turn saves money. The less space used, the lower the amount of space required, so the smaller the storage the facility and associated costs.
Storage locations such as this can be easily utilized in order to keep items that are usually mounted on wooden pallets. The Hypacage unit is a good alternative to traditional storage options. Using these storage options can be superior to using traditional storage methods because of the amount of weight these retention units can hold as well as their ability to be stacked easily because of their reinforced rim. This means an increase is space use and a more easily managed inventory.
A hypacage is used in the same fashion as a pallet, for the storage and movement of products and goods. Anywhere that you might see a pallet, wooden or otherwise, is where you would see a hypacage in use. From shop floors to shipping containers, hypacages versatility allows them to fit into any situation and provide a solution to any storage requirements.
A retention unit is used when there is a need to either keeps good in place during transit and storage while protecting the integrity of the goods or stack pallets in transit or storage that contain goods or products that could not normally be stacked.
Using a retention unit is more superior than other, more traditional methods as the amount of weight that a retention unit can hold is far greater than that that a normal stacked pallet could most likely carry, depending on the strength of the goods or products being moved in transit.
Hypacages in Retail. Retention units can be used to create a more flexible storage environment in retail. Where before racking would be needed to hold multiple crates, now retention units can be added. Shelving and racking is set in place, reducing the number of storage configurations possible, while pallets with retention units can be easily moved and stacked.
