Should I palletize my boxes or not?

Solution

Palletizing Freight and Shipment

Palletized and shrink-wrapped cargo has much higher probability to reach its destination without damages or loss. The shipping charges may also decrease because in stead of shipping multiple boxes, you will be shipping a single parcel and reducing your fuel surcharges and accessory fees.

Additional charges for palletized cargo may appear:

  •  Cost of pallet and labor
  • A charge due to extra chargeable volume for palletized cargo
  • Lift gate charges may apply if you do not have a loading dock
