The application case sharing -- PalletPal 360™ in beverage DC

Recently, the application of PalletPal 360 in beverage DC distribution center benefits customers a lot. The operation process of the distribution center is very typical, and the efficiency has been greatly improved since the use of our lifting platform. Therefore, we summarize the specific operation of the center and share it with you.

The application case sharing -- PalletPal 360™ in beverage DC

  • In a beverage DC smaller orders (less than a full pallet) are picked by hand, stacked usually on pallets using a fork lift or electric walkie to traverse between pick slots. 

  • Many major beverage companies (i.e., Coke, Pepsi, etc.) offer 100’s

    SKU’s (brand, size, packaging, etc.) creating lots of smaller orders    

  • The handler can be picking product from a pallet on the floor, turning and setting it on a pallet on the floor (electric walkie). Beverages in a pallet rack make access, bending and reaching even more difficult. 

  • Cases of beverages, bottles or cans weigh 7 to 20 lbs. Fountain syrup cartons weigh 40 to 70 lbs. each.

  • A handler can pick and place 150 to 200 cases per hour …. handling +20,000 lbs. in a shift  Employers must hire only those most physically fit….and even then, turnover is high.

  • Order picking is an injury prone task – a high risk job.

  • DC’s often work night shifts for order fulfillment so trucks are loaded for morning deliveries.

  • No air conditioning, but better DC’s have fans.

  • There is no electrical or compressed air available service in most areas of the DC. 

  • Mechanical equipment must be highly reliable because maintenance is lacking and mostly handled by outside contractors

  • Shelving, rack and floor storage must be flexible for constantly changing beverage types and inventory levels.

  • Carbonated beverages shelf life is limited requiring stock rotation further complicating inventory management

  • Reduces back bending (leveling) and reduces reaching out (turntable) both by as much as 50%.

  • Reduces the possibility of long term injury. 

  • One spring range serves all pallet loads (liquid are liquids – load density is the same regardless of the SKU)

  • No installation required (can ship fully assembled, ready for use).

  • It is not anchored down – easy to relocate providing flexibility in warehouse layout.  

  • No attachment or connection to a power source, no routine maintenance

  • No lubrication required. 

  • PalletPal is highly dependable, backed by a lifetime warranty.   

  • Provides level unloading – no handler intervention, action or height adjustment. 

  • Can be used on open floor (ideal) or in a pallet rack     

  • It is the least expensive automatic positioning device available 

  • In open aisles (like the image) the PalletPal can be loaded or unloaded from either side

  • Increases the handler’s efficiency and productivity while reducing fatigue

The PalletPal 360­™ Spring Pallet Positioner / Level Loader is the original, automatic, self-leveling, spring pallet leveler that makes loading and unloading pallets faster, safer and easier. This simple, automatic load leveler uses a system of springs and shock absorbers to lower and raise loads as boxes are added or removed from pallets. A turntable top allows nearside loading and unloading. No power or air supply is required. Pallet loads up to 4,500 lbs can be easily handled by this spring leveler.
