Pallet Slip Sheets, also known as Pallet sheets or Transfer Sheets are used in material handling and shipping sectors. They are cost-effective, lightweight, wood-free and fully recyclable.

Effective Pallet Substitution

Constructed from either cardboard, plastic, or corrugated fiberboard, Pallet Slip Sheets offer an alternative to wooden or plastic pallets for transporting and stacking products.

The sheets are placed between layers of products and serves both as a protective barrier and as an aid to facilitate movement within storage facilities and during transit. The use of the sheets reduces the necessity for pallets which leads to a reduction in the overall weight and cost of packaging materials.

The Pallet Slip Sheets are implemented through Forklifts or other material handling equipment outfitted with specialised slip sheet attachments. These attachments securely grasp the slip sheet and enable it to be lifted, pulled, or pushed as required.

Enhance Warehouse Load Handling

The slip sheet system presents a practical and space-efficient approach for the loading and unloading of goods. They are suitable for environments with space constraints or in scenarios where pallet availability is limited or not aligned with regional standards.

Our Pallet Slip Sheets are fully reusable and recyclable. They are available in a range of sizes to accommodate diverse load specifications. They are also suitable for the shipment of lightweight or uniformly shaped items, including bags, boxes, or cartons.

Cost-Efficiency: Slip sheets present substantial economic benefits over traditional pallets. They are not only less expensive to acquire but also can be disposed of after a single use. This reduces the expenses associated with managing wooden pallets, addressing lost pallet issues, and covering costs for pallet returns or repairs.

Maximised Warehouse Efficiency: Due to their compact design, slip sheets allows for more vertical stacking compared to bulkier pallets which enhances warehouse space usage.

Transportation Cost Reduction: The lightweight nature of pallet sheets contributes to a decrease in overall storage space. This reduction in weight permits the loading of additional goods to optimise transport capacity, translating to lower transportation expenses.

Improved Hygiene Standards: Slip sheets offer a cleaner storage environment by diminishing the risk of pest infestations. Unlike deeper pallets that can harbor rodents and insects, the flat design of slip sheets minimises pest habitat opportunities. Their disposable nature after each usage further lowers the risk of cross-contamination from other storage facilities or previous handling.

Environmentally-Friendly: Pallet sheets are eco-friendly and fully reusable and recyclable. Contrary to wooden pallets, which frequently end up in landfills, slip sheets can be effectively recycled.

Effective Utilisation of Slip Sheets in Material Handling and Shipping:

  1. Assess Unit Load Specifications: The initial step in utilising slip sheets involves a thorough evaluation of the product’s specifications for transportation. This includes understanding the weight, dimensions, and stability requirements of the unit load, which is required for selecting the most appropriate slip sheet for the task.
  2. Selection of Slip Sheets: The choice of slip sheet should be in harmony with the unit load’s characteristics. Identifying the optimal slip sheet is key to ensuring safe loading, unloading, and transportation of goods. Factors such as material composition (be it cardboard, plastic, or corrugated fiberboard) and size are important considerations in the selection process.
  3. Availability of Proper Equipment and Training: Access to requisite equipment, such as forklifts or other handling machinery, fitted with slip sheet attachments is required for the training. Additionally, providing comprehensive training to operators is beneficial to ensure they are well-equipped at handling the equipment safely and efficiently.
  4. Comprehensive Understanding of Slip Sheet Functionality: Gaining an in-depth knowledge of slip sheet operations and their integration with material handling equipment is beneficial. This understanding is fundamental to the efficient and effective deployment of slip sheets which is aimed at minimising potential damage or accidents during handling and transit.
  5. Consideration of Receiver’s Capabilities: Prior to the implementation of slip sheets, it is recommended to evaluate the unloading and storage facilities of the receiving end. This is beneficial to ensure that they possess compatible equipment, tools, and storage solutions for slip sheets to facilitating smooth operations and efficient handling upon delivery.
