THE LOAD PLAN | The pallets are loaded into 20’ containers. Each container will hold approximately 22 pallets of 8 x 8 x 1.6 cm cement and terrazzo tiles. After the pallets are put into the container, the pallets are braced together using wood. Attaching the pallets together further secures the pallets into their position to avoid movement during transpiration which might damage the tiles.
THE WEIGHT | Maximum 20’ container weight 39000 lbs (approx 17500kg) / 40’ container weight 48000 lbs (approx 22000kg). This is equivalent to approximately 5,500 sf of cement tile.
THE DOCUMENTATION | All crates and pallets are numbered. These numbers are recorded on the packing list and commercial invoice which travels with this shipment. If specified in the purchase order, installation instructions will be included in the carton or on the pallet. The packing slip listing shipment contents will be placed on the outside of the wrapping of each pallet/crate.
