The  advantages  to  using  material-handling equipment are quite noteworthy. It speeds up the availability of material and reduces the amount of  manpower  required.  It  accomplishes  this  by large single movements of stock, which simplifies the  stowing  and  shipping  of  material  with  the  use of less people. Handling materials in this fashion also reduces the risk of damage to materials and reduces  personnel  fatigue  and  injuries. Pallets A  pallet  is  a  low,  portable  platform  built  of wood,   metal,   or   fiberboard,   built   to   specified dimensions, on which supplies are loaded, trans- ported, or stored in units. Flat pallets are either single-faced or double-faced. Single-faced pallets have one platform with stringers underneath on which the weight of the load rests. Double-faced pallets  have  two  platforms  separated  by  stringers. Pallets  may  afford  two-way  or  four-way  entry. The two-way entry pallet is built so the forks of a  forklift  truck  may  be  inserted  from  either  the front  or  rear  of  the  pallet.  The  four-way  pallet is  built  so  the  forks  of  a  forklift  truck  may  be inserted from any of the four sides. Both of these pallets  are  shown  in  figure  4-2.  The  box  pallet shown  in  figure  4-3  is  used  primarily  for  handling small  lot  items  or  easily  crushed  material. Figure  4-3.—Box  pallet. When  loading  a  pallet,  three  things  must  be considered:  (1)  maximum  load,  (2)  stability,  and (3)  proper  pallet  size.  Make  sure  the  pallet  will pass through all doors, aisles, and hatches likely to  be  encountered.  The  stability  of  the  material on  the  pallet  must  be  considered  and  a  decision made as to the type of pallet to use, platform or box  pallet. Figure  4-4  shows  the  recommended  and  not recommended ways to load material on a pallet. Since  the  size  of  the  boxes  being  loaded  will determine  their  arrangement  on  the  pallet,  a standard  loading  pattern  is  not  always  appro- priate.  However,  in  the  illustration  you  can  see that   the   material   not   only   fits   the   pallet   (in recommended  A  and  B  stacking),  but  they  are arranged to provide stability against slipping and sliding. Boxes of materials are not always the same Figure  4-2.—Two-way  and  four-way  pallets. Figure 4-4.—Loading pallets (views A, B, C, and D). 4-7
