Storage Ashore
will   be   delayed   unless   receiving   areas   are kept  clear.  The  replenishment  plans  for  each ship  designed  to  make  optimum  use  of  the ship’s  materials  handling  must  still  be  per- formed  by  manpower,  but  may  use  any  of  the following units of equipment to supplement this effort. Pallets The  normal  procedure  is  for  supplies  to be  unitized  on  pallets  when  delivered  aboard combatant  ships.  Mechanized  movement  aboard larger   ships   will   generally   be   done   in   full unit   loads.   During   strikedown,   empty   pallets not  used  for  storage  should  be  neatly  stacked out  of  the  way  of  the  material  flow  in  prep- aration  for  their  return  to  the  auxiliary ship.   The   stacking   and   return   of   the   pallets may   be   an   individual   station   responsibility or   the   responsibility   of   the   entire   replenish- ment   evolution.   When   a   station   is   no   longer receiving  cargo  it  is  clear  to  return  pallets to   the   auxiliary.   The   station   should   be   used for   this   purpose   at   the   discretion   of   the cargo  officer  on  the  combatant  and  with consent  from  the  auxiliary  to  return  empty pallets.   A   reasonable   amount   of   care   should be  exercised  in  handling  and  returning  the pallets   to   the   auxiliary   since   their   reuse will  result  in  a  considerable  savings  to  the Navy. Transporter A   transporter   is   a   vehicle   designed   to receive,  carry,  and  off-load  a  multiple  num- ber  of  pallets  per  load.  Standard  transporters are  available  with  capabilities  of  carrying four   pallets.   Transporters   are   available   with various   types   of   conveyor   decks   capable of   loading   from   a   fixed   conveyor   or   from other  external  sources  and  capable  of  off- loading   to   an   external   conveyor   or   other source.    Transporters   are   used   for   the   hor- izontal   movement   of   cargo   on   deck   and have   capabilities   of   negotiating   ramps   to carry   out   transit   of   cargo   between   decks. Transporters  may  be  either  gasoline-  or  diesel- powered   units. Transporters   may   also   be provided  with  the  capability  of  lifting  loads to   perform   onloading   from   a   variety   of levels. Forklift Trucks A forklift truck is a vehicle designed to pick up,  carry,  and  stack  palletized  loads.  Standard forklift  trucks  are  available  with  lifting  capacities from 2,000 to 15,000 pounds and lifting heights from  50  to  210  inches.  However,  units  carried aboard ship are usually in the capacity range of 2,000 to 6,000 pounds. Forklifts are available in gasoline-powered,   diesel-powered,   or   electric- powered models and may be equipped with solid or  pneumatic  tires.  Electric  models  with  solid  tires are more commonly used aboard ships. Their use eliminates the danger from carbon monoxide con- tamination  in  confined  spaces.  Forklifts  are employed for the horizontal movement of pallet- ized  loads  on  deck  and  may  also  be  used  to transport  loads  between  decks  where  adequate ramps  are  provided. Pallet  Jacks Pallet jacks are available in two designs: the hand-operated,  manually  propelled  model  and  the electric-powered, hand-operated model. This type of truck is commonly used where a forklift truck may not be operated because of space limitations and where tiering of pallet loads is not required. The   electric-powered   model   is   capable   of negotiating slight inclines under load but generally this  type  of  equipment  is  limited  to  horizontal movement. Tractors A   tractor   may trucks or dollies in be  used  for  towing  loaded the  horizontal  movement  of cargo  on  deck.  A  tractor  has  only  pulling capabilities  so  that  loading  and  unloading  of trucks  or  dollies  must  be  done  by  other  means. Tractors  may  be  gasoline-,  diesel-,  or  electric- powered   and   equipped   with   either   solid   or pneumatic   tires.   Tractors   are   rated   by   their drawbar  pull  capacity. Trucks and Dollies Four-wheel trucks and pallet dollies may be available  aboard  ship  for  short  haul  horizontal movement  of  cargo  with  manual  means  or  with the aid of a tractor. Two-wheel hand trucks are also  available  for  manually  handling  material. 7-14
