Just curious about how companies pack their shipping containers. If you use slip sheets you get more in, but need special handling equipment. If you hand stack, you get more in, but need more labour? What do you do? Let's just poll on Imports.

OK OK. So the % totals add up to more than 100% right! This had me stuck for a while. This is because it is a multiple choice poll! Someone has clicked 2 responses.

Can't say that I have ever seen anything other than hand stacking!

Anything other than hand stacking does not make sense does it?

I guess it might depend on the product, how well it is packed, how fragile it is and how it will be unloaded at the other end..............amongst other things :) But I think you are right. In 95% of cases, hand stacking might be the answer.

Basically companies uses equipment in handling shipping containers. And if hand stack moreover a labour is always at stake.
