90% of ground transportation is palletized. Therefore, every day we have more efficient systems that achieve greater productivity, space savings and, consequently, cost savings.
At Transvolando we specialize in palletized shipments, both nationally and throughout Europe. We have daily routes that connect the main Spanish and European cities, so we can guarantee an agile delivery within 24 hours and keeping the goods in perfect condition.
What is pallet transportation?
The pallet service consists of transporting a pallet or several pallets with their corresponding merchandise on top. Sometimes we call groupage to the shipment of national and international pallets.
What types of pallets are there?
- Wooden. These are the most common.
- Plastic. The most hygienic, perfect for food.
- Cardboard. Single-use, very hygienic and perfect for the food industry.
- Metal (steel). Stronger and more durable. Its long service life compensates for its high price.
What are the standard dimensions of a pallet?
- European pallet or europallet: 1,200 x 800 mm. It is the most widely used on the European continent as it is adapted to the dimensions of trailer interiors (2,400 mm).
- Universal pallet or American pallet: 1,200 x 1,000 mm. It is the most widely used in the American and Japanese markets. Widely used for the transport of liquid goods.
Pallets are considered to be highly resistant structures, which can be defined by three types:
To compression, which determines the maximum load they can withstand.
To bending, which must be taken into account when slings are used for lifting.
On impact, if there is a fall or heavy blow.
Seven advantages of pallet transportation
International pallet transportation is very common as it has many advantages:
Palletized shipments are much easier to move and handle, both for transport and storage. For loading and unloading or moving pallets, mechanical means are used, such as forklifts, cranes, pallet trucks or forklifts.
With this method, considerable space savings are achieved, both in transport and storage. The dimensions of the European pallet make it fit perfectly in 2,400 mm trailers, being able to place two or three adjacent ones, depending on whether the base measurement of 800 mm or 1,200 mm is taken as a reference.
A cost reduction is achieved precisely because of the savings in space involved in the transport of pallets and storage of goods for palletized shipment.
Fewer personnel are needed for loading and unloading or movement tasks, since these are carried out by mechanical means, thus reducing the time required for these tasks.
With less handling, palletized goods suffer less damage during pallet transport, thus reducing the cost of shrinkage.
As a single cargo unit containing different packages, it is more difficult for the goods to be lost or misplaced.
The pallets are reusable, except for cardboard pallets, which are single-use pallets, thus providing cost savings and greater respect for the environment during domestic and international pallet shipments.
When am I interested in contracting this service?
For example, if your company needs to deliver 20 pallets to 20 different customers, we will pick up the 20 pallets, take them to the warehouse and deliver them one by one to their destination.
Can I contract the shipment of a single pallet?
Of course. You only have to inform us about the measurements and we will take care of the pallet shipment, its weight, its height, the origin and the delivery destination. Make sure your pallets are at street level so you can pick them up.
How can I save on pallet transportation costs?
Making sure that your pallets have the established measurements and weights.
European pallets 120 cm x 80 cm
American pallets are 120cm x 100 cm
Weights are from 150 kilograms to 1200 kilograms.
Your pallets should be stackable, i.e. they can be placed one on top of the other.
Accessibility with loading and unloading schedules, the more accessibility you have to load and unload in the schedules we as carriers can distribute in a wider range of schedules.
Can I hire you on an urgent basis?
Our standard service is 24/48 hours. For emergencies, we reduce delivery to just a few hours (e.g. 1,000 kilometers in 12 hours).
Remember to inquire about our fixed daily routes service and start reducing your shipping costs.
