Software tool offers unique insight into unit load design.
Pallet Design System (PDS) 6.0--an advanced software tool that considers the interactions between a flexible wood pallet and corrugated boxes--is now available. Using technology usually associated with jet engines, race cars and spaceships, the PDS 6.0 offers a unique insight into wooden pallet and unit load design. This insight is now being used to enhance pallets' material efficiency, prevent cargo damage and reduce costs. The software's Unit Load for Boxes installment is the first to be released, and an installment of software tools for drums, plastic pails and sheet goods will be revealed in the coming years.
