It also speeds up loading and unloading times with a small-format footprint of either 800 x 600 millimeters (31.5 x 23.6 inches), or 1000 x 600 millimeters (39.4 x 23.6 inches) that easily maneuvers through narrow spaces, explained Mike Ludka, senior product manager.
“The Pally is designed to be used at every point of the supply chain. It allows users to easily move goods from distribution center to truck to retail aisle without unnecessary and costly product touches. This next-generation design makes the Pally easy to use and store,” Ludka said.
User-friendly features include contoured deck handles, rubber braking stabilizers and an optional locking handle, as well as integrated 3-inch polyurethane casters (fixed or swivel) that are foot-pedal activated, allowing stacked loads to be moved or static.
