Is a clamp truck used to move your products? If so, can your packaging stand up to the clamp pressure? More here about the effects of clamping.

Do you import, export, manufacture or assemble goods for retail sale? If so, product packaging decisions need to include the possible negative affects a clamp truck may have on your products.

Clamp trucks are different than fork trucks using pallets. Instead, clamp trucks squeeze two plates around your product’s stacked boxes. Then, the driver uses the truck to lift and move your goods around. Can your product packaging hold up to the plates grabbing onto your products from a clamp truck?

There is no way to get around packaging and handling your goods. Yes, it can be a nuisance or a challenge to find just the right packaging. However, it is still something necessary to take into consideration to run a profitable business. Your attitude about product packaging concerns is a part of the retail goods business that can increase or reduce your job stress.

We encourage you to take packaging choices seriously. Focusing on the financial bottom line, supply chain warehouses commonly use clamp trucks to cost-effectively move your company’s products. Are you sure your product’s packaging can withstand the sometimes immensely strong horizontal pressure placed on stacked products? Gives you some food for thought, doesn’t it?

Probably here to stay for a long time, clamp trucking is growing in popularity. Using clamp trucking typically reduces labor costs and helps accelerate product distribution. Keep in mind for your products, that consumers now frequently demand and expect same-day or next-day package deliveries. Clamp trucking is the fastest way to move products.

Packages can either be loaded or unloaded manually or by using clamp truck handling. Clamp trucks reduce manual labor costs and speed up truck loading or unloading times. Clamp handling is increasing, especially with the high product volumes arriving from Asian manufacturers in intermodal containers.

Our point? Simply be aware of using the most appropriate packaging choices for your products. Keep in mind the increase in clamp trucking. When your customers receive undamaged goods, they are happy. Happy customers keep you in business longer.
