Cartons on pallets, example 1

Fully palletized cargo simplifies packing in containers carrying mixed consignments. However, when properly secured, the packages illustrated here entail considerable extra labor.
  The packages are not "fully" palletized

One option is to cut the cartons from the pallet and stow them manually, so entailing extra effort.

The packages would have been correctly prepared for shipment if they had been packed flush on a stackable base. It is important to ensure that the strapping is not jeopardized by handling with ground conveyors. They could be torn at (a), as this is where the forks are inserted. This cannot happen at (b) because the straps are accommodated in routed grooves.
