Cartons on pallets, example 9

The following shortcoming may not look very dramatic, but can still result in cargo damage.
  Small cause, big effect

Package (1) can topple and be damaged because the gap in the stow has not been completely filled.

An additional pallet, a, and a squared lumber member, b, provide a compact stow. In general, however, using so many spare pallets for cargo securing merits criticism. As already mentioned, this may result in additional disposal costs in some receiving countries.
