Casing And Palletizing

Casing is almost always carried out in a chilled area or ambient; mechanical palletizing is common, following which the pallet may be shrink-wrapped with polythene for stability during transport. Energy can be saved and product quality retained by introducing cases through a small aperture fitted with a guillotine door (which rises only high enough to admit the case) and palletizing in cold store. The use of forklift trucks, which necessitates two openings of a door sufficiently large to admit a truck for every pallet, incurs significant energy penalties. Vehicles are often sealed onto port doors opening into cold stores; making the interior of the vehicle contiguous with the cold store environment. Cold stores are often highly automated, using high-rise racking accessible with reach trucks fitted with closed cabins for driver comfort and radio communication informing the driver of his order-picking schedule (4).
