Effect of Palletized Box Offset on Compression Strength of Unitized and Stacked Empty Corrugated Fiberboard BoxesJournal of Applied Packaging Research
AbstractThe purpose of this study was to evaluate the effect of pallet type, tie-sheet and stack configuration on compression strength of a palletized load of boxes. Four boxes made from similar board grade and different dimensions were selected for this study. The column stack configuration which represented the control was compared with the 3 stack configurations either on a CHEP® or GMA pallet. The unitized load either had a tie-sheet in between layers or no tie-sheet between layers of boxes on the respective pallets, for compression strength comparison with the control unitized load represented by a column stack configuration. This is the first of a series of two papers.
