Slipsheets are being used to replace pallets during transport. A big advantage of the slipsheets is that companies can load a larger volume in a container.
Slipsheets are available in 3 different qualities:
- Paper slipsheets (solid)
- Ecoload® slipsheets
- Plastic slipsheets
In order to be able to process slipsheets, one must possess Rollerforks or a push-pull system.
Some of the advantages of using slipsheets versus pallets are:
- Slipsheets are much lighter in weight than a pallet
- Slipsheets can be customized to fit any size load
- Slipsheets are reusable
- Slipsheets are recyclable
- Slipsheets are cost-effective
- Slipsheets are moisture-resistant
- Slipsheets are not covered by the ISPM 15 regulation for heat treated pallets;
- Slipsheets minimize occupied warehouse space
