3745 results about "Pallet" patented technology

A pallet /ˈpælɪt/ is a flat transport structure, which supports goods in a stable fashion while being lifted by a forklift, a pallet jack, a front loader, a jacking device, or an erect crane. A pallet is the structural foundation of a unit load which allows handling and storage efficiencies. Goods or shipping containers are often placed on a pallet secured with strapping, stretch wrap or shrink wrap and shipped. Since its invention in the twentieth century, its use has dramatically supplanted older forms of crating like the wooden box and the wooden barrel, as it works well with modern packaging like corrugated boxes and intermodal containers commonly used for bulk shipping.

Method and apparatus for efficient handling of product return transactions

A method and apparatus for efficient handling of product returns to reduce associated costs. A computer system at a regional product return center scans a returned product for identifying information, accesses a manufacturer return approval computer system through the internet or the like, and then submits the identifying information to the manufacturer for return approval. The manufacturer computer system utilizes the identifying information to access an electronic registration database to determine whether the returned product satisfies applicable return criteria. If so, the product is approved for return to the manufacturer. The regional product return center preferably scans a plurality of returned products in a single session. In response to the product identifying information submitted by the regional product return center, the manufacturer provides a list of approved returns and unapproved returns, along with a return authorization number for the batch of approved returns. The regional product return center then assembles the approved product returns into a box, shipping pallet, or the like, applies a label indicating the return authorization label, and ships the batch to the manufacturer. Shipping costs can be saved by omitting rejected product returns from the shipment. The manufacturer can handle the approved product returns from the regional return center as a batch, thereby reducing costs.

Bulk container with plastic liner

A container including a rigid plastic pallet having a platform portion defining a central discharge port, a tubular cardboard sleeve supported at a lower edge thereof on the pallet, and a flexible plastic liner positioned within the sleeve. The liner includes an upper portion of uniform cross-sectional configuration conforming to the cross-sectional configuration of the sleeve and a lower portion of downwardly and inwardly tapering configuration terminating in a bottom liner opening positioned proximate the pallet discharge port. The effective combined height of the upper and lower portions of the liner, with the upper edge of the upper liner portion secured to the upper edge of the sleeve, is greater than the distance from the upper edge of the sleeve to the upper face of the pallet so that the sides of the lower portion may bulge outwardly in response to the loading of contents into the liner to at least partially fill the annular void defined between the sleeve and the lower portion of the liner with the liner fully extended. The pallet port is selectively closed by a trap door pivotedly mounted on the pallet. The pallet port is selectively closed by a trap door pivotally mounted on the pallet and the liner includes a discharge spout extending downwardly from the lower portion of the liner for passage through the pallet discharge port.

Warehousing system with simple and convenient positioning function and cargo delivery method

The invention relates to a warehousing system with a simple and convenient positioning function and a cargo delivery method. The system comprises a warehousing cargo shelf, a cargo pallet, a robot forklift and a robot navigation and positioning system, wherein the cargo pallet is mounted on the warehousing cargo shelf; the robot navigation and positioning system comprises a positioning device for the cargo pallet on the cargo shelf and a positioning device for an optional target point on the ground; the robot forklift can optionally walk on the ground in a non-track manner and transversely stores and takes cargoes; the robot forklift comprises a transverse cargo storing and taking device; and one end of the transverse cargo storing and taking device is mounted in a lifting chute in the robot forklift. The warehousing system is reasonable in design, while the robot forklift linearly moves in the front-back direction and the direction is not changed, transverse movement of a sliding plate replaces transverse movement of wheels to longitudinal position the cargo shelf, the problems of transverse deviation rectifying and longitudinal deviation rectifying are solved, and cargo delivery speed is increased effectively.
