Unit loads shall be appropriately sized and configured in a way which achieves the material flow and inventory objectives at each stage in the supply chain.
- A unit load is one that can be stored or moved as a single entity at one time, such as pallet, container, or tote, regardless of the number of individual items that make up the load.
- Less effort and work are required to collect and move many individual items as a single load than to move many items at a time.
- Large unit loads are common both pre and post manufacturing in the form of raw materials and finished goods.
- Smaller unit loads are consistent with manufacturing strategies that embrace operative objectives such as flexibility, continuous flow and just in time delivery.
