As the first pallet is loaded, it needs to always be placed on the highest cart available to maximize the furthest depth. Once the pallet is centered, the fork truck must drive the pallet at least an inch above the desired cart level and place it down. Make sure the pallet is level and not resting on the push plate. If the push plate is no longer visible, it means the storage lane is full.
It is important to reverse the fork lift slowly while unloading the front pallet because the subsequent pallets will slide forward at the same rate as your reverse. A slow reverse will keep the pallets steady and controlled until they hit the pallet stop in the front end. If you reverse too quickly, the subsequent pallets will fly forward hitting the pallet stop hard potentially causing damage to the pallet, product, rack, or even worse, hurt an employee.
