Tandemloc's Shipping Department takes great care to package every
product that leaves our facility in the most secure manner possible so
that it arrives at our customers’ docks in excellent condition.
Tandemloc utilizes boxes to pack and secure items small enough to be
shipped via UPS Ground or FedEx Ground. Products shipped via LTL
freight carriers are boxed, plastic-wrapped, and metal banded to
standard shipping pallets.
Both palletized and non-
palletized shipments are filled with 100% recycled packing
paper to prevent damage to the products while in transit.
Larger boxes are lined with 1/4" thick corrugated cardboard
sheets to ensure an adequate cardboard barrier is created
between the product and pallet or between multiple layers of
products within the box.

All palletized boxed shipments are wrapped with plastic wrap and then banded to the pallet using steel
banding. The standard plastic wrap utilized on boxed Tandemloc shipments is 90 to 120 gauge clear or opaque
wrap. The banding material used on palletized shipments are 1/2" to 1/4" thick steel bands.
Tandemloc utilizes two standard sized pallets for their
shipments. Treated pallets are available upon
request. The size of the product being shipped
determines the size of the pallet to be used.
Tandemloc’s shipping personnel will NEVER ship an
item on a pallet that is smaller in length or width than
the product being shipped. If a product, like a
spreader bar, is too long to fit on one of our standard
pallets, then a custom pallet is fabricated using
multiple standard pallets, heat treated 2x4 beams, 3/4"
steel banding, and nails.

For extremely heavy or large shipments custom
pallets are built in house. All custom pallets are built
using heat treated plywood and lumber. Certain
products are capable of fitting on standard pallets but
are too heavy for the pallet to withstand the weight.
Heavy items are always shipped on custom pallets
built to withstand such heavy loads. Light but large shipments utilize custom pallets made from 2x4 runners,
1x4 slats, and a 3/4" plywood base. Heavier products receive custom pallets made using 4x4 runners, 1x4 slats,
and a 3/4" plywood base.
Custom built crates are also available upon
request for a fee. The walls of all custom
built crates are made from 1/2" thick heat treated plywood while the
tops are made from a lighter 1/8” thick plywood to
make the unpacking process less strenuous.
For products that are too large to be shipped via
standard LTL Freight Carriers, Tandemloc
recommends shipment via flatbed carrier. Even for
these types of special shipments, Tandemloc’s
Shipping Department takes special care that the
product is safely and securely strapped to the flatbed by overseeing the entire process. Tarping products is
also recommended, as the tarp protects the product from any exposure to the elements as the items are
transferred to our customers’ docks.
