"It has saved considerable loss in damaged products and saves us time and difficulties in the unloading process. So, that's actually two 'plusses', and two happy customers."


Scenario 1

(Before & After)

Scenario 2

Challenge: Shipping varied commodities often results in load stacks of different heights. This shipper manufactures flooring products (carpet tiles and wood flooring) that are in turn shipped to retail outlets. During transit, these products often shift and topple onto shorter product stacks. Product damage as well as excessive unload times were often occurring at destination.


Solution: After the initial visit, the Paylode team created a load plan incorporating solutions to minimize product toppling during transit. By implementing Paylode’s suggested load plan and damage reduction solutions, this shipper is projected to save over $570,000 in five years!

Scenario 3

Challenge:  This beverage shipper was relying on trucks to meet speed to market demands of their customers. The problem was that due to the heavy product weight considerable void remained in these OTR trailers. This excess void was creating more in-transit product damage and increasing the likelihood for accidents due to improper weight distribution over trailer axles.


Solution:  Paylode provided an innovative solution to fill this void, reducing damages by 60%. This solution also provided effective weight distribution to meet CFR 49 compliance regulations.

“Our more than 600 wholesalers across the country have responded very favorably to this product, which has helped decrease shipping damage by two-thirds since we began using it." 


Scenario 1

Challenge:  Shipper ABC has been using rail to move bagged corn and wheat products. As with most bagged product shippers, in-transit load shift was creating above normal product loss due to damage. This company needed a way to address the ongoing damage. 


Solution:  Once we engaged with the shipper to understand their challenges, we determined we could help. Our engineers designed more effective load plans to counteract the load shift. The design also incorporated our superior damage reduction solutions. After testing, the shipper quickly noticed an 85% reduction in damage!  

Due to changes in packaging, product mix, pallet characteristics, transportation modes or carrier equipment, reducing in-transit damages can be a moving target.
