Abstract

In order to improve the load efficiency of pallets and trucks for agricultural products, various transport package sizes have been analyzed by modular coordination process. From the results, the load efficiency on pallet was 99.8 percent when size was 550 by 366 mm and 366 by 275 mm. Load efficiency of standard pallet(1100 by 1100mm) was 93.6% for truck with 11 tons load capacity while as low as 41.1% for 2.5 ton trucks. Like any other products, this study proved that trucks with more than 8 tons of capacity were highly recommended for transportation of agricultural products.
