In particular, it is necessary not to over-approve the layer load, causing the laminate to collapse and causing the shelves to be scrapped.

Long-term cargo handling may result in partial paint sheds on the shelves. This kind of situation can be self-maintained and treated. First, wipe off the paint part and carry out painting or dusting. Especially in the warehouse with a forklift truck, it is easy to hang up the paint on the shelf, so special attention should be paid to the use of the forklift.
