Canning Breweries out there. How many layers of cans have you stacked on a pallet and shipped without incident? My normal pallet is 10 cases per layer and 10 layers high. Can I go higher to utilize my pallet spot on a truck? 12? 13? More?
Two Beers Brewery.
I stack 10 layers to a pallet of cans, and that's what I ship.
In static storage (cooler) I can go two pallets high as long as I have a good interface material between the pallets (ie bottle pallet craft paper), and my lowest layer of cans survives. But they are delicate, and if you poke them with a forklift, woe betide you!
I'd bet 10 or 12 is ok for normal packing, and if you are using double thickness trays or PakTech tops, you might be ok to 15. Only way to know is to try!
For bottles we stack 7 rows of 10. We can stack a whole other pallet on top of one of these.

All of these are packaged products. Bottles in 24 pack cases as well as cans in 24 pack cases.
So you guys are saying you have a complete stack of cans, 10 high, then you set another pallet of cans, 10 high, directly (with or without bottle pallet craft paper) on top of the bottom pallet?
The only seperator paper is on the bottom of the first row. 10 in a row, stacked 10 high. We place another skid on top.
