Challenge Overhang issues with products that are packed and wrapped on a pallet refer to the situation when the products extend beyond the edges of the pallet after they are packed and wrapped. This can lead to stability issues during transportation and storage, as the overhanging products may shift, slide or fall off the pallet, causing damage to the products or the pallet itself. Overhang issues can be caused by incorrect positioning or stacking of the products on the pallet, inadequate wrapping or strapping, or uneven weight distribution.
