XPC pallet couplerConnecting PMC or PAJ pallets Back to overview
Transporting oversize cargo is always a challenge for carriers. One tactic they often resort to is using pallet couplers to connect two PMC (125”x96”) or two PAJ (125”x88”) pallets longitudinally. Once joined, the two pallets form a 20-ft pallet that is much less expensive and certainly less complicated logistically than a single 20-ft pallet.
Certified and approved by FAA
Since there's a lack of regulation for pallet couplers, Boeing set up a project to carry out research into the use of pallet couplers in order to formulate and substantiate safe procedures. Its project was supported by several airlines, the FAA and equipment suppliers like VRR.
The tests were highly successful, and our coupling beam passed all tests. In fact, our pallet coupler was the only coupler for PMC/PAJ pallets to make the grade, which means it will be the only approved coupling beam available on the market.
