Annual Pallet and Unit Load Design Short Course taught using the pallet design, Best Pallet™, and unit load design, Best Load™ software, September 26 – 28, 2023, Blacksburg, Virginia
The annual 2 ½ day short course for industry professionals was held on the Virginia Tech campus again this year. Sponsored by White & Company LLC, this year’s attendees were treated to the very nice facilities of the Inn at Virginia Tech. Again, the lead instructor was Dr. Marshall (Mark) White, Professor Emeritus of Packaging Systems and Design, Virginia Tech and President of White & Co. This year the program featured Braden White, Technical Director of White & Co., as an instructor.
The 36 in attendance made this one of the largest groups ever. They represented pallet and packaging suppliers as well as their customers. The professional experience level also varied. This made for a very successful and exciting program. The Q and A and interaction between course attendees and instructors was very rewarding for both. Often teaching this course two and occasionally three times a year, this was the 75th course Dr. White has taught. He estimates over 1,500 professionals have attended since the first such courses were offered in 1984. The course included a tour of the Virginia Tech, Center for Packaging and Unit Load Design.
