A slipsheet is a flexible platform made from a sheet of heavy fiberboard or
plastic. They are used because of their low cost and minimum cube usage.
However, special handling equipment is required to be used by both the shipper and consignees. A special kind of lift truck attachment pulls the sheet onto
a polished steel platform which carries it on the front of the lift truck. To set it
down, the attachment pushes the load off the platform. Another special kind of
equipment is a clamp truck. It grabs a load between platens and squeezes it
with enough pressure to be able to lift it as a unit and carry it in its clamps.
