For example, if a palletizer notices that a pallet isn’t perfectly balanced, they may need to adjust the pallet’s weight distribution to ensure the pallet doesn’t fall apart during transportation.

Palletizers use their hands to operate machinery and perform various tasks. Having good dexterity can help you perform your job duties with greater accuracy and efficiency.

Communication is the act of conveying information through speech, writing or other methods. Palletizers operate machines, so it’s important for them to be able to communicate with the people operating the machines and the people operating the conveyor belts.
