A couple of days ago, we had a shipping container full of straws and gerbera tubes arrive at work, and, as usual, some of us were recruited to help unpack, and then load them inside the warehouse.
This container was only a 20-footer, sometimes we get 40-footers. Since they were only straws and tubes, the boxes were reasonably light, unlike some boxes we get!

This is mostly what I was doing - stacking them onto pallets.
Each different size of box requires a different way to stack!

Dad used the fork-lift to take the pallets of stacked boxes to the warehouse,
where Uncle Paul and a few kids re-stacked them onto the mezzanine.
It was helpful having Rita, since she's pretty tall! (When I get the top boxes,
they normally fall on top of me, and I have to carefully move one at a time!)
Well, hope you enjoy the pics!
PS. The pics were taken on a phone, so please excuse the quality.
