Anyway to insure that pallets with a single product are built in full layers?

Our store locations require that single product pallets all ship in full layers - no uneven tops - is there anyway to do this in OTM?


Many of our stores require that single product pallets be created with full layers.  For example, when we are shipping 17 cartons of soda and the standard full pallet is defined as 6 x 3 or 18 cartons - our current setup has OTM packing all 17 cartons onto one pallet with 5 full layers and one partial layer of 2 cartons. We're wondering if there is a way to only allow full layers, so for the 17 carton store order OTM generates a solution with 1 pallet with 15 cartons - 5 full layers of 3 cartons per layer and then starts a mixed pallet with the remaining 2 cartons?

Howdy, Stranger!
