(i guess to stack them on their sides would require something more than just a pallet to keep them from rolling away??)

gillmang wrote:Nice pictures. Interesting that they are using palletized storage for the barrels, they look quite close together but maybe that is just the picture angle.

I don't know if they are continuing to use the palletized warehouses they already have, but they aren't building new ones. This isn't a problem if your warehouse doesn't get too hot, but during the hottest days of summer they got an unacceptable amount of leakage.
