several problems:

- you cannot load parts directly from the line, you will need to include some "pick up points" (e.g. SingleProc). The SingleProc supports the exit behavior "carry part away" (see help)

- if the destination is a place with a pallet on it, the worker will wait, until the place is empty; so you will need to trigger the movement of the part. This you can do in the entrance control of the workplace
e.g. @.cont.move(loadingPlace.cont)

- to trigger the transport of the empty and filled pallet, you can use a trick; set in all stations the exit behavior carry part away + add an empty exit control to this stations - so nothing happens in the first step; if you call now e.g. loadingPlace.cont.move --> the exit behavior is triggered and the worker is be called

here you find an example:
