A pallet is the structural foundation of a unit load, which allows handling and storage efficiencies.
Wood Pallets are about 3 times less expensive than plastic pallets and at least 10 times more widely used. They hold more weight than plastic, can be used for weights between 1,500 and 3,000 pounds, and they can be easily repaired and reused.
Wood pallets are flat platforms made of lumber, such as pine or hardwood, durable and long-lasting materials. Wood pallets are often used in manufacturing, warehousing, and shipping, as they provide an efficient and cost-effective way to transport goods.
A pallet is a wooden platform on which goods are stacked and has two open ends that allow the entry of the forks of a lifting truck so the pallet can be lifted and moved about easily.
The future of wood pallets is about making the most of existing resources and working to eliminate the waste wood platforms create. Pooling models and standardization will help to improve sustainability in the supply chain, as will more environmentally friendly composite materials.
