Experience the benefits of plastic pallets vs. wood pallets

Pallets in Pile_small

Wood Pallets


They can’t nest. They can’t rack. They take up space in trucks and plants, leading to extra transportation costs.

Wood absorsb bacteria and water. Shavings and dust contaminates your shipment and dirty your facility.
Nearly a third of wooden pallets require repairs. You pay for wasted product and pass-through repair costs.

Even with repairs, wood pallets last ~3 years, preventing you from reaching sustainability goals.
Each pallet is unique with bulges, dents, nails and big variations in weight.
 Supply chain disruptions
Lost pallets can cause disruptions in your supply chain, a problem that is resolved with trackable plastic pallets.
 Foreign bodies
Foreign bodies contribute to inconsistent pallet sizes and are a potential hazard in your supply chain.
Wood pallets absorb liquids, which can pose threat to health and food safety.
 Waste space
Bulky wood pallets cause inconsistencies in your supply chain and cost you more space.

Reusable Plastic Pallets

Plastic pallets last longer than wooden pallets, making them a cost-effective choice in a well-managed pooled system.
 Food grade
Food grade compliant according to EU directives 10/2011 and 1935/2004, virgin material, no harmful substances used during production. Pallets are also available in recycled material.
Because of the smooth surface of a plastic pallet, it is easy to wash and keep clean. Bacteria, fungi and mold have no chance of survival.
Plastic pallets are ISPM-15 proof. No more heat-treated wooden pallets for international shipments. Keep it simple and safe.
 Consistent sizes
Because plastic pallets are moulded, the sizes and weight are always consistent, causing zero disturbances in your automated material handling systems.
RFID tags and even GPRS and IoT technology can be embedded so tracing your pallets is simple and data is readily available.
 No foreign bodies
No more loose particles or protruding parts, like wood chips, splinters and nails that can cause injuries or product damage. A clean working environment and storage area.
Plastic pallets don’t absorb water or any other liquids, a huge advantage when working in a clean environment as you avoid contamination risks.
If selecting a nestable pallet, there are significant space savings and efficiency gains with storage and return transport.
