DID YOU KNOW
Plastic pallets date back to the 1960s, when patents for the design were first lodged. Blow and injection moulding was the first way to manufacture plastic pallets, before rotational moulding, compression moulding, foam moulding, and thermo moulding became more commonplace.
Since these days plastic pallets have continued to evolve and improve, making them an excellent alternative to standard wooden pallets, albeit at a higher price point.
GENERAL PALLET INFORMATION
Pallets have been assisting in the transportation and storage of goods for many years. Initially starting with Standard Pallets, before the industry saw the introduction of Plastic and EPAL Euro Pallets. In recent times pallet manufacturers have explored other avenues including sustainable methods to create new types of pallets, and sourcing timber from sustainable sources to build new timber pallets.
Whilst pallets vary in size, materials used in construction, and weight tolerances. But not all pallets are created equal.
Read on below to find out important and key information regarding making the RIGHT decision on pallet supplier, why buying from low quantity and low quality sellers on online marketplaces can be a costly mistake!
The importance of a quality standard pallet
For many a pallet may just seem like “just some wood nailed together to transport stuff on”, but the reality is vastly different.
Choosing a quality and reliable Sydney pallet supplier is important.
A single pallet can carry not only lots of weight, but incredibly valuable stock. Pallets also aren’t just about delivering goods, but about the presentation of goods. Don’t risk your company’s reputation on cheap, dirty, or poorly constructed pallets. This can lead to product damage, product marking, or even complete collapse of the pallet.
Why you should consider plastic pallets!
Can you afford to write off damaged, dirty, or fungi contaminated stock? Can you afford delays when pallets are rejected due to lack of fumigation? Can you afford shipping delays and angry customers when a pallet fails during the transport, handover, or recovery from warehouse storage?
Traditional timber pallets need to be checked for damage prior to use, and after unloading. Missing nails, boards, or visible damage means pallets should be discarded, repaired professionally or replaced.
If not kept out of rain timber pallets can warp and weaken. If outside undercover during winter, rain, or in high humidity environments, fungi can grow leading to your pallets needing to be replaced.
Timber pallets can also be impacted by long exposure to the sun outdoors.
Constant high outdoor heat exposure can lead to buckling, and unsightly colour changes.
