Plastic Pallets

The challenge

Many countries around the world are introducing strict quarantine procedures. This means higher cost of shipping when using wooden pallets. According to the Australian Quarantine Inspection Service “Future Directions” section of the article Imported packaging materials: addressing the quarantine risks:

"The quarantine risk posed by timber packaging is a global concern. Any longer term solution will involve regional or international action on wooden packaging and treatment. Options such as a total ban on timber packaging may need to be considered."

Use plastic pallets! Plastic pallets significantly save you the money, time and effort you spend on quarantine procedures. They’re stronger, lighter and more hygienic, which means they can save you even more money on typical usage.

The benefits to you

Here are the main benefits of switching to plastic pallets:

  • Plastic pallets are lighter – lower transport costs, especially in the air
  • Plastic pallets can be stored outside – lower storage costs
  • Plastic pallets are stronger and you can use them 5 times longer than wooden pallets – higher return on investment
  • Plastic pallets are cleaner. They do not absorb water or chemicals and cannot be used by bacteria or fungi – you can use them in clean areas for food, pharmaceuticals, wine and lots more
  • Plastic pallets are uniform in dimensions and weight – if one goes through your process, they all will
  • Plastic pallets have no splinters and no rusty nails – lower cost of workplace insurance and higher safety for your employees
  • Plastic pallets can be recycled – you can even get paid when they break
