Journey Of Pallets From Wood To Plastic

There was a time when wooden pallets were the default choice for most companies when it came to shipping their products from one destination to another. They were sturdy, strong and inexpensive, and there wasn’t much competition anyway. But gradually, things changed and new materials like plastic and metal came into the picture. In fact, in just a few years, plastic pallets have become the fastest growing, most commonly used and sold alternative to wooden pallets.


They a re l ight a nd e asy t o t ransport

They Are Light And Easy To Transport

Plastic pallets are almost 30% lighter than their wooden counterparts. This implies less wear and tear on the machines or equipments used to transport them. That’s not all, since they are lightweight; their shipping and transportation costs are also lower than wooden pallets.


They are hygienic

They Are Hygienic

Plastic pallets don’t carry the risk of harboring bugs like wooden pallets do. They can be safely used in hygiene sensitive areas such as clean rooms and food prep where wooden pallets cannot conform.


They are easy to clean

They Are Easy To Clean

Plastic pallets can be cleaned easily by spraying them with a water hose. A wooden pallet is harder to clean because they are not resistant to water. Wet wood encourages the growth of fungus and attracts termites, which can transfer to food and other sensitive materials. The only way to clean wood pallets is to fumigate them.


They are environment friendly

They Are Environment Friendly

Plastic is 100% recyclable. That means if something happens to the plastic pallets, they can be ground up, recycled and used again. On the other hand, most wooden pallets end up in a landfill or are burned down when they get damaged.


They are durable

They Are Durable

Plastic pallets are not only resistant to chemicals like acids and alkalis, but they also don’t break easily. They are equipped with a cohesive design that makes the material unlikely to be damaged, even while being transported through rough terrains. Wooden pallets are susceptible to chipping, broken nails and splinters


They take up less space

They Take Up Less Space

Wooden pallets are usually quite thick and take up a lot of extra space, so it costs a lot of money to ship items on wooden pallets. Plastic pallets, on the other hand, help save space by sliding together while stacking. They can also be collapsed and stored in a small space.


They are more flexible

They Are More Flexible

Plastic pallets have the advantage of accommodating goods of different types, shapes and sizes. Majority of plastic pallets are made with dividers of various sizes, so it becomes easy to pack different varieties of commodities, which is not the case with wooden pallets.


They are s afe to handle

They Are Safe To Handle

Unlike wooden pallets, plastic pallets don’t have splinters, nails, sharp edges and loose components to break off. Goods have a much higher chance of getting damaged when they are being transported on wooden pallets. Plastic has not overtaken wood in the pallet industry just yet, but it is quite obvious that it is just a matter of time till that happens. Plastic pallets are clearly the future!
