The early adopters of plastic pallets, however, have discovered their superior characteristics and, little by little, companies have begun to replace their wooden pallet stocks with the new, more reliable packaging solution offered by professional packaging companies. Here is the official site. Please take the time to review these five valid reasons for switching to plastic pallets if you are still using wooden pallets:Just like wooden pallets do, plastic pallets do not break and chip. In order to repair them, you do not have to send them and thus accumulate more costs. Plastic pallets that replace the standard EURO pallet or that can withstand very heavy loads can be found, depending on your requirements (up to 5,000 kg). These pallets, made of reliable materials and according to a carefully studied design, are recommended for long-term and very intensive use. Your company will therefore manage to reduce its costs for these packaging materials per cycle of use.The design of plastic pallets is tailored to different handling, loading and unloading types. Therefore, forklift truck pallets are designed with skids, while others are designed with 6 or 9 feet to facilitate stacking when they are loaded with or stored with products. You can choose from a wide range of pallet models, depending on your requirements: open deck, closed deck, clean room/hygienic and one-way export pallets. The main disadvantage of wooden pallets is that dirt, liquids, fats, oils and chemical substances can contaminate them and they can retain the smell of the products loaded onto them. By comparison, in a simple cleaning cycle, plastic pallets can be cleaned using a standard washing facility. All traces of dirt, stains, and other contaminants are removed quickly and no smell is retained by the pallet. In addition, pallets made of plastic retain a constant weight throughout their useful life; wood retains and absorbs liquid in comparison, making the pallet heavier over time. When your products are weighed on the pallet for transportation and customs purposes, this will have a negative impact on your logistics costs.
