Long Life and High Quality
Plastic pallets impress with their form stability, and longevity. Wastage and breakage, which are everyday events with wooden pallets, are not an issue with plastic. Precise measurements and designs create a high degree of stability in the process. Moreover, they can be customized for automated storage and picking systems.
The one-time acquisition costs for plastic pallets are high in comparison with wooden pallets. But the consequential costs that develop along the logistics supply chain are significantly lower. Nestability, the decline in cleaning costs, the decrease in product breakage due to pallet damage, the reduction of repackaging costs or unnecessary mechanical downtime, and problem-free disposal – these all contribute to plastic's tremendous cost advantage in modern logistics. Additionally, plastic pallets retain their material value at the end of their operational lives: They are 100% recyclable and can be turned back into new pallets.
Its structure reliability is better than wooden pallet, which can greatly reduce the consumption of pallets, because it has a long service life, can be used for more than two years under normal conditions, and does not need to carry out repairs.
If wooden pallets are used to ship meat, fish, or other perishable food, or toxic chemical dangerous goods, then wooden pallets should be destroyed according to the requirements after use. The plastic tray can be reused, as long as it is washed with clean water or disinfected.
Wood pallet is prone to fracture during transportation, while plastic pallet is not, because it is very durable, not prone to fracture, and it can be used repeatedly, thereby improving the utilization rate of pallet and reducing environmental pollution.
Plastic pallets have good load capacity. In the case of equal weight, the load of plastic pallets is five times that of wooden pallets, which can improve work efficiency and reduce costs.
Plastic pallets can be moisture-proof, mildew-proof, moth-proof, and more convenient to clean, while wooden pallets can not do these, so the adaptability of plastic pallets is better.
