Why a Plastic Pallet is Better Than Wood?
Wood pallets have been in use since merchandise first needed to be hauled in bulk. Recent technology has introduced the plastic pallet to the world of shipping, and it is being met with approval. A plastic pallet has several different design elements that make it far superior to the old wooden pallet. Extreme Durability The first thing that sets a plastic pallet apart from its wood counterpart is the durability. Wood pallets can be broken if too much weight is placed on them. They can also fall apart of the weight is not distributed evenly. With a plastic pallet, the material is flexible enough to handle weights that are placed awkwardly or too heavy. In extreme cases the plastic may warp, but it will never shatter the way some wood pallet boards will. Plastic pallets also last longer than wood. Eventually a wood pallet wears out, because wood is a soft material. Plastic is far more durable. Lightweight Design Wood pallets always add a distinct weight to the overall weight of a stack of merchandise. Even the lightest wood has to be included in weight considerations. Plastic pallets can perform the same tasks as wood pallets, but they are a fraction of the weight. The compact design of a plastic pallet efficiently distributes the weight of the load using about half the material. That means that you can carry heavier loads with a plastic pallet because you don’t have to take into consideration the weight of the pallet itself. Suitable for Any Merchandise Plastic pallets work with any merchandise that can be shipped on a wooden pallet. The design of most plastic pallets makes them ideal for items that are not exactly square, as well. Most wooden pallets have spaces between the planks on the top of the pallet, and items can fall through or get stuck. Plastic pallets have tops that are completely intact, which means they provide full support for the merchandise without allowing anything to fall through or get stuck in the cracks. Plastic pallets still provide enough room underneath for a standard pallet jack to maneuver, but overall they are smaller, lighter, and easier to use than wood.
