Plastic Pallets

Plastic pallets made from new HDPE or PP are usually extremely durable, lasting for a hundred trips or more, and resist weathering, rot, chemicals and corrosion. The benefits of plastic pallets over wood pallets include the ability to be easily sanitized, resistance to odor, fire retardancy, longer service life span, durability and better product protection, non-splintering, and lighter weight, thus saving on transportation and labor costs and making them safer and more environmentally friendly.

Plastic pallets are exempt by inspection for biosafety concerns, and easily sanitize for international shipping (ISPM 15 requirement). HDPE made pallets are impervious to most acids and toxic chemicals clean from them more easily. PP made pallets are more impact resistant. Logistics service providers can benefit from their durability and stackability. The large supply chains have increased the use of plastic pallets as many organisations seek to reduce costs through waste, transport and health & safety.

Plastic pallets can also be made from a new and mixed recycled plastic material or 100% recycle plastic to reduce its cost. Plastic pallet made from recycled materials may not be as strong and durable when they are manufactured with new plastic materials. These lower cost pallets are usually for one-time use delivery and export purposes.
