Plastic pallets come in all different sizes, densities, weights, colors, and configurations. Figuring out which plastic pallet is best for your business can feel a bit overwhelming at times. Here we will take a closer look at the different types of pallets so you can get a better idea which one would suit your business needs best.
An economical pallet is just what you might assume—one that is easier on your budget. These might be considered as an inexpensive trial pallet before making the switch from wood to plastic. They come in a variety of sizes and have low tare weights. They are also great for one-way shipping and air cargo.
One of these options is a B-grade pallet that is the least expensive option. The B-grade designation is due to minor flaws during injection molding. Due to those flaws, they fail to meet our high-quality standards. In most cases, flaws will not affect the functionality and performance of the pallet. Minor flaws could include but are not limited to: discoloration, cracks or chips, or missing material.
Our nestable pallets lower transport costs and reduce storage fees of up to 75%. This means they take up one-quarter of the space when nested together as compared to designs that do not nest. This feature saves on shipping costs for the return trip but does not compromise on the quality of the product or the strength of the pallet. These pallets are very durable and can accommodate enormous loads.
Nestable pallets are favorites for use in warehouses, distribution centers, and for transportation from factories to warehouses or retail centers.
Our rackable pallets are heavy duty and built to be utilized in a rack system with large loads. Racking systems generally leave pallets unsupported and use the system to store products, saving on floor space and optimizing the items stored for later distribution.
These pallets are known for their strength, making them suitable for heavy-duty, and their design makes them safe and secure when in use with storage racks. They also save floor space, are durable, impact resistant, and are the perfect companion for products with sanitary requirements as they are easily cleaned and sanitized.
These pallets can be found across all industries and utilized in warehouses, processing, manufacturing, distribution, and stack loading and static storage environments.
Our stackable pallets are designed to maintain maximum stability with or without products loaded. These pallets stack well with each other and with products. They are easy to clean and sanitize as well as being very durable and a popular choice in automated systems because they are easily maneuvered.
They are the perfect choice for the food and beverage industry, the pharmaceutical industry, and also for household products. The variety of styles they are available in, from vented to solid, make them an easy type of pallet to customize.
Export pallets are designed to withstand far-loop transportation under heavy weight. They are made to be cost-competitive, can be made from HDPE or recycled plastic (ACM), are strong, durable, and like all our pallets, environmentally friendly. These are generally thought of as send-and-forget pallets for one-way shipping.
Used pallets will let you find significant savings without sacrificing reliability and quality. They can be any of the different types of pallets we offer and are limited in availability. What we have in stock can be found on our website here or by checking with our sales team, as once in a while there may be some available that have not yet been listed.
