One trip pallets have become the preferred solution for high volume exporters, as they cost less to use and are nestable. These pallets are made from plastic, and as such are lightweight. This also means that they don't need to be in compliance with ISPM15 regulations regarding heat treatment. In terms of cost, these nestable pallets are roughly the same as wooden pallets which have undergone heat processing.
These Pallets are Affordable Yet Durable
Many shipping firms believe that they have to sacrifice quality for quantity when purchasing pallets, but this isn't the case with these new nestable models. These pallets have been specifically designed for large volume exporters who are looking to control their shipping costs. Pallet manufacturing companies, especially those that specialize in plastic pallets, are constantly looking for new ways to build high quality pallets from various plastic grades to maximize performance while keeping costs as low as possible.
The three most important factors in a quality pallet are its loading capacity, durability and cost. While one trip nestable pallets may not be useful for every operation, they give shipping companies an excellent alternative to traditional wooden models. They weigh less than wooden pallets, are safer to handle and they are exempt from numerous regulations.
Nestable Pallet Design Features
There are a number of unique features that can be found within these models. These pallets will typically have a much bigger contact surface, which allows them to hold twenty percent more than standard plastic pallets. These nestable pallets also save a lot of space, which of course will greatly reduce your shipping costs. With a height of approximately 140 mm, these pallets can be stored with ease, and because they weigh little more than eleven kilograms, they are easy to move around.
Despite being light, these one trip pallets are very strong, with some models being capable of handling as much as 2,300 kg. The deck for these pallets may be opened or closed, and many models feature safety rims which prevent the loads from sliding while being moved. If requested, skids can also be added to these pallets, which allows exporters to block stack them.
When selecting a nestable pallet, it is important to make sure it is tough and safe to use. The best models are those designed in a manner that allow multiple pallets to be stacked on top of each other at a good height, while being structurally sound.
Cleaning is Simple
The top deck of some of these pallets will be ventilated, and nesting may also be utilized so that you can save additional money on transport and storage fees. If your nestable pallet is being used to transport perishables, it is important to take hygiene into consideration, as many of these pallets are simple to clean.
Plastic pallets are more odor resistant than their wooden counterparts, and are also less vulnerable to solvents or acid. Some nestable pallets are also moisture resistant and will protect your goods from infestation or mildew. Plastic pallets are also highly accurate in terms of their dimensions.
