Plastic pallets are made from recycled plastic. Exporta Global is known for building quality recycled plastic pallets that last 10 times more than wood pallets and are 30% lighter.
Consistency in Size and Strength:
But why are shipping companies across the globe choosing plastics over wood pallets? There are certain reasons behind it such as wood pallets are made from trees. Trees come in all shapes, sizes and qualities. This leads to inconsistency.
Even if you are cutting trees of the same quality from the same forest, no two trees are alike. Plastic on the other hand is a man-made object that can be manufactured in factories as per the requirement. You can mold it into any shape and size. You cannot mold wood. You can only cut it in the required shape. Plastic on the other hand provides better consistency in terms of size.
For example, Exporta Global manufactures heavy duty smooth deck pallets in the size of 1,200 x 1,000 mm size. Now if you are looking to buy 100 pieces of 1,200 x 1,000 mm heavy duty smooth deck pallet, then rest assured you can trust them to deliver the required quantity of pallets in the required size and form. The same cannot be said about wood pallets. Over the years, several reports of inconsistency had been noted.
Plastic pallets are molded under extreme pressure in high polished molds which leads to consistent dimensional accuracy as well as loading capacities. Strength and size are always consistent when you are using plastic pallets. The whole process is controlled and confined under human supervision. Machines and robotic technology has led to automation and consistency which is the need of the hour.
Trees on the other hand are a natural product which is beyond the control of human intervention. You cannot control their strength and size. Wooden pallets are manufactured from trees leading to inconsistent pallet sizes within the same batch.
Not only this, wood pallets are also inconsistent when it comes to their weight. Woods carries a different weight depending on its density. If you combine all these variables and factor them during your shipping consignments, the overall effect can be huge leading to increased costs and man hours.
Exporta Global uses state of the art technology to manufacture plastic pallets made from recycled plastic materials that will fulfill your needs. Their products are durable and consistent having been made from plastic. You will find nestable pallet, rackable pallet, heavy duty plastic pallet, smooth deck pallet, and more. Each pallet is built to perfection giving you the same size, strength, weight, and dimensions that you asked for. There is no inconsistency which leads to better output.
Shipping companies across the world are now turning to plastic pallets for their needs. Consistency is the key to success no matter in which sector you are working.
