For many businesses, especially those involved in transport, shipping pallets play a key role when it comes to product protection. Regardless of whether products are being shipped via truck or train, a good pallet can ensure the shipment arrives free from damage.
There’s really no better time to take a look at the pallets you’re currently using, and start considering improved alternatives to your current shipping pallets.
What are some of the best options for those looking to make the change?
1) Export Pallets
It’s no secret that at some point, most businesses will have to ship products or equipment overseas. Of course, whether this is a one-time occurrence or the start of a larger operation, you need to ensure no damage will befall the items you’re shipping in transit. Export pallets are the best option here, with a range of options capable of carrying significant weight.
Of course, there are also the environmental benefits that come along with moving away from traditional wooden pallet alternatives. Namely, reducing the use of natural materials and avoiding fumigation.
2) Hygiene Pallets
For those organisations that need to ship chemicals and other hygiene-related products across Australia, there’s often a challenge when it comes to finding a suitable pallet. Wooden pallets can often absorb chemicals, and there’s certainly a danger of such pallets breaking and spilling expensive and dangerous fluids.
Pallets designed for the hygiene industry effectively mitigate these issues by providing a clean plastic surface that can easily be washed, and a durability wooden pallets can struggle to match.
3) Bunded Spill Containment Pallets
Slightly different than the traditional square pallets many will be used to, bunded spill containment pallets are specifically designed to hold drums with oils, fuels and other hazardous liquids. Our Eco Pallets Eco Spill Range includes options capable of holding up to four drums, meaning there’s going to be little to no risk when it comes time for transport.
4) Heavy Duty Pallets
For those businesses needing to ship extremely heavy loads, the only option lies with the heavy duty series. These are pallets capable of holding static weights up to 10,000kg, and dynamic weights up to 2,000kg. They’re a useful option, especially if a business is likely going to be shipping liquids.
Right now in 2020 there really is no better time to make the switch from wooden pallets and go to sustainable, durable and longer lasting plastic shiping pallets. New, durable plastic alternatives can provide the necessary product support and protection required by businesses. Reach out to our team today to learn more about our pallet ranges available.
