The world continues to become smaller, as trade routes between countries expand to facilitate the transport of billions of tonnes of goods every year.
As global shipping continues to grow, it's understandable that the demand for shipping containers will likewise increase. This is the finding of a new report published by Persistence Market Research.
The company found that the increased demand for shipping containers can actually be attributed to a number of factors. Firstly, there's the anticipated growth of seaborne trade. What's more, rising numbers of factories and manufacturing facilities continue to drive up the demand.
Of course, such an increase means businesses will also want to consider the benefits of new export pallets designed to work well with newly developed shipping containers – especially refrigerated or "reefer" container models, which are set to witness the highest growth over the next few years.
The market research company pointed out that this segment of the market is likely going to see strong expansion through to 2021. These containers make it easy to transport perishable goods such as meat, dairy and fruit and vegetable products. With markets such as China massive importers of such items, it's easy to see why the container market is going to grow so substantially.
As noted above, export pallets are one of the best options for any business planning to ship goods in these containers. Designed specifically for international shipping, these pallets can hold unified static loads up to 3,000kg and unified dynamic loads up to 1,000kg. What's more, they feature four-way fork lift entry points as well as four-way pallet jack entry points.
