Plastic Is Best For Shipping Pharmaceuticals
The pharmaceutical industry is stringently regulated, the overheads are very high and tolerance for failure is exceptionally low - it's a demanding industry and employing best practises are absolutely essential to succeed. As a procurement professional, warehouse manager, or company owner working in pharmaceuticals, you'll be committed to ensuring every standard is met. Plastic shipping pallets are an easy way to make sure your products get to their destinations safely and without contamination.
Eco Pallets produces high quality plastic solutions for materials handling. Our pallets, crates and other supplies are eco-friendly and come in a range of sizes and styles, and boast the ability to safely handle various load types and weights. What's more, we supply to multiple industries across the whole of Australia.
Ensuring sanitary standards
Our range of plastic shipping products are extremely easy to clean, and due to the smooth surfaces cannot harbour dangerous bacteria in the way that the porous surface of wood can. Sanitisation of wooden pallets can be a time consuming and expensive process, yet this sanitation is absolutely necessary for wooden pallet use in an industry that relies heavily on hygienic transportation methods.
As wood is naturally more prone to absorbing moisture and accommodating insects, plastic pallets meet the industry requirements for drugs and medicines far more efficiently. Our plastic pallets have no seams or joins - bacteria has nowhere to hide.
Reliable delivery of goods
The biggest risk to delivering your pharmaceutical products is via contaminated wooden pallets. As previously mentioned, wood is naturally absorptive, and where these pallets are exposed to the elements they are likely to absorb water. Not only does this present a bacterial breeding ground, but it also weakens the wood.
Wooden pallets are highly prone to breakage, meaning splinters or loose metal fasteners can damage your goods or your personnel. Our plastic pallets and containers are durable, and reduce the risk of product loss, damage or contamination significantly.
