Corrugated pallets are 65% to 75% lighter than their wood orplastic counterparts and are made from corrugated cardboard, corrugatedfiberboard, laminated paperboard, or paperboard composite honeycomb and includestructural reinforcements and spacers for forklift blades. In general, palletsare used for the stocking, stacking, storing, shipping and displaying ofvarious products across innumerable industries. Though lightweight, corrugatedpallets are strong and durable (most rated for up to 2000 pound capacity) andare ideal in applications including consumer paper goods and products, snackfood, bottle manufacturing, foam fabricating, plastics manufacturing and POPdisplays. These pallets are cost effective as cardboard and paper products arecheaper than wood and plastic, and they are also cheaper to ship due to reducedweight.
Corrugated pallets are completely recyclable, which meansavoiding landfill fees while, at the same time, helping companies reachsustainability/green goals. The elimination of staples, nails, nuts and boltsnot only results in a light weight and easily recyclable product, but alsoreduces workplace injuries for employees and customers alike. The absence ofnails and like materials also lowers the potential for damage to the productand storage areas such as floors and racks. These pallets also tend to havebetter shock and vibration absorption, better air circulation, and are can beeasily customized to meet specific requirements.
Some other benefits of corrugated pallets include safer andcleaner handling as bugs and mold are no longer an issue. Most of these palletsare supplied with coatings that do not affect recyclability while offeringadditional strength and water resistance for durability in humid conditions. Themost desirable feature of corrugated pallets is their aforementioned lightweight, which means shipping more product at one time is more likely. Workerscan also maneuver and carry multiple empty pallets without the use of aforklift and stacking multiple pallets poses no safety hazard. Fuel use isreduced both inside the warehouse and in shipping, which reduces co2 emissionsoverall and means leaving a smaller footprint.More Corrugated Pallets Information
