Manufacturers of new goods such as soft drinks, food, and other consumer and industrial goods are looking for ways to increase their profit margin,which leads them to look to cheaper shipping methods. Low cost pallets and logistics are investigated as cost cutting strategies, but it doesn't take long for manufacturers to learn that they have a lot riding on those pallets. How much is one pallet load worth? If a cheaper pallet is used and it breaks during transit, will the load be lost? Certainly it will negate any benefit that a lower cost pallet can provide.
We recommend wooden pallets that are custom designed for the product you are shipping. Re-used pallets are fine, if they were designed for the same product and load specs each time. Pallets made to your shipping specifications will exceed the strength demanded by the size and weight of the load and conditions.
At Dominion Pallet, we have been manufacturing high quality new wooden pallets for over 80 years. We use software supported by NWPCA and our sales team is highly trained in pallet and crate packaging design.
