DID YOU KNOW
Standard Pallets are the oldest pallet type in the world. During WW2 pallets came into prevalence as a key part of the transportation of allied goods, and at the end of WW2 Australia was left a large number of pallets by the US.
With a few minor tweaks the Australian Standard Pallet was born along with Australia’s first pallet distributor.
Standard one and two tonne pallets are now used widely throughout Australia in many industries for the storage and transportation of goods via road, rail (RACE container), ship (container), or air.
A crucial part of the supply chain, standard pallets enable the safe and secure transportation, storage, and delivery of materials.
Whilst plastic pallets are becoming more popular (and offering more long term cost effectiveness in some industries), standard pallets still account for the majority of pallets in use today.
GENERAL PALLET INFORMATION
Pallets have been assisting in the transportation and storage of goods for many years. Initially starting with Standard Pallets, before the industry saw the introduction of Plastic and EPAL Euro Pallets. In recent times pallet manufacturers have explored other avenues including sustainable methods to create new types of pallets, and sourcing timber from sustainable sources to build new timber pallets.
Whilst pallets vary in size, materials used in construction, and weight tolerances.
But not all pallets are created equal.
Read on below to find out important and key information regarding making the RIGHT decision on pallet supplier, why buying from low quantity and low quality sellers on online marketplaces can be a costly mistake
The importance of a quality standard pallet
For many a pallet may just seem like “just some wood nailed together to transport stuff on”, but the reality is vastly different.
Think about what is on those pallets, and how they are used.
Can you afford to write off damaged, dirty, or fungi contaminated stock?
Can you afford shipping delays and angry customers when a pallet fails during the transport, handover, or recovery from warehouse storage?
Choosing a quality and reliable Sydney pallet supplier is important.
A single pallet can carry not only lots of weight, but incredibly valuable stock. Pallets also aren’t just about delivering goods, but about the presentation of goods. Don’t risk your company’s reputation on cheap, dirty, or poorly constructed pallets. This can lead to product damage, product marking, or even complete collapse of the pallet.
Can you afford to lose a client OR a pallet load of stock?
Whilst we sell used pallets, it is important to remember that one cannot determine how much weight a pallet has carried, and how many times it has carried weight. Our second hand pallets go through stringent quality checks but we cannot guarantee weight loadings.
Caring for your Standard Pallets
Wooden pallets should be checked for damage prior to use, and after unloading. If missing nails, boards, or any visible damage pallets should be discarded, repaired professionally or replaced.
Wooden pallets should be kept out of rain and conditions that can harbour fungi. This includes if outside undercover during winter, where dew can form and assist fungi to grow, or in high humidity environments.
Timber Standard Pallets can also be impacted by long exposure to the sun outdoors. Constant high outdoor heat exposure can lead to buckling, and unsightly colour changes.
