HOW PALLETS CAN HELP YOUR BUSINESS
Every single day, goods travel all over the world, and yet for most of us, we barely take a moment to realise the massive part that pallets have in this.
We’ve all seen videos on Youtube of “pallet fails”, or read of the costs involved when pallets fail.
Pallets are an essential item in the supply and logistics chain, but are also used in many other industries for various purposes.
Have a read below at how certain giants in their respective industries put pallets to use, and how you can use them in your industry too!
From Small Businesses to Large Corporations
Regardless if you are using them for storing stock, displaying stock, or moving your goods, it’s important to do so on quality Australian Standard Pallets.
When your goods arrive at your customers, and first impressions count, don’t risk your brand reputation by using dirty, broken, or moldy pallets.
Automotive / Mechanical
Vehicle parts such as rims, tyres, gearboxes, and engines are often heavy and/or bulky, but also can be fragile. They need a reliable storage and transportation method. Our one (1) and two (2) tonne Standard Pallets are ideal for this.
Manufacturing / Construction
Delays and missing deadlines can cost YOU money either in getting goods out, or getting your construction materials to site.
Our one (1) and two (2) tonne Standard Pallets are perfect for large bulky items, bricks, tiles, or any other materials you need transported safely.
Printing, Packaging and Paper
Food and Beverage
Beverage companies often need to carry expensive and very heavy goods, ensuring no damage occurs during transport.
Food companies need to move stock often quickly and between areas without damage. In both industries hygiene is of the utmost importance, which is why we recommend used Plastic or new one (1) and two (2) tonne Standard Pallets for this industry.
In the general consumer market pallets play an integral role in Coca-Colas supply chain.
Warehousing, Storage and Transportation
Pallets used in this industry need to be durable and robust, often dealing with being moved via pallets jacks or forklifts.
Damaged and broken pallets leads to downtime.
Pharmaceutical and Medical
Be it the manufacture of drugs, medicines, or medical devices, in the transportation of these items it is absolutely crucial to maintain a high level of hygiene.
Leading pharmaceutical companies have switched to Plastic Pallets already to reduce stock damage and potential contamination concerns.
For this reason and for ease of sanitisation we recommend the use of used Plastic Pallets.
Supermarkets and Stores
Pallets play an integral role in what we buy getting not just to the store, but on the shelves.
Purchasing and Selling Pallets
Some companies find that they often have surplus of pallets (anywhere from customer deliveries, to excess pallets in warehouses, etc). We can assist in the removal/collection, pick up and purchase of excess pallets, or used pallets.
We do NOT purchase or handle CHEP or LOSCAM pallets.
These pallets belong to their respective companies, and must be returned directly to them.
As both companies charge for usage of their pallets, failure to return them can lead to large outstanding rental bills.
