Why Quality Pallets Are Essential to Avoid Damaged Goods

Plain Pallets on 27 February 2015

What do you use your pallets for? Stacking and storing products? The transportation of goods?

If you are using pallets as part of your business operations, chances are they are charged with the protection of goods and products in some way. And chances are, if your pallets broke, other products would break along with them.

Despite the importance of pallets in protecting your company’s goods, their quality often isn’t given much thought. However, having strong and durable pallets is extremely important to reduce the risk of costly breakages – not to mention unhappy customers – for your business.

The Risks of Poor Quality Pallets

When you load a container full of goods stacked onto pallets and shut the door, that’s only the beginning of the journey.

By sea, by land or by air, the road of a pallet en route to its destination is rarely smooth. Traveling by truck, a pallet needs to be able to withstand turns, potholes and bumps. When loaded onto a ship, a sea-bound pallet will have to endure being lifted by crane and then withstand whatever knocks the ocean delivers.

If your pallets have not been constructed properly, whoever receives the load at the end of the journey is at risk of finding the pallets have collapsed, damaging the products loaded onto them as a result.

If this was you, would you be happy? Would you be willing to pay the damage?
