Custom Pallet Manufacturing
If you operate a logistics business, or manufacture goods for sale elsewhere, you’ll benefit from using pallets in your transport and warehousing operations. Pallets allow for safer and more efficient handling of goods during storage and shipping, but they also make it less likely that products will be damaged or lost during transport and handling. You can buy new and used pallets of a variety of sizes, although the standard size is 40 x 48, with a hardwood stringer pallet of this size being the Grocery Manufacturer Association (GMA) standard.
Why Palletize Goods?
Pallets are used in product packing and logistics operations for a wide range of reasons. The benefits include reduced damage and theft, as products are wrapped to pallets in measured loads, reduced staff injury and overtime, and increased productivity as warehousing is more efficient and more space is available for use. Because pallets allow for mechanical handling of goods, logistics operations are quicker, and safer, saving time and money for the business. The resulting savings can be impressive, with some suggesting palletization can save a company 45% on average. Give Houston's Premier Pallet, Crate, & Lumber a call if you need to know more.
Why Use Wood Pallets?
Houston's Premier Pallet, Crate, & Lumber recommend wood pallets - they are economical, customizable, environmentally sound, and can help protect your goods better than other methods during shipping. For shipping grocery products wood pallets allow for a superior air circulation to keep items fresh, and as pallets can be moved using a standard forklift, they make loading and unloading easy, too. For the environmentally conscious, wood pallets are an obvious choice. A pallet can last 7 years, after which is it recycled, making it the best choice for your business, and our natural world.
