Plastic Pallets – the Unsung Heroes of the Supply Chain

We will paraphrase an old saying and state that plastic pallets make the world go round. Or, at least the supply chain, the essential element of global trade and the circulation of goods.  As the last few months proved, any interruption in the supply chain, at any point, causes massive negative effects in various places across the world.

However, global trade did not stop, even under unprecedented circumstances. Goods continued to travel across the oceans, on roads and, finally, in a shopping bag to the consumers’ homes. For the largest part of the journey, these products – from consumer goods to industrial machines and components – were stacked and kept safe on plastic pallets.

One Pallet for Each Job

Why are plastic pallets so important for the supply chain? The answer is simple: these professional packaging materials facilitate:

  • Safe and easy merchandize handling;
  • Creating a standardized pricing policy for shipments;
  • Improving logistic operations;
  • Optimizing operational costs;
  • Adequate protection for products in transit.

At the same time, plastic pallets have different designs and features, adapted for the specific requirements of each industry. Over the years, professional packaging producers like Logistic Packaging listened to their clients and used the information to develop new and innovative pallets to suit their needs.

In this article, we will present in detail some of the best selling models of plastic pallets in our offer and the way in which they contribute to the global supply chain.
