Pallets are used for many things, but the primary function of pallets is to store shipments safety and for warehouse stacking storage. Example of materials used for pallets is timber pallets, plastic pallets, and metal pallets.
The advantage of using wooden pallets is its economical nature. They are in-stock and cost-effective. However, timber pallets can only be used for lighter loads, and the materials are easily affected by weather, and it is susceptible to damage caused by mishandling and overloading of transported products.
Plastic pallets are more durable than timber pallets. It is reusable and compact since it is manufactured as a whole, which means it is without any assembled parts and seams. It is more costly than timber pallets, but the quality is worth its price when it comes to weather resistance. The plastic pallet is exceptionally resilient to pressure and impact, making it another best option in choosing a type of pallet.
