Plastic Pallets

Wooden pallets are no longer the industry standard they once were. Plants are increasingly turning to plastic pallets to eliminate product contamination, reduce cleaning time, and avoid heat treatment (required prior to international shipments). Plastic pallets also offer a longer service life, as well as lighter repeatable tare weights and dimensional consistency. Our sturdy plastic pallets are also constructed from FDA compliant materials. We offer stackable, rackable, nestable, drum, and export duty plastic pallets, molded or thermoformed in a variety of styles, configurations and capacities.

Heavy duty plastic pallets are a perfect replacement to wood pallets in production, clean room and mixing areas.  Clean, hygenic, rackable, stackable, consistent in weight and dimension, chemical resistant, recyclable and re-usable. 

The choice of the right heavy duty pallet, specifically when it involves plastic skids requires careful consideration. The best place to start is knowing exactly how and where your plastic pallets will be used in your company. If you are still having trouble deciding, contact us to guarantee you have the best heavy duty plastic pallet.

What Are the Benefits of Using Plastic Skids in Your Material Handling Operation?

Our industrial plastic pallets offer a host of benefits, including:

  • Flexibility: These lightweight pallets can serve the needs of light-duty tasks such as exporting, but they're also rugged enough to take on heavy-duty material handling challenges. Choose from solid top plastic pallets as well as open designs that allow liquids to pass through.
  • Easy to handle: The lighter weight of plastic pallets will reduce the risk of injuries to your material handling team and reduce your shipping costs.
  • Multiple options: Choose from rackable or stackable plastic pallets, and nestable pallets are also available. The nesting design requires less space for storing empty pallets in your warehouse.
  • Durability: Plastic pallets are surprising durable — this will result in an extremely low cost per trip over the pallet's lifetime. They also hold high recycling value when the time finally comes to take them out of service.

Use Plastic Pallets to Meet Your Company's Sanitation/Hygiene Requirements

Do you operate a company in an industry such as pharmaceuticals, chemical manufacturing or meat/poultry processing? Our washable plastic drum pallets promote fast, easy cleaning — you will be able to reuse them repeatedly and still maintain compliance with today's stringent FDA, USDA and HAACP sanitation requirements.

Heavy-Duty Plastic Pallets Offer Several Advantages Over Wood

If you typically use wood pallets in your material handling operation, plastic can offer several crucial advantages. Unlike wood, plastic does not produce splinters that could injure workers or jagged edges that damage goods during loading or transit. Plastic skids also provide better surface uniformity, making them a more viable option for today's automated warehousing processes.

The recyclable nature of plastic is also a benefit to any company that's concerned about being a good steward of the environment. And industrial plastic pallets are more attractive than their wood counterparts, which is an important consideration in industries such as retail that use pallets to display goods on the sales floor.

Plastic Pallet Applications

Durable, lightweight plastic pallets work well in a wide variety of material handling applications.

In addition to chemical/pharmaceutical and food processing operations, you can use them in just about any environment where you need to reduce shipping weights, increase safety or minimize the number of broken pallets. If you operate a closed-loop warehousing or manufacturing facility where the receiving company returns the pallet to you after use, plastic pallets can provide an economical solution that can significantly reduce your long-term handling costs. If you're an exporter, you can use plastic pallets for low-cost, one-way overseas shipments that will ensure load stability during transport.
