The importance of custom-built wood pallets and crates

If you were to think that a pallet is simply some pieces of wood nailed together, you’d be right. But if you think putting together a quality wood pallet or crate to ship goods down the road or across the world is a simple process, you couldn’t be more wrong.

Not all wood pallets or crates are created equal. Take a look around any warehouse and you’re likely to see the effects of poorly constructed pallets—damaged inventory. Poorly constructed pallets and crates are more easily compromised and account for millions of dollars of damage to valuable shipments every year.

The other problem is damaged stock through using the wrong pallet or crate for the shipment of goods. There are pallets with set specifications for particular industries—pallets that are constructed to cater for specific weights, heights and loads. And then there are the wood pallets or crates that need to be constructed for custom projects. If you have a custom load, it isn’t worth attempting to ship it using stock pallets that are ill equipped to do the job. Chances are this will result in either a damaged or delayed shipment...or both. Either way, it’s likely to prove costly for your business.

For custom loads, it is imperative that you discuss your requirements with a professional wood pallet manufacturer such as HWP.
