A pallet is an essential tool for the efficient storage and transport of goods, allowing the stacking of more – even heavyweight – goods, while taking up little space. These days there are countless versions, each with a different advantage.
The EUR pallet is the most sought-after pallet type – we will tell you why
The EUR is the most common industrial pallet standard in the European Union (and around the world). The pallets are uniform in size, in all cases 1200 mm x 800 mm x 145 mm. It is an open pallet type, which can be lifted with a forklift from all four sides. There are strict rules for its production, which also a guarantee of quality. It is repairable and replaceable and therefore has a high value. It can be used in many industries from freight to food, vegetables and fruit storage. Learn more about it in our article.
Pallet types: plastic, metal, paper or wood? Which one’s the best?
Most people know and prefer wooden pallets (usually poplar or pine)… However, this is not the only material to make pallets. There are some with extremely high load-bearing capacity and some weaker ones with a more favourable price in return. To choose the best possible solution, consider the benefits and disadvantages of each type. Paper is cheap, but it’s fragile and it’s hard to tolerate moisture. Metal is fireproof and extremely hygienic, but due to its heavy weight, it is practically unsuitable for the transport of goods. The plastic version has a great resistance to moisture and humidity, but it’s a costly alternative.
Order-picking onto pallets aka the packaging of manufacturers’ multipacks into commercial units
Order-picking indicates the process of opening the transport packaging and sorting and preparing each item separately in accordance with the order of the customer and then handing them over to the supplier by placing them on a pallet. It’s not always as simple as it sounds. It requires a lengthy, non-mechanisable/automated, live work and a concrete, well-established strategy. It may amount to between 55% and 60% of the warehouse’s operating costs. How a company is coping with the task is a major factor in the quality of the relationship and cooperation with the partners.
