New Generation Recyclable Plastic Pallets Give Wood The Final Chop!
Wood versus plastic pallets? No contest! Viscount Plastics delivered the technological knockout blow with the launch of new generation fully recyclable plastic pallets at Foodtech Packtech 2008. If you didn't make it to the show or the Viscount Plastics stand, downloading a PDF for each pallet can be done simply by running your cursor over Materials Handling on the main menu.
But first, some reasons why this range of closed and open deck pallets is so significant to New Zealand exporters and all businesses reliant on pallets for product transportation and storage.
More than just being fully recyclable (meaning no metal components) and supporting sustainable practices, European design and manufacture puts these pallets way ahead of any currently available. Without being industry specific, this range very successfully targets such specific requirements as cost parity with wooden pallets, strength, longevity, impact resistance, lightweight, load bearing capacity, easy cleaning and much more.
For New Zealand exporters, major additional benefits include cost-efficient return loop 'nestability' and full and automatic compliance with ISPM 15 Certification necessary for exporting to such markets as China, Korea, Canada, USA and EU countries including Switzerland.
