The increase in reusable plastic product sales within the shipping industry shows a trend toward sustainability. Wooden crates that were used for decades to ship America's merchandise and consumer goods have been replaced by plastic pallets. Reusable plastic products eliminate some of the storage and shipping obstacles faced by warehouse personnel.
Switch to Reusable Plastic Products for Safe Shipping
The straight lines and sturdy hinges of a wooden crate betray the structural weakness of this traditional product. Wooden pallets need to be filled with lightweight materials and stacked perfectly to avoid container damage. Reusable plastic containers are designed to stack easily in trucks and warehouses without much effort by stockers.
Shipping companies have to bring their merchandise through arid, humid and cold environments. The traditional wooden crate provides poor insulation from these conditions. Wooden pallets pick up moisture in humid environments, freeze in colder areas and become deformed through warping. Recycled plastic pallets maintain structural integrity through all types of weather conditions.
Even the best warehouse worker in the world will occasionally scratch and ding products after shipments arrive. The low rigidity of wooden crates means that a sharp corner can cause significant harm to new merchandise. Forklift operators experience far fewer incidents of broken containers and products when using crates built from hard plastic.
The recycled plastic pallets and bins created by Robinson Industries Inc. benefit from six decades of plastic manufacturing experience. Shipping companies that want to replace their wooden crates with reusable plastic products can contact email@example.com.
