500 million wood pallets are made in the USA each year,
likely a billion worldwide each year. Most are hardwood.
The global industry is looking to move away from wood to plastic pallets, Until UNICON plastic pallets have been prohibitively expensive & not strong enough.
Problems with hardwood pallets:
Heavy 20-30kg, requires 2 workers to carry. High trucking fuel costs. 400 pallets weighs up to 12 tonnes.
Expensive about $30 each to make.
Splinters Harms workers hands.
Fall apart Nails rust & come loose.
Harbours pests Must be fumigated
Polyethylene-terephthalate, recycled soft-drink bottles.
Expected to easily hold a 1 tonne load. Durable, will last for many years.
$5 expected manufacturing cost.
15kg, a huge fuel saving for trucking companies. 400 hardwood pallets = 12 tonnes. 400 UNICON pallets = 6 tonnes.
Both a standard GWA pallet & a bulk goods pallet. Walls click in place in seconds, forming a bulk goods pallet.
