Wooden Pallets

STANDARDIZE pallet size

standardize iconSome pallets are more recyclable and reusable than others and are, therefore, more valuable. Pallet generators should assess and possibly be prepared to change the kinds of pallets they receive or use. Pallet recycling companies are good sources of information regarding the most desirable types of pallets. Generally, the most attractive is a standard "GMA 48 x 40 pallet."

Standardizing pallet sizes promotes reuse and recycling. Work with vendors to supply incoming materials on pallets your company can use to ship out its final products. A change in pallet size may require modifications to racking, storage facilities or product orientation, but the savings may be well worth it. Using one standard size will reduce pallet inventory needed and labor needed for sorting different pallet sizes.
