Leave the wood. Go plastic.
Single use plastic is bad for the environment and obviously has an impact on your finances with repeat buys, which is why Goplasticpallets.com is leading the way when it comes to creating sustainable, recycled plastic pallets and plastic boxes.
With the understandable concern about single use plastics it seems counter-intuitive to use plastic products, but our plastic pallets really are better for the environment as they are made from recycled plastic.
They are also a great way of making cost savings!
You wooden believe it…You can save money when you Go plastic!
Although pallet pool ownership is not a new concept, many large companies and their suppliers are still repeatedly buying or renting wooden pallets, where they could make significant savings by switching to plastic.
In fact, we’re seeing more and more customers starting to actively cultivate an income from purchasing their own plastic pallets and using them within a closed loop scenario.
Plastic pallet ownership – the benefits
Owning and managing your own internal closed loop of plastic pallets provides you, the owner, with greater flexibility and a better return – without incurring the costs associated with renting.
Just some of the benefits include:
- Resilience – plastic pallets are hugely resilient and can be used repeatedly for often 10 years or longer, without the need for costly repairs or replacement.
- Hygienic – as plastic pallets are water-resistant and impervious to moisture, weak acids and alkalis, they can be repeatedly washed to remove airborne dust or spilt products that can accumulate over a period of time.
- Income generator – business owners can generate a revenue stream by renting the plastic pallets they own to suppliers and other partner businesses.
- Protect against loss – many of Goplasticpallets.com’s plastic pallets are available in different colours and can be branded with a company name or logo.
- Recyclable – Goplasticpallets.com has pledged to recover and recycle all of the plastic pallets and boxes it supplies to customers to ensure they are sustainably recycled.
The slightly lower outlay with wooden pallets may appeal initially, but by switching to plastic pallets you are investing in your own, long-term asset that in less than 12 months will pay back dividends.
Don’t just take our word for it!
Our customers are already reaping the benefits of operating their own internal closed loop of plastic pallets.
Just one example is Menzies Distribution who ordered 4,680 of our APB 1210 Pool Perforated 5R pallets last year.
Andrew Poskitt, Project Manager - Strategic Development, said: “The plastic pallets work seamlessly with our totes – we’ve not had any issues with them. There is also a lot less mess, as there’s no wood chip in and around the operation. As the plastic pallets have a long life span, we hope to be still using them in five, maybe even 10 years’ time.”
One year on, Andrew is still delighted with the performance of the plastic pallets. He said: “As the plastic pallets are consistent in size and weight, in the last year we’ve had very few breakages, which has allowed us to both improve productivity and save money. In fact we’ve been so impressed by the service Goplasticpallets.com has provided that we’ve since ordered some of their folding pallet boxes.”
