Wooden Pallet I Plastic Pallet
Pallet (also called a skid) is a flat transport structure, which supports goods in a stable fashion while being lifted by a forklift, a pallet jack, a front loader, a jacking device, or an erect crane. It is the structural foundation of a unit load which allows handling and storage efficiencies.
Goods or shipping containers are often placed on a pallet secured with strapping, stretch wrap or shrink wrap and shipped. Since its invention in the twentieth century, its use has dramatically supplanted older forms of crating like the wooden box and the wooden barrel, as it works well with modern packaging like corrugated boxes and intermodal containers commonly used for bulk shipping.
Most companies are using pallet for shipping goods.
Pallet is a common freight packaging choice, are used in logistics of the transportation process, from storing the items in a warehouse to enabling them to be moved in bulk as well as keeping them protected and allow for easy movements during transportation. Pallet are designed as a platform device which is a base for transporting, handling, transfering stock for both products and materials.
As compared to non-palletized cargo consignments, pallet shipping is definitely costly. However, their cost-effectiveness by effectively minimizing the potential risks and damages to the consignments makes the pallet cargo a must-have in the freight shipping industry.
There are many advantages of using wooden pallets.
One of the main factor people choose for wooden pallet is because it is the lowest cost method compared with plastic pallet or steel pallet. This is ideal for those purchasing on a budget.
Wooden pallets are also easy to repair and do maintenance, which is the method to cut cost from pallet replacement. All you need to do is to remove the broken plank and replace with new wood plank rather than replace whole pallet.
Other than that, broken wooden pallet can be disassembled into wood plank and cut into wood chips which can be produced into other chemically produced wood or paper.
In additional, wood has benefits in the sense that it is easier and faster to produce. This is very convenient for those huge pallet consumption users.
On the whole wood pallet is stronger and more durable. It also offers a greater level of security because they boast a high level of friction, this is even better compared with plastic pallet. This ensures that the shipment do not easily slide off when they are on the pallet.
Disadvantages of Wooden Pallet
There are also some disadvantages of wooden pallet you need to bear in mind as well.
One of the main problems is the fact that wood is an organic material and after some time it can quickly warp, moldy, weaken or splinter. Thus, whilst you may save money in relation to your initial start up costs, you may actually end up spending more because of continual reordering costs.
The individuals who handle the pallets often experience nasty surprises because of protruding nails or splinters. Needless to say, a nail or splinter digging in your hand is not a pleasant experience.
Aside from this, wood pallets are extremely difficult to clean. This is because bacteria and fungus is encouraged to grow when wood becomes wet. Last but not least, wood has to be treated in order to be shipped internationally because wood can contain invasive species of insects or plant diseases.
Advantages of Plastic Pallet
Plastic pallets also offer an excellent solution to pallet consignments.
One of the best things about plastic is the fact that it lasts for a longer time. You can expect to get at least ten years of use out of plastic material, thus you can save money in the long run.
Plastic also provides you with another way to reduce your expenditure by reducing shipping costs, as plastic is approximately 30 percent lighter than wood.
You also don’t have to deal with interruptions in delivery. When shipping wood you have timber pallet regulations to contend with.
Aside from the points that have been mentioned, it is also worth noting that plastic is safe to handle, as you don’t have to worry about chipping, splinters and screw nails.
Plastic is also resistant to chemicals, such as alkalis and acids, and thus they can be cleaned easily. In order to remove bacteria plastic pallets can be chemically sanitised, steam cleaned or hot washed. If that wasn’t enough, they are entirely recyclable and can be turned back into a new pallet.
Disadvantages of Plastic Pallet
As mentioned earlier in this post, plastic is more expensive than wood, and thus the start up costs can be substantial. Thus, this is an obvious downside.
In addition to this, another disadvantage is the fact that plastic pallets cannot be easily repaired. If the plastic breaks or cracks, you would have to melt it down and re-mould it in order to make another one. This is obviously a lengthy and inefficient process and thus would lead most people to purchasing a new pallet instead.
As touched upon earlier, plastic does not boast as much friction as wood does. This is detrimental because the materials and products can easily end up sliding or falling off the pallet if you are not careful. Thus, this is something you should be wary of.
Moreover, you need to be sure you purchase quality plastic otherwise the pallet can easily be too weak and susceptible to breakages.

Plastic pallet is the pallet made from plastic material like, HDPE or PP.
HDPE is High-density polyethylene or polyethylene high-density is a thermoplastic polymer produced from the monomer ethylene. It is sometimes called “alkathene” or “polythene” when used for HDPE pipes
PP is Polypropylene material
Polypropylene (PP) is a thermoplastic “addition polymer” made from the combination of propylene monomers. It is used in a variety of applications to include packaging for consumer products, plastic parts for various industries including the automotive industry, special devices like living hinges, and textiles.
