Can a PALLITE® pallet be used in automated systems or on palletisers?

Yes – we can add a conveyor frame to your PALLITE® pallet or PALLITE® pallet box. This way you’re not limited to where and when you can use it. It’s best to speak to a member of our team, so they can make sure you choose the right type of frame. You can send them a message here.

Can the PALLITE® Range be used in open-beam racking?

Yes – PALLITE® products can be configured for use in open-beam racking. We just need to know the weight and type of load that you need to carry.

How can I increase container utilisation by up to 28.5%?

Based on the following calculations, you could increase container utilisation by 28.5%:

40ft Container specification:

Internal width – 2,350mm / Internal height – 2,390mm / Internal length – 12,032mm / Cubic capacity – 67.50m3

Euro Pallet Dimensions Including Pallet – 1200mm x 800mm x 1150mm

Number of Euro Pallets in a 40ft Container – 20

Total pallets per container if double stacked – 40

Total capacity used – 44.2m3

Total % capacity used – 65.5%

PALLITE® Dimensions – 1150mm x 800mm x 1150mm

Number of PALLITE®s in 40ft Container – 30

Total pallets per container if double stacked – 60

Total capacity used – 63.5m3 | Total % capacity used – 94.0%

Total capacity increase = 28.5%

How can I save money on air freight?

Based on the following calculations, you could save over £61.00 per pallet.

Air freight cost per kg (based on UK to Dubai) – £2.92 per kg (correct March 2019)

Euro wooden pallet – 25kg

PALLITE® Euro Pallet – 4.05kg

Saving – 20.95kg

20.95kg x £2.92 = £61.17

How heavy is a PALLITE® Pallet?

A standard PALLITE® pallet weighs from 4.05kg, which is well below health and safety guidelines for lifting above elbow height. That means there’s less risk of injury in the workplace, which reduces lost work days and ultimately makes a much happier workforce.

How much can a PALLITE® Pallet Carry?

We get asked this question a lot. A PALLITE® pallet is made from paper, so it surely can’t carry that much – right? Wrong. A standard PALLITE® pallet can hold up to 750kg in open-beam racking, and bespoke versions can hold much more – it all depends on the specification. If you talk to our team, they’ll help you find the right PALLITE® for your supply chain. You can contact them here.

How much weight can I save by changing from a wooden crate and pallet, to a PALLITE® pallet box?

Based on the following calculations, you could reduce weight by 80%

Euro Wooden Pallet – 25kg

Euro Pallet Collars – 8.1kg each (195mm)

Euro Plywood Crate Lid – 5kg

PALLITE® Euro Box – 12.4kg

((Pallet = 25kg) + (4x Collars = 32.4kg) + (Lid = 5kg) = 62.4kg) – 12.4kg = 50kg

50kg / 62.4kg = 80.13%

How much weight can I save by changing from a wooden pallet to a PALLITE® pallet?

Based on the following calculations, you could reduce weight by 83%

Wooden Euro Pallet – 25kg

PALLITE® Euro Pallet = 4.05kg

Wooden Pallet Weight 25kg – PALLITE® Pallet Weight 4.05g = 20.95kg

20.95/25kg = 83%

Is a PALLITE® Pallet waterproof?

PALLITE® pallet can be successfully used in wet environments, but we recommend that you avoid long-term exposure to water. Its strength is due to the layers of glue acting as barriers between the sheets of paper, so it can withstand more water than corrugate. The papers we use also have a high resistance to moisture. We thoroughly test all our products. You can learn more about testing here.

What industries is a PALLITE® pallet suitable for?

The PALLITE® range can be used in most industries. We’ve found it’s a popular choice in the food ingredients, pharmaceutical and automotive sectors, and for those that send air freight. Not in one of these industries? We work with a lot of other clients too. Why not speak to one of our team and ask about what other experience we have?

What sizes does the PALLITE® range come in?

The PALLITE® range can be provided in any size. We manufacture both UK Standard and Euro sizes, but we also create bespoke items – be it to ship a standard sized pallet, a sofa, a tv, or even a car!

Why is a PALLITE® pallet ideal for export?

It’s light, weighing from 3.8kg, so you’ll save money on your air freight fees. It’s also ISPM15-exempt so you don’t have to purchase expensive heat-treated pallets, ultimately saving you even more money.

Why should we use a PALLITE® over a corrugate pallet?

It’s simple – it’s so much stronger. You won’t have to worry about your pallets or pallet boxes collapsing in transit.

Why should we use a PALLITE® pallet over a wooden pallet?

  1. There’s less risk of contamination because it’s cleaner
  2. You save money on transport costs because it’s lighter
  3. It reduces the risk of damaged stock because it resists mould
  4. There’s less risk of contamination / injury because there are no nails or splinters
  5. It has a smaller environmental impact and is manufactured from sustainable sources
  6. You can earn money back through recycling
