We all know the importance of doing our bit to save the planet by fighting climate change and protecting the earth’s natural resources.
At PALLITE®, as manufacturers of alternative pallets and pallet boxes made from more than 80% recycled materials and themselves 100% recyclable after use, it would be easy for us to rest on our laurels, believing we have done our bit – by helping others to do theirs.
But we know the pressure our customers are under. Today’s increasingly environmentally-conscious consumers consider a company’s ‘green’ credentials to be as important as any other factor when choosing where to spend their money.
So, businesses need more than just a product that is made from recycled materials and able to be disposed of in an environmentally-friendly way. But, at the same time, they need to consider their bottom line. So, how can you look after the planet, without it costing you the earth?
PALLITE® is the answer
We have developed a range of packaging products that are environmentally-friendly by design AND in use, having been proven in independent tests to have less potential to contribute to global warming than some of the less eco-friendly options out there. Thanks to their innovative design, our products are genuine equivalents – super strong and capable of lifting heavy loads with ease as well as transporting valuable goods without crushing. What’s more, they can also reduce the total cost of distributing products thanks to a number of benefits, not least significant weight savings and the ability to be tailored to the optimum footprint for a shipping container.
Environmentally-friendly in use
PALLITE® products continue to save the planet each and every time you use them.
Independent tests found the standard PALLITE® pallet, used on a 1,500-mile journey by sea, results in 8.29kg less carbon dioxide equivalent than an equivalent wooden pallet. Translation? Using a PALLITE® pallet results in lower greenhouse gas emissions and therefore has less potential to contribute to global warming.
For example, substituting 30 wooden euro pallets with wooden collars and lids, each carrying a 500kg load, for the same number of PALLITE® euro pallet boxes, loading them on board an 8,000-tonne container ship and travelling the 11,907 nautical miles (22,052km) from Felixstowe dock to Shanghai in China would result in greenhouse gas emissions savings the equivalent of charging 63,119 smartphones.

The weight savings that come with using PALLITE® pallet boxes instead of wooden pallets and crates would also contribute to fuel savings – saving money for the shipping company – and reduce your distribution costs.
With the potential for both environmental and financial savings to be made on every journey, it is clear that PALLITE® products are a great choice for companies transporting goods by sea freight.
