Aluminium pallets are usually used for storing and transporting heavy goods by air or sea, and they are particularly used by businesses that store goods outdoors.
This type of pallet is also popular for use in walk-in fridges and freezers. The most popular metal pallet is an aluminum pallet, as they are strong and hygienic.
The benefits of aluminum pallets
There are many different reasons why businesses prefer and purchase aluminum pallets. We have listed seven of these below:
• Superior strength compared to plastic and wooden pallets
• Will not rot or decay during poor weather conditions
• Not susceptible to pests unlike wooden pallets
• Will not splinter or crack easily
• Environmentally friendly as they are recyclable
• Suitable for food, chemical, and pharmaceutical industries as they are easy to clean
With any product, there are some downsides and the aluminum pallet is the same. If you are transporting a lot of products, you may find that your costs will increase, as aluminum pallets are significantly heavier than other types of pallets.
With this in mind, you may also find that moving these pallets from A to B will be more labour-intensive. They may also slow down how quickly you can load and unload your stock. However for you, like a lot of others, the pros may outweigh the cons.
Taking your business into consideration
The individual circumstances of your business will be what the final decision ultimately boils down to when deciding which pallets you should purchase.
Once purchased, an aluminum pallet requires little in the way of maintenance and can stand many years of transporting, even in extreme weather conditions.
Investing in metal pallets is a smart business move as, while you may have to pay more initially, they are cost-effective in the long run as you do not have to replace on a regular basis.
