Lightweight, Extra Strong, All Steel Bailey Pallet™
& Ocean Clean-up Foundation
The immense mass of predominantly plastic waste floats halfway between California and Hawaii, as a large part of the more than five trillion pieces of plastic garbage currently polluting our planet’s most precious resource. The Ocean Cleanup Foundation has spearheaded the recently published research, explaining that the wind and convergence of ocean currents are what gather so much of it into one place.
The “patch” contains more than 1.8 trillion pieces of garbage and weighs approximately 88,000 tons. That is the rough equivalent of 500 jumbo jets — and more than 16 times the size of previous estimates. It has nearly doubled the size of Texas — and is bigger than France, Germany, and Spain combined.
PS This patch is just one. There are more in other oceans.

Yes, all scrapped at cost or for recycling but NOT into the same product. Steel, once the ore is out the ground and manufactured, at point of product disuse, can be recycled at value and manufactured into the same product using reduced energy time and time again WITHOUT any degrading quality. You don’t do that with wood or plastic.

The product exists but it is the method that counts. The path to the big market needs a service similar to Peco, Loscam, Chep or Logipal. So accept starting small like an acorn to then grow big, not with wood or plastic but with lightweight galvanized steel which is an asset more durable than wood. http://www.steelpalletsystems.com

For this big diverse market some financial and personal advice and assistance can be helpful. http://www.steelpalletsystems.com

We use pre galvanized high quality durable material. No rust.

In volume using slit coil steel, roll forming, steel sheet automated punching, bending and robotic fixing and assembly, this could be USD50 – 60 delivered, and leasable or rentable down to cents per day. What type and capacity do you want and how many? Think tens and hundreds of thousands. The more the less and it could be cheaper. Volume counts. http://www.steelpalletsystems.com.

Yes, and a true lightweight, lighter than a hardwood pallet. Depending on size and purpose which is variable and allowing for typical capacity and whether double sided, single sided, two way entry 15kg to 26kg or more, all galvanized. http://www.steelpalletsystems.com

Industry observations, analysis and comments.
J.R. Simplot, one of the world’s largest private food and agribusiness companies, recently made a change in the pallets it uses inside its 380,000-square-foot processing facility in Caldwell, Idaho. At any given time, more than 24,000 pallets are in circulation for transporting finished products – from frozen French fries and veggies to packages to be used in prepared meals – between finished product packaging, frozen storage, and shipping docks. For outbound rail shipments, products are removed from their pallets via slip-sheets into railcars using a push/pull system. For truck-loading, unit loads are similarly removed from in-house pallets and transferred to inexpensive shipping pallets.
“Wooden pallets can be challenging because as they age they leave wooden pieces everywhere, and you’ve got to repair and/or replace them frequently,” said Gary Bleazard, project engineer, providing background on why the change was made. “Even with very careful handling, wood can splinter and penetrate cases and packages, creating the potential for foreign material to enter the product.”
Preventing these risks required constant vigilance, and resulted in the plant deploying one person working 24 hours a day “whose job it was to do nothing but inspect and sort pallets,” Bleazard says. Pallets that couldn’t be rotated from the dock back to the plant were sent to an outside service provider for repairs, and pallets would be repaired many times – some more than 10 – until further repairs were no longer viable. Additional labor was also required to keep the facility clean and clear of wood debris, again, to ensure food safety compliance and maximum productivity. “We have wooden pallets that have been in operation for 3+ years as they are stamped. They may have been repaired 10+ times,” says Bleazard.

In memory of Keith Cunningham, posted on the day of his funeral 23rd August 2016. He was a good friend, a co-director, a logistics industry specialist, and constant conscientious supporter of, and believer in, the future for this lightweight steel pallet. He was also an Ex CHEP man with 14 years experience, and much more in transport and logistics. Suddenly gone but not forgotten.

Through our associate company a 100% anti-slip steel surface is available, all welded, no rivets.
Posted on 20 January 2016 | 9:46 am
In association with others Steel Pallet Systems International can now supply WELDED steel pallets in volume.
The welded system is preferable in some food chains compared to using riveted pallets where the perception is they can fall out, even though they hold Boeing 747’s and others together for the life of the aircraft.
Welded pallets are not repairable just disposable if damaged to be unusable.
The finish is still galvanised. Painting is an option.
The DIFFERENCE is they are disposable in volume for value (revenue) instead of cost. A hardwood pallet can cost $5 to dispose of – all based on weight. Check your local disposal circumstances.

Hardwood for paper, for furniture, but for wood pallets????
Are there sufficient purpose-oriented constraints in certain countries?
Posted on 8 October 2015 | 11:43 am
Wood. From cut raw organic material to finished product to scrap and recycling – into what, and how many times?
Steel: From mined inorganic material to finished product and infinite recycling (at greatly reduced cost) back to steel for new steel pallets without degrading the material. Do you get the drift?

Posted on 4 February 2015 | 6:45 am
Note the blunt lead edges, horizontal just like wood, and vertical over the bearer ends, making ground handling by fork operators easier.
There are no cavities in the bearers, so they are debris free.
There is NO absorption of liquids in this material.
If necessary the pallet is easy to hose down and clean.
These pallets are 100% “fire safe”.
More news to come.

At FEFPEB’s 65th congress, entitled “Packaging and pallets in a competitive European Union” and held in Brussels, FEFPEB’s secretariat reported on industry statistics, which showed an encouraging increase in the number of pallets manufactured within its member countries. Approximately 401 million pallets were made during 2013, up from 371 million in 2010 and 339 million in 2006.
Comment: Pallet demand is up, continuing and growing, and the selective need for re-usable alternatives increasing.

Lead edge damage is one thing and out-of-alignment damage is another, and harder by far, if practical and economical, to repair.

That is after two years in usage.

That website has nothing to do with the Steel Pallet System’s light weight steel ‘bailey pallet’.
Oregon Pallet registered the www name for its wood pallet refurbishing site in Boise Idaho USA. The real bailey pallet from Steel Pallet Systems, named after the designer and in existence for many years, has nothing to do with wood pallets or Oregon Pallet. Make no mistake.

On January 6 2014 a company called rm2 (www.rm2.com) with a fibre glass composite pallet listed on the Alternative Investment Market of the London Stock Exchange and raised GBP137,000,000 (AUD252,000,000 equivalent).

Steel Pallet Systems Pty Ltd with the ultimate lightweight steel pallet is no longer available on ASSOB from 31 March 2014.
A competitor with strong backing listed on the London AIM on 6 January for AUD equivalent of S252 million.
This is hard evidence of where a new innovative material pallet could go.
It is admirable to see an entity like rm2 move ahead so fast with excellent financial backing, progressive ideas and commitment.

Aside from ALIBABA’s recent decision to add “Steel Pallet Systems” to their website offering, or in reality to attract more potential customers to their website, they have NOT understood the English Language usage. Check it out and you see pallet racking products, not steel pallets. One could use an adjective beginning with “I”, and some more, but best not to.
Steel Pallet Systems is used in reality for a flat pallet base system, IP protected, easily adjusted in manufacture to all the domestic and international standard sizes including special dimensions without costly capital expenditure for equipment to produce each size e.g. plastic forming machines. A pallet system adaptable for various loads, including excessive ones.
It is the most economical, functional, repairable (i.e. non welded), lightweight, galvanised, so durable, steel pallet option in existence, that cannot be improved upon (some have tried), and is designed for VOLUME usage that will compete with the ex factory cost of of a hardwood pallet and at end of life is worth money not expense. It is the ULTIMATE STEEL PALLET now and for the future.
It does NOT have to be a full perimeter four way entry block pallet variation for obvious, or not so obvious to some, reasons. If one has a question on this and seeks clarification please email email@example.com.
Just one aspect for consideration. A matter of design and quality. First our steel pallet.
Below another metal pallet. It is an un-necessary imitation in steel of a block pallet.
We are NOT closed minded to product innovation including the use of plastic or composite parts, if necessary for a user and cost efficient. This does not mean we cannot make a heavier duty IBC version or a small Euro version.
But to compete with hard wood pallets, VOLUME is needed. VOLUME!
One tree = six wood pallets, and they do not last long. One durable and repairable steel pallet used correctly will preserve many trees.
Or scrap it for value not expense.
And with no nails, no splinters, no paint, clean and easily cleanable, with no absorption of chemical, oils or any liquid.
Posted on 27 March 2014 | 8:05 pm
An example photo of a heavy duty steel pallet is below, in this case using hardwood lead edges.
It has all the benefits but relatively costly? Yes!
POINT: Even this will not deter the eager, active, busy and careless fork lift driver from excessively damaging the pallet, ANY pallet.
So stick with a lightweight version, variable in gauge and capacity YES, but repairable and economically disposable if excessively damaged, and in volume acquired at a competitive with hardwood and better than repeat use plastic pallet price, and rental effective. Most importantly if handled with care by fork lift drivers it will last for ten, twenty and thirty years.

LIMITED LEAD EDGE DAMAGE TO A PLASTIC PALLET.
ONCE SEVERE ENOUGH FOR OPERATIONS THIS IS NOT REPAIRABLE, JUST WASTED, AT COST.
OUR STEEL PALLET, WITH ALL THE ADVANTAGES, WHEN ORDERED IN VOLUME, WILL COST LESS THAN A DURABLE REPEAT-USE PLASTIC PALLET.

The end of a block pallet.
What’s the point (among others)?
It is only good for scrap at cost and grinding into wood chip for various purposes and will never be a pallet again. That would have to come from new growth trees felled for the purpose.
A badly damaged real purpose steel pallet will be disposed of at value, not cost, reprocessed into the same material at far reduced energy than originally used, and formed into a brand new pallet, again, and again, INFINITELY with NO material degradation.
