IN TODAY’S MONEY THAT IS A 30 USD SELL PRICE.
THIS WAS SOME YEARS AGO. A KOREAN APPROACH. IT DID NOT GO AHEAD.
SOME TRICKERY WAS PLAYED OUT.
NOT THE FAULT OF THE INSTITUTION.
BUT THE BELIEF AND CONVICTION WAS THERE.
WE ADVANCED SINCE THEN.
30 USD TODAY? ON A LEASE OR RENTAL BASIS????? NOT BAD. BUT TOO LATE.
WAIT FOR THE BOOK.

ATTITUDE AGAIN. WHO CARES? IS IT THERE TO BE KNOCKED AROUND?
Posted on 15 August 2018 | 2:08 am
AND IT IS STILL THERE, MAYBE.

BUT THEY ARE STILL NOT CHEP PALLETS.
There was a reason for the underneath plank being recessed.
The business has since gone out of business…..

In 2008 The Formation and Structure of the China Pallet Pool presentation was put forward at the annual industry meeting of the Professional Pallet Committee of the China Federation of Logistics and Purchasing hosted by the Asia Pallet System Federation.
And as an independent organisation FOR ALL.
The opportunity was missed.
The industry is still leaping ahead in scope, ability, standardisation and professionalism, with private enterprise fighting for market share just like elsewhere in the West. This will continue with tough and capable competition using mostly wood, then plastic and some composites, with steel lagging somewhere behind, for now.

How many? How long? What ending?

There is nearly ONE metre of thin tree trunk in the blocks alone.
NOTE THE AGE CIRCLES that the blocks are cut from.
The pallet is 1200 x 830 X 140 and an unusual size made for a purpose, but not to accommodate what was shrink wrapped upon it.
The efficiency or lack of is evident in the block wood splitting when nails are inserted. This one may have lasted for two trips only, an import shipment then a regional delivery. That is it. After a final shipment it considered trash, no recall, no charge, not wanted anymore, keep it. This is a market pooling companies do not see any opportunity in due to complexities and costs. No wonder so many pallets are utilised by innovative persons in building seats, sheds, fences and the like. No wonder there is thankfully a major recycling industry in the USA.
No wonder there IS a pooling industry or the environmental damage effects would accumulate and be much worse.
BUT if one million new wood pallets are manufactured for one pooling company every year operating in one country and region does that not indicate a problem? Does it not mean a similar though variable amount is wasted?
But a thin cold rolled material steel pallet with a zinc coating has value. It can be sold, reprocessed at a fraction of the energy it cost to initially make, and reformed using automated equipment, again and again and again and again. YES. There is no denial.

The following is from the year 2000, so only 18 years old, and by an aluminum (aluminium) pallet supplier, still around today, maybe with a name change. The unit price in 2018 is typical USD 260 for small quantity. Here is one supplier who maintained a place, their niche. Good. This was before lightweight galvanised steel pallets were considered viable at a fraction of the cost, so at the time outside the equation. Note the wood pallet lifespan of two years. I have other verification for this however there are many variables. The days of wood pallets in volume, though they have their place, are limited. Did you read the news today? More on this to come with images and some analytical detail.

Here is a photo of a four pallet shipment for CHEP two years ago. It included a 1200 x 1000 four way entry version pallet. The others are Australian standard size 1165 x 1165 a national standard unique in all the world. The bottom one was stainless steel with all four carried on a wood pallet. One was minus a centre stringer. CHEP picked the pallets up and delivered them back intact and undamaged which was appreciated.
Most were early concept pallets with about 13 years of exposure to the elements.
About 300 kilometres were involved. IMO a far cry from the FHG IPP Logipal approach where near 20,000 kilometres were involved all at others expense.

This has to come about. There is considerable supply fragmentation at the moment plus good product and less than good internationally. There is no world wide flat steel pallet standard. Everything is judged on a WOOD pallet testing regime where components are held together with nails. Some plastic pallet people having invented their own standard so that it roughly complies. But many do not seem to care. A steel pallet association will one day eventuate and have members around the globe and then maybe a flat steel pallet universal standard will come about, if the divisive arguments are overcome.

IPP Logipal is one of the leading pallet and box rental providers to fast moving consumer goods supply chains and to industrial sectors across Europe. They upgrade their pallet pool with at least 1,000,000 NEW pallets every year.
A pre arranged lightweight steel sample was air freighted on 11th August 2012.
The website is impressive.
But no detail review. No trial. Just an opinion.
One way to go is to start a new exclusive lightweight steel pallet pool for those who ARE interested – and they do exist. The key is rental and supply where and when needed for as long as needed. We support the pooling concept, always have.

Goods have been delivered from overseas transferred to Australian standard pallets then at destination transferred with an inverter onto owned warehouse pallets. Then these are ready for collection. An efficient scheme. Except the warehouse racked pallets were cheapies and had breaking issues.

Cheap. Tax deductible. A business expense. Who cares?
The money is on what it carries.
Posted on 20 July 2018 | 6:19 am
Messy, but it worked, heat applied and stuck fast. Heavy industry application.
The need justifies the cost. No grommets here.

The Asia/Pacific region, led by China, will post the strongest unit sales increases of any regional market, averaging 8.1 percent per year through 2017. This region will also overtake North America to become the largest regional market by 2017, when it will account for one-third of the global total. Sales advances across the region will be spurred by climbing manufacturing activity and increased adoption of pallets by new users. China will experience the largest gains of any national market in the world and will account for over one-fifth of total global unit demand in 2017.
WHY DID WE POST THE CHINA PALLET INTERNATIONAL CONFERENCE GROWTH?

Early days. Special specific industry size, load and function specification. Note the four bearers. Today, length, width, height, varied load, capped, uncapped, anti slip, varied decks, 55% to 100% contact cover, special lead edges, RFID approved, etc. etc. No paint needed but colour coding to suit OK. Very durable galvanised material. That is this pallet range, but there are others. Check Alibaba.

It is 2013. Note the numbers that year. Pallet industry national leaders, specialists, and industry suppliers.

THIS UNFORTUNATELY SEEMS OR IS PERMANENT. THE PALLET WAS DUMPED.

IT DOES NOT MATTER IF PRODUCT IS MADE FROM WOOD, PLASTIC OR STEEL.
QUALITY CONTROL IS NOT ALWAYS THE ISSUE.
MINIMISATION IS THE KEYWORD.
OR IT IS REPAIR AND KEEP, OR SCRAP AT COST (EXCEPT STEEL)
IS THERE A SOLUTION? YES.

Rivets hold airliners together for their service lifetime, 30 plus years. There is no worry.
Nails fall out. Rivets do not.
Deck rivet protrusions are hidden and recessed into the void of the bearers.
Welding is an alternative.

An early Asian copy attempt using inferior material. We do NOT do this.
Our REAL pallet has NO RUST after 100,000 hours of exposure to the elements.

Just imagine, no that is too watery, just think hard, that the raw material used for lightweight steel pallets when reaching the end of useful life after being rented out (hire and de-hire) and reprocessed at a greatly reduced energy cost than before then be available for forming and assembly into steel pallets again without any quality degradation. This time the material is an asset, owned not acquired at cost. Therefore the newer pallets will be even cheaper (more economical) than before and reused for finished product repeatedly for decades, for rent or sale. Wood cannot do that nor plastic without degrading.
With volume production automated robotic assembly will decrease the cost further.
Think about 20,000,000 steel pallets out there on this basis (Australia and New Zealand). Depending on pallet size, quantity and purpose say 500,000 tonnes of steel material being reused, reused, reused and reused. This would avoid cutting annually up to 500,000 tonnes of wood.
Then would the lightweight steel pallet come close in price to a hardwood pallet? A game changer? A valid example? DYOR.
Etc. etc. etc.

With pollution of all kinds increasing we believe economical lightweight non organic galvanised repairable steel pallets not only have a future but are the future. This means not just a small slot in the market but a major player that can or will involve product rental and leasing, asset and pooling operations management, tracking services, repairs, and infinite recycling to use again without material degradation.
That means minimising pollution and adding value. In business it means multiple revenue streams with positive outcomes plus aiding the logistics industry vital for supplies around the planet.
The question is in this generation or the next? What do you think?
