Lightweight, Extra Strong, All Steel Bailey Pallet™
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.

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.

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 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.
Posted on 20 June 2018 | 1:56 am
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?

Inorganic! It can be recycled endlessly without material degrading unlike plastic and hardwood pallets and in volume will match the sale price or as an asset rental leave them for dead. Recycling processed steel is much cheaper than the original production. All pallets need repairs at some time this is why we use rivets and not welds, unless specified otherwise.
Posted on 16 May 2018 | 2:51 am
This is the first and only lightweight galvanised steel pallet type to pass the test. Note the readers set up at the warehouse door. The RFID pallet and load tracking industry has advanced considerably since then and the cost reduced on tags.

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.

Based on industry estimates, Berg Insight reported that the global base of pallets used for transportation is around 10 billion units. http://www.steelpalletsystems.com

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
Posted on 28 October 2017 | 3:40 am
We use pre galvanized high quality durable material. No rust.
Posted on 28 October 2017 | 3:20 am
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.
Posted on 28 October 2017 | 3:17 am
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.

EARLY DAYS. Further samples were added for proof of concept, and all sizes, all weights, all capacities, riveted or welded, all designed for mass production and to handle application modifications. IP granted.

There is no way steel or metal is near the end of development in a very competitive area, though in this market economy is always the key. Do your searching, check it out.
