How do you know if a pallet design is going to be successful? You test it of course!
The goal of a pallet test is to compare different pallet designs, materials and their performance. There are numerous laboratory tests for evaluating all aspects of the pallet. However, the most important pallet tests fall within three parameters for pallet design:

i need your advice, firstly, for plastic pallet put on drive-in racking system, open bottom pallet is the most appropriate pallet? or close bottom pallet will do?
The pallet design will depend on the load requirements, handling equipment and environment. This factors will determine the best pallet to use. Both drive in racking systems and cold/frozen environments are harsh requirements. Stronger, stiffer pallets are generally needed for most drive in racking systems. Cold/Frozen environments can make pallets more susceptible to damage.
