The best use for a wood pallet is returning it to be used again as a pallet.
Properly maintained and managed, a well-built wood pallet is one of the most sustainable products in the marketplace. To that point, we’ve documented wood pallets in some of our pools that have been in service for over 10 years!
The Germans really know how to host a tradeshow.
Last month I was fortunate enough to attend the Interpack show in Dusseldorf, Germany. Since Nelson Company is always looking for fresh product ideas, I was charged with checking out what is said to be the world’s leading trade fair.
2,700 exhibitors from 60 countries were providing inspiration and ideas for the packaging industry and all related process technologies. While there I saw everything - equipment and machinery for packaging and processing, production tools for packaging materials, services for the industry and of course, plastic pallets and containers.
Having been a regular at several of the US based material handling trade shows, I generally see 4-6 plastic pallet manufacturers at each show. After walking the 17 - that’s right, 17 exhibit halls - I saw more than 15 companies that produce plastic pallets and bins. It was truly a “one stop shop”.
Why are my lumber costs so high? Why are my pallets not available? By this time we all know the answer. We are experiencing an imbalance between the high demand and the global supply of wood.
In addition to the issues of supply and demand, there are several factors contributing to rising costs and lack of availability.
Exhibiting at the EastPack Show June 10-12, 2014 at the Jacob K Javits Convention Center in New York City was a very exciting opportunity for Nelson Company.
EastPack gathers numerous industry sectors all in one place. Just to name a few, we met up with visitors representing everything from Food & Beverage and Cosmetics to Pharmaceutical and Medical. Visitors to the Nelson booth were interested in solutions for shipping challenges. Even though their industries may have differed, their questions were often very similar.
