The used plastic pallet market in the US has grown substantially over the past few years due to the increased enforcement of ISPM-15 regulations.
Because of these regulations and the ever increasing sales of plastic pallets, there are large quantities of plastic pallets carrying imported goods into the US. In most cases, these plastic pallets are made from high quality plastic resin and used only one time. They are generally able to be used again.
Many different sizes are available and the demand is growing. The availability of these plastic pallets presents a great opportunity for those that are able to accumulate them and sell them to someone who may be able to use them again.

Is creating or improving visibility in your distribution chain at the top of your priority list? If your answer is no, we urge you to reconsider.
Supply or distribution chain visibility is part of supply/distribution chain management. Having visibility means you can see how well you are managing the “flow” of your goods.
Creating visibility can generate some major benefits for your company. Here are our top three reasons why creating visibility should be on your agenda.
“One-Way shipping” aka “Single Trip” aka “Send and Forget”.
Why would anyone ship goods on a plastic pallet if they can’t get that pallet back? Not so long ago, this was the thinking when it came to “One-Way Shipping” or “Single Trip” logistics. This logic was based on the fact that plastic pallets were expensive and it took several weeks to get them due to slow and infrequent production schedules. Today, it’s a new frontier.
