Supply and demand for used plastic pallets is already, by nature, organized chaos. Add in the recent global pandemic and the market is being thrown one curve ball after another.
First, inventory was scooped up by early panic buying. Then, trade restrictions forced import and export activity to plunge. As world economies responded to change, some industries came to a screeching halt while others ramped up to around-the-clock manufacturing. These unprecedented disruptions strained certain segments of the used pallet market.
Here at Nelson Company, we have routinely sold truckload after truckload of used square plastic pallets. Our customers have enjoyed an ample, inbound stock of used 43x43 and 45x45 plastic pallets.
What happens when used stock dries up while the demand doesn't? It's time to shop for a new pallet. For customers buying square plastic pallets, we're announcing a brand new pallet to help fill the void.
Introducing the 45x45 CP9 Plastic Pallet
After many years of idea sharing and potential designs, we're excited to have a 45x45 plastic pallet that will be produced right here in the US. The new NPP-4545-FP-CP9 is the quintessential CP9 Chemical Pallet in plastic. This full-perimeter beauty offers:
The NPP-4545-FP-CP9 is a great fit for bulk bags, Gaylords, drums or any industry moving bags or boxes. If double stacking unit loads, six broad runners protect bottom pallet cargo by dispersing the weight evenly.
Always Have a Plan
Even in the best of times, pallet inventories can unexpectedly dry up. Do you have a back-up plan? Preparing now can eliminate headaches and anxiety later.
Samples of the NPP-4545-FP-CP9 are available for immediate shipping. Request your sample today and put this new 45x45 plastic pallet design to the test in your handling environment.
