Why are the lead boards on a pallet so important?
The lead boards on a pallet are the deck boards that are located at the leading edges of the top and/or bottom of wooden pallets. The lead deck board performs critical functions in product protection and in material handling.
When pallets are damaged during handling, the damage almost always occurs to the leading deck boards. Because of this, there are several improvements that can be made to a pallet design in order to alleviate lead deck board damage.
