We built the world's smallest Ecodek Corrugated Pallets. Measuring 4 1/4” x 3” x 3/4” these little pallets feature 4-way forklift access and a die-cut bottom deck for pallet jacks; if tiny material handling equipment exist. Each pallet has $50 worth of amazon gift cards strapped on top. These mini pallets have been donated to be used as a prize for a golf outing hosted by a valued customer.
Corrugated Pallets are gaining traction due to the increased emphasis of suppliers on sustainability
Companies and manufacturers are always looking for a cost savings, and in today's shipping environment it also wants to use products that are sustainable and good for the environment. When every bit of packaging is evaluated, the wood pallet is no exception.
An example is Walmart’s recent launch of Project Gigaton which is aimed and eliminated one gigaton of emissions by 2030.
Back in 2011 Ikea estimated they would save 193 million dollars per year by switching to corrugated pallets. Ikea saved not only in weight, and recyclability but also by using a shorter pallet they were able to ship more product than if they used a wood pallet with a standard 3.5” height
Corrugated pallets will continue to increase in this trend of “on demand packaging” and sustainability as an alternative to the traditional wood pallet.
October 7th is National Manufacturing Day. At Green Label Packaging we are proud to have designed and built a few million Ecodek corrugated pallets used ship to products by other manufacturers all over the United States and internationally. October 7th is also world smile day. That makes us happy.
