Ecodek Corrugated Pallets will save your company money, here's how:
Truckload Freight Cost:
How much empty space are you shipping on each load? Ship more per load with a combination of a lower profile & correct sized paper pallet.
Unlike wood or plastic pallets, which are primarily available with a limited number of standard sizes, Ecodek Corrugated Paper Pallets can be manufactured in an extensive array of custom pallet sizes. In addition, stringer and block dimensions (length, width, height) can be manufactured depending on the specific needs of the application, such as two-way or four-way entry. The result is an extremely cost-effective solution customized to your exact load, size and weight requirements maximizing truckloads, and getting more units per truck load.
Sea Freight Costs:
Export regulations put overseas shipments one of the primary jobs our pallets perform. Built using a weather-resistant starch, our pallets are up to the task in these humid environments. Additionally, Corrugated Pallets can sometimes save as much as double the cost of the corrugated pallet, making them ideal for overseas exporting.
Save up to 30% because heat and chemical treatments are unnecessary (ISPM 15 exempt). Export regulation IPPC ISPM-15 requires pallets to be heat-treated or fumigated with proper documentation before many countries will except the container containing your shipping platform. These added procedures and expense are costly. Ecodek pallets are exempt from all export regulations, which can save you money on pallets and from the exorbitant expense of having your load rejected overseas.
When shipping full truckloads, if you own your own trucks or negotiate a rate with a carrier, your company can save money. Using estimates provided by the EPA (EPA 420-F-04-005), reducing 3,000 pounds from a heavy truck could save between 200 and 500 gallons of fuel each year, eliminating 2 to 5 metric tons of greenhouse gas emissions annually. Ecodek Paper Pallets are on average 30+ lbs. lighter than the average wooden pallet; for every 100 wooden pallets replaced with Ecodek pallets removes 3,000 pounds of weight, drastically reducing the fuel necessary to haul your product, helping to reduce green house gas emissions and your overall cost to get your product to its final destination.
Lowers your other packaging costs:
Often the weight of a wood or plastic pallet can be more than your other packaging can support when stacked multiple layers high, forcing your company to upgrade packaging to support your warehouse and shipping needs. On the flip side, after switching to paper pallets, companies have been able to reduce their packaging.
Also, a lot of companies require a sheet of corrugated to protect their packaging/product from wood pallets. With Corrugated Pallets, the top deck is the required sheet of corrugated, eliminating the cost associated with the sheet and placing the sheet before palletizing each unit.
No secondary wood pallet costs:
Wood pallet can cause damage, exposing your product to nail heads, mold and mildew, shards of wood can lead to product rejection. Ecodek Corrugated Pallets are engineered to be strong enough to carry your product safely, eliminating the worry and expense caused by wooden pallets. Additionally Ecodek Pallets are constructed entirely from the same FDA approved materials used in the construction of cereal boxes.
