1 BILLION PALLETS PER YEARPosted: April 23, 2019
At least 1,000,000,000 pallets are produced NEW every year. This is conservative. It is likely 50% more than that. According to industry estimates the smaller figure equates to 166,000,000 tress cut down for processing softwood and hardwood. They have to be regrown. Do you see an as yet unrecognized problem looming?
What about the greenhouse gas effect? Wait till the “greenies” wake up to this and then government.
Plastic pallets are not a long lasting solution. They originate from oil.
Lightweight steel? This is another thing currently overlooked, but not for long.
