A Pallet Material Comparison

This by others is from 20 years ago so increase the unit costs accordingly. Steel is not mentioned and aluminum (U.S. spelling) is being pushed. These days things are different. The average two year lifespan for a wooden pallet seems similar today including repairs. Available coated thin gauge steel is no longer “heavy” repairable if necessary and certainly durable. Today in bulk and mass produced the steel cost is a winner.
