Polymer Logistics Challenges Pallet Status Quo
Over half a century ago, says Gideon Feiner, CEO of Polymer Logistics, early wood pallets were a brilliant innovation, except for one problem. The wood blocks attached under the top deck of those early loading platforms were fragile, and could easily break off or the pallet could collapse. In response to this issue, pallets needed a bottom deck to keep those blocks or stringers intact.
Unfortunately, Feiner continues, decades of pallet designers perpetuated those earliest inefficiencies, as have material handling system designers in general. As a result, supply chains still deal with the legacy of those early models, notably such issues as heavy weight, poor cube efficiency, high damage rates, and porosity. Feiner explains that it was really necessary to start from a clean slate in looking at opportunities to eliminate such inefficiencies.
Resulting from such an approach, Polymer Logistics is now announcing the introduction of its “CleanPal” nestable plastic pallet to the US market. The company reports having pilot programs with two customers, and involving four categories of perishable products, namely produce, bakery, dairy and meat.
“Wood pallets became the standard in last fifty years, but they are far from ideal,” adds Polymer Logistic USA COO Danny Bartal. “They are very inefficient in the transport of empties, wasting storage space. All this leads to very expensive operational costs.” Read more.
