Pallet Design System Adds New Languages

Pallet Design System™ adds new languages. Industry standard software now delivers pallet specifications and analysis results in Dutch, English, French, German, Italian, Portuguese, Spanish and Swedish.

The National Wooden Pallet and Container Association (NWPCA) has released an updated version of the Pallet Design System™, PDS v.5.4©, that generates pallet specifications and analysis results in the following languages: English, Dutch, French, German, Italian, Portuguese, Spanish and Swedish.

Global demand for the most efficient, cost-effective, and safe pallet is drawing pallet manufacturers and pallet users to PDS, leading NWPCA to incorporate additional languages and further solidify PDS as the global standard for unit load pallet design.  “Adding new languages to PDS not only supports our rapid global expansion but also provides a significant value to our diverse user-profile in North America,” stated Brent McClendon, NWPCA President and CEO.

“These specific language selections fit seamlessly with our international membership and the international flow of pallets,” added Shane Thompson, NWPCA’s Board Chair. “NWPCA and The Pallet Foundation investments in PDS, totaling nearly $1.5 million over the next two years, further solidify PDS as the international language for pallet design.”

PDS is the leading global pallet design software that designs the optimum pallet by scientifically determining the safe load carrying capacity, performance and material quantity needed. With the release of PDS v.5.4©, Users have the option to enter the design details, and view or print, in any of the languages for pallet specification sheet, 2-D and 3-D pallet drawings, unit load specifications and drawings, pallet analysis results, and pallet production order.

Over 440 major pallet manufacturers in 30 countries around the world use PDS to create 3-D designs that are comprehensive, detailed and efficient. PDS is a proprietary software of the National Wooden Pallet & Container Association. Click for more information on PDS.
