Plastic Pallets are typically used in transporting fresh, frozen foods and pharmaceutical or any other products with strict hygienic requirements. These are easy to clean, wash or sterilize. Plastic pallets are about 3 times more expensive than wooden ones, so pricey plastic pallets would unlikely be an economical business choice for you. They can’t be easily repaired, they must be melted down to recycled. However they have a significantly longer lifespan than wooden pallet. The main benefit of plastic pallets is that they can be reused for a long time without breakage.
