Benefits of using pallet crates

Despite recent technological advances in the design and manufacture of storage solutions, pallet crates are still preferred by many for storage and shipping. Pallet crates are made of wood, typically lumber or timber, as well as plywood and engineered wood. Why then are they still widely used, even if there is an option to use aluminium, plastic and other materials?

Here are some of the benefits of using pallet crates:

They are affordable

Choosing wooden crates is more cost-efficient than using plywood boxes because it costs less to produce wooden crates. Also, the materials used in the construction of wooden crates are natural and therefore require less processing, so the process becomes more straightforward. The overall cost to manufacture and sell wooden crates is lower.

They are secure and sturdy

The materials used in the manufacture of our pallet crates are very durable, so they will definitely last longer than other alternatives. They are lightweight and sturdy so they are ideal for heavy and difficult loads. They are typically designed to have slatted sides to allow internal visibility, so you get to see what is inside. They also offer excellent air circulation, so you know that your package will get enough air and sunlight without too much exposure to the elements.

They let you save up on storage space

Another advantage of using wooden crates is their space-saving properties because they are stackable. Their thick walls allow them to be stacked without toppling over or damaging what is inside them. They can withstand the weight of multiple rows and great vertical pressure, especially when the weight of the load is equally distributed.

They are reusable

Wooden crates can also be used over and over again because they are very durable. They are great for long-term use, and are mostly collapsible, for ease of return. Not only will they help you save up on precious floor space when you are storing or shipping packages, they can also be knocked down to save storage space when they are not in use.
