When Standard Sizes Just Don’t Fit:
Custom Plastic Pallets!
By now you know about molded plastic pallets in all their forms (nestable, stackable, and rackable) and functions (export shipping, closed-loop use, racking, etc.).

Plastic pallets generally fall into one of three categories, Nestable, Stackable, or Rackable. Identifying the right pallet for your job is the necessary first step to taking advantage of all plastic pallets have to offer. Do it right and realize a return on your investment; do it wrong and waste time, money, product, and maybe customers. Continue reading Are All Plastic Pallets the Same?
