Pine Wood Pallets
Pine timber is commonly used in pallets due to its availability and low cost. It also can be kiln dried and provides a clean product needed for many applications such as pharmaceutical or food related industries. Our standard light wooden pallets our 1165 mm x 1165 mm and primarily recommend using them for lighter shipments. Pine wood pallets are sturdy and can handle large weights, we would usually recommend a hardwood pallet instead, which is more heavy duty and can withstand larger weights. The downside of hardwood pallets is they are substantially heavier than a pine equivalent. A Pine Wood pallet can be up to 10 kg lighter depending on the size and specifications! That is a significant weight difference if you are transporting a large quantity of goods. Therefore, if you are looking to cut costs and cut down on weight thresholds, pine pallets are a great choice.
