In recent years, the demand for plastic pallets in the transportation field has increased year by year. Compared with other materials, plastic pallets are light in weight and can reduce the consumption of oil during transportation, thus saving transportation costs for commodity manufacturers. In just a few years, Plastic pallets have replaced wooden pallets as the new darling of the market.
Plastic pallets have essentially the same function as other material pallets, and are horizontal platform devices for loading and stacking, handling, and transporting unit loads of goods and articles. Although it is the most inconspicuous in the logistics industry, but it is a ubiquitous logistics tool, plastic pallets are the fastest growing and most potential market. In recent years, the average annual renewal rate and growth rate of plastic pallets are The number of plastic pallets used in petrochemical, tobacco, food, pharmaceutical and transportation industries has grown exponentially.
The rapid development of plastic pallets is mainly due to several factors:
First of all, the plastic tray itself has superior performance. The plastic tray can be used repeatedly, resistant to water and light, and saves freight, which is beneficial to open-air operation and storage without occupying a turnover warehouse. Compared with wooden pallets, the hardness and turnover rate are increased by 3-5 times, which is in line with the requirements of saving wood resources.
Second, in recent years, the state has increased the control of deforestation, which has led to a significant increase in the cost of wood. In addition, the demand for wooden pallets in Europe and the United States has become more and more demanding, stimulating the use of plastic pallets.
Third, China's plastic pallet mold manufacturing has made great progress. From the market situation, plastic mold production enterprises should focus on large-scale, fine, complex, long-life molds with high skill content, and vigorously explore the international market and develop export molds.
Fourth, with the improvement of the performance of plastic pallets in China and the decline in raw material prices, the cost of plastic pallets is no longer a bottleneck restricting the use of enterprises. In order to adapt to the market demand, our company has produced high-quality plastic pallets that meet the needs of the Chinese market after years of research and development.
Fifth, the processing of plastic pallet equipment is highly automated and the output is large. At present, the production of plastic pallets generally uses three methods: first, injection molding, high cost; second, combined type, extrusion method, low cost but poor strength; third, shaped hollow blow molding, simple and economical raw material.
