2. DURABILITY?
The GreenLight UNIPAL pallet has been used for over a decade throughout Europe and Asia. Greenlight Pallets are used to ship product by truck, rail, cargo ships and aircraft with great success. The GreenLight UNIPAL Pallet carries heavy loads of product for weeks on container ships, throughout the world on aircraft and trucks traveling thousands of miles cross country. The GreenLight UNIPAL pallet is durable and now water resistant.

“We ship product to Australia and they demand corrugated pallets.  We chose the GreenLight UNIPAL Pallet from GreenLight Pallet because it is the only corrugated pallet on the market that we have used, that can withstand the weight and abuse experienced during 30+ days at sea.” – Mike Ashbridge, Wilbur Ellis

 

3. MOISTURE/WATER CONCERNS?
Corrugated paper treated with a water resistant recyclable proprietary product makes GreenLight pallets much more than just water resistant.  Take the time to view water test video on this website that shows the complete drenching of a pallet while carrying over 1800 lbs.  Twenty four hours after the test, the pallet performed perfectly.

4. FREEZER CONCERNS?
Our water resistant proprietary pallet was tested at -10 degrees Fahrenheit for four weeks with a load of 2300lbs without a problem. We also flash froze pallets to -40 degrees Fahrenheit!! Again, the results were without problems.

5. PALLETIZER AND ROLLER CONCERNS?
We have almost completely eliminated this as a concern to our clients by putting a bottom sheet on the pallets.

6. SHIPPING WEIGHT CONCERNS?
Our standard 8 stringer 40X48 pallets will carry and ship 2400lbs+.  We can customize pallets for customers that need to carry heavier loads upon request.

7. STATIC WEIGHT CONCERNS?
Some of our customers stack their pallets 3+ high and have expressed concerns about the bottom pallet holding.  This is an easy concern to overcome.   GreenLight pallets have been static test to 23000 lbs. We have successfully stacked over 7500lbs onto one pallet.  This is static weight which is very different from shipping weight.  With static weight you cannot move the pallet.

8. PRODUCTION CONCERNS?
Some customers have expressed concerns that our production might not be able to keep up with their demand.  A single production line can produce 1.5 million pallets per year.  We will locate manufacturing anywhere to satisfy customer demands.

9. LIMITED STORAGE SPACE?
Customers can purchase GreenLight pallets as components.  Storing components reduces the volume of storage space necessary for our customers.  Assembling the pallets at their location reduces their receiving and storage costs dramatically. Components to assemble 1800 pallets can be stored in the floor space of 24 pallets
