Quality pallets for your automated systems

For many companies that use automated systems in their supply chain, there’s always one requirement: to get the best possible pallet quality.

Indeed, these handling and production systems require specific pallets adapted to the required dimensions, quality and moisture content.

How do you make sure you have the right pallets for your supply chain?

Not all pallets are created equal, especially when it comes to selecting a pallet for automated handling and production systems. Find out what the most important points to consider are to make the right choice.

Pallet wood composition

Above all, avoid pallets made from composite wood: it can swell in contact with water or twist on impact leading to supply chain automation system stoppages.

The standards the pallets meet

Each automated system has its own acceptable pallet standards: size and weight being the most obvious criteria. Some distributors reject pallets that fail to meet their automated systems’ standards.

Care for general pallet condition

For your automated systems to run properly, every pallet must be in perfect condition. Choose a supplier that guarantees delivered resource quality by inspecting it beforehand.

Logistics operator training

Choose a supplier whose teams are trained to treat pallets as valuable assets and not disposable resources. You’ll reduce the risk of damage to the pallets on delivery and thereby reduce your automated system rejection rates.
