What are the different types of plastic box pallets?
Plastic pallet boxes from Palletower come in several types and two sizes. Our main products conform to the standard UK pallet size, 1200 x 1000mm, but we also provide European size 1200 x 800mm boxes.
- Used and once-used pallet boxes
We offer a wide range of used and once-used plastic box pallets. The once-used boxes have been exclusively employed for the importation of citrus fruits. Both options are a cost-efficient alternative to buying new products, and whilst they may offer the same strength and build quality, they can sometimes be less pleasing on the eye.
- Wheeled pallet boxes
When a site is too small to allow forklift access, or there simply isn’t a vehicle available, wheeled boxes are a welcome and practical alternative. Wheels allow the fully laden containers to be pushed and pulled with ease and manoeuvred without damaging the floor.
- Vented pallet boxes
Boxes with vented sides and a base are ideal for carrying fresh vegetables, fruit, and plants. The vents allow water to run through the box and allows air to flow around the contents, keeping them in prime condition during storage and transportation.
- Collapsible pallet boxes
Pallet boxes are widely used because they are light and robust, making them perfect for transporting goods over long distances. Collapsible boxes have an additional benefit for return logistics. When folded, the unit height is just 345mm. That’s an excellent return ratio of 3:1, providing significant transport savings.
- Lidded pallet boxes
All UK size (1200 x 1000mm) plastic box pallets from Palletower (including some of our European size plastic box pallets) have an optional drop-on plastic lid. This is also made from HDPE to ensure that the box remains water and weather resistant when fitted. The lids are carefully designed and moulded for a snug fit, providing optimum protection for the contents without compromising stackability.
What can plastic box pallets be used for?
Our plastic box pallets have a recommended weight capacity of 500kg per box when stacked five high. Solid sided boxes are the ideal storage solution for a variety of industrial applications, including automotive components, horticulture, foods, and clothing, as well as waste cardboard, paper, and metal for recycling.
The vented boxes are popular for storing and transporting fresh foods.
Collapsible box pallets are the wise choice for industries that need to control the cost of return logistics. They are also highly suitable for seasonal trade businesses, occupying minimal storage space when not in use.
