We are all aware of the issues with “Düsseldorf wooden pallets“: they are too unclean, too bent, and too costly when all logistical charges are included.
Düsseldorfer Wooden Pallet
The Düsseldorf plastic pallet, created by WALTHER, is a clever and reliable replacement for the wooden Düsseldorf pallet. It established new transportation and intralogistics norms and was made for a significant discount retailer. The load carrier has a good life cycle evaluation, is ideal for double-deck transport, and is simple to repair owing to exchangeable runners. Real-time location information about the pallet is transmitted via the inbuilt RFID chip.
With 120 million pooled pallets and containers in use throughout Europe, we manage the largest equipment pool of its type as an internationally recognized pallet provider (seven times more than our nearest competitor). Our European network has 315,000 delivery points at shops, manufacturers, e-commerce companies, food service providers, logistics partners, and 240 service centres spread throughout 35 countries. We can ensure you receive the platforms you need in the correct amounts, in the suitable locations, and at the appropriate times, regardless of how the demand for your product fluctuates.
800 x 1200 mm in size
The most well-known brands in the world select us as their pallet provider for more effective, environmentally friendly, and secure shipping of their completed goods on wooden pallets worldwide. The reusable wooden pallets may be used for export and are made per national and international regulations (ISPM 15). Do you seek out Euro pallets constructed of plastic? They are perfect for businesses with strict rules and high hygiene standards, such as chemicals and pharmaceutical manufacturers. Both with and without top deck lips are available.
The 800mm by 1200mm EURO pallet has emerged as a dependable and preferred workhorse for European enterprises. If adequately constructed and maintained, it is easily recyclable and reusable in pallet pools. The European Pallet Association’s (EPAL) half pallet, however, is a smaller pallet size that is currently gaining popularity.
efficient and practical
Major enterprises have traditionally preferred the tremendous standard pallet, even if merely for its effectiveness in carrying more items in fewer trips. However, there are occasionally situations where a smaller version is preferred. Both large and small firms must send tiny amounts of specific commodities or simply a single little product. If oversized pallets are only utilized to half or even a quarter of their potential, they are not cost-effective.
Problems with transportation modes have also arisen. Sometimes a trailer or truck has extra space, but it isn’t big enough for a full-size pallet. A smaller size would be good in this situation.
POS (Point-of-Sale) Displays
Smaller-sized pallets in point-of-purchase (POP) displays are another, even more practical use. Turning around a tiny pallet to exhibit perfumes or pastries is a far better solution than carting items across the store floor for half a day for any merchant, from a supermarket to an expensive boutique.
Measurements and Quality Control
The EPAL half pallet is 800 x 600 mm in size. Compared to the contemporary European “Dusseldorfer” type, which is commonly used, this pallet is better constructed and of superior quality. The new EPAL half pallet has been completely quality-controlled. It is approved by EPAL, but the “Dusseldorfer” model has not undergone independent quality assurance.
This four-way half pallet was explicitly designed for the food and beverage industry, where they are becoming more and more popular. Additionally, there are expanding applications in other areas of the retail sector, including the thriving discount shop industry.
The flexibility to reach the pallet from all sides allows items to be moved across various sales locations, making it one of the most crucial aspects. Using forklift trucks to move things around is made more straightforward. The load-bearing capacity of the half pallet is still proportionate to that of the full-size pallet. Its maximum loading capacity is 500 kg instead of the full-size version’s 1,000 kg.
Stability and Weight
Lower proportional weight than the 25kg full pallet is the half pallet’s less than 10kg weight. It contains six-stringer and lower edge boards in addition to seven boards on its top edge. These boards are all 21 mm broad. Six steel brackets with a 3mm angle add additional stability.
Dimensions of Düsseldorf plastic pallet
The Düsseldorf plastic pallet has a low empty weight of 6.5 kg and can carry static loads up to 1,000 kg and dynamic loads up to 500 kg. The runners’ unique floor design enables double-deck carrying, such as folding fruit and vegetable cartons. The load carrier offers simple transportation at any point in the material flow chain since it is compatible with all conventional conveyor systems. Exchangeable runners make repairs simple since a replacement assures the load carrier will last a long time, even if misused. The Düsseldorf dimensions (800 × 600 mm) of the affordable and green replacement for wooden pallets enable it to be totally recycled.
