THE ONLY PALLETS FOR THE PLANET!

 

THE CORRECT WAY OF CALCULATING THE COSTS OF PALLETS

There are a number of factors to take into account in deciding what type of pallets to purchase. The first would obviously be whether the pallets can do the job that they are required to do. The next most important factor is the price – not the initial cost of the pallets but more importantly what the cost of the pallets will be over the effective life of the pallets.  Our pallets last longer and are the only repairable plastic pallets available which makes them extremely cost effective.

Let us explain the method of calculating the cost effectiveness of our pallets. Let's say the pallet costs R350 to purchase and the pallet lasts for five years, then the pallet has cost approximately 19c per day. That makes for very cost effective material handling.   

In view of the fact that our pallets are one of the only repairable plastic pallets available, a realistic repair cost can be calculated at 5% of the value of the pallet per year (R 17,50 per year). This extends the life of the pallets drastically and reduces your material handling costs even more. 

Many companies do not take note of their actual pallet costs and may be well advised to apply the above calculation in their organisation.

 

THE BENEFITS OF PURCHASING VS. RENTING PALLETS

Polyplank pallets are an asset whilst rental costs increase annually.
