In areas such as the food and beverage industry and the pharmaceutical industry, finding ways to improve supply chain sanitation is paramount. As our understanding of the dangers of contamination along the supply chain has grown, so have consumer and industry supply chain hygiene standards.
Finding ways to transport food, medicine and other sensitive goods safely to their location is a challenge, and one that it is important to meet, both for the reputation of industry companies and the health of their customers.
One of the most significant advances in supply chain sanitation in recent years is the development of effective hygienic plastic pallets. These types of pallets are extremely conducive to supply chain sanitation, especially in sectors related to food and beverage.
Hygienic Plastic Pallets and Their Role in Supply Chain Sanitation
Although plastic pallets have only been in existence for a few decades, they are quickly supplanting wood pallets as a hygienic, efficient option for transporting goods that are at risk of contamination, first in the pharmaceutical space and quickly spreading to the food and beverage space.
Why are hygienic plastic pallets becoming so popular? A great many reasons. One is that they can be molded to precise dimensions so you will always know exactly how many pallets of material you can fit on the truck or in the warehouse every single time. It is much easier to find dimensional variance among wood pallets.
In addition, hygienic plastic pallets meet the requirements of the Food Safety Modernization Act (FSMA), making them officially safe for food and beverage use. They are also very easy to clean, do not retain moisture and can stand up to temperature extremes on both sides. On top of this, the Food and Drug Administration agrees that the 100 percent virgin resin content of these pallets is safe for direct food contact.
