Between 90%-95% of the total volume of pallets are wooden pallets. In addition to robustness and safety, one of the main advantages of this type of pallet is durability, since they can be easily repaired and partially replaced if necessary. The average life of a reusable wooden pallet is between 8 and 10 years, although this will obviously depend on the type of use and palletizing.
Wooden pallets, when they are no longer suitable for storage and transport, can be recycled for decorative use in the home or also to obtain chips, shavings or sawdust. In addition, it should not be overlooked that its manufacturing process is more environmentally friendly than other options.
