ENVIRONMENTAL IMPACT OF PALLETS

BLOCKPal pallets are the most environmentally sustainable pallet choice, reducing the environmental impact of supply chain operations through lighter, more durable construction, efficient design, and embedded tracking technology.

17% more pallets per backhaul load = fewer truckloads*

Up to 26% lighter means less fuel consumption*

150+ lifetime uses means 80% fewer pallets needed*

Embedded tracking means just 0.3% asset loss and waste*

*RM2 BLOCKPal advantages compared to wooden block pallets as determined by a comparative LCA conducted by Pure Strategies according to ISO 14040/14044 standards.

Greater Durability Enables a Circular, Pooled Model

BLOCKPal pallets have a lifetime of 150+ uses, so only 20% as many pallets are needed for the same number of pallet trips vs. wood pallets.

Lighter Weight Reduces Fuel Consumption

21% reduction in greenhouse gas emission during pallet use, driven mainly by BLOCKPal’s 26% lower weight (55 lbs vs 75 lbs).

Real-time Asset Tracking Lowers Loss and Waste

Embedded ELIoT™ device tracks each pallet’s location in real time, all but eliminating pallet loss and waste.

No Hazardous Chemicals

The composite material from which the BLOCKPal is constructed does not need treatment with harmful chemical agents for infestation control or fire resistance which affect both use and disposal.

RESULTS: COMPARATIVE LIFE CYCLE ASSESSMENT OF WOOD AND COMPOSITE PALLETS
