3 Pallet Purchasing Trends So Far In 2021

Here are 3 industry trends to keep in mind from The Pallet Guys!


It’s not hard to see how the pandemic has affected just about every sector of the economy, and pricing spikes throughout the lumber industry have inadvertently affected the pallet industry over the past year.

The ripple effect throughout the industry has lead many pallet purchasers to shift their unique preferences and priorities in order to be better adjusted for long-term growth going into 2021.

The Pallet Guys have always remained committed to staying on the cutting edge of our industry, so we’ve seen these types of fluctuations over and over again. But we all know how unique the current economic situation is, which is why 2021 just so happens to be an extremely important time to remain adaptive and committed to the latest trends.

So below are 3 pallet purchasing trends that we’ve noticed in recent months, and these tips will undoubtedly go a long way in terms of ensuring your company’s success throughout this spring and into the rest of 2021!

Cleaner, More Sanitary Pallets

It’s completely understandable how a lot of business leaders want to make sure that their products are being shipped in highly sanitary and hygienic environments. This inevitably has developed a lasting trend throughout the pallet industry, which is why pallet sanitizing and heat treated pallets are becoming more important than ever.

Our heat treatments do an incredible job at eliminating any risks of mold, pathogens, pests and all sorts of bacteria. It’s also important to keep in mind that we can treat new and used pallets of all types to fully abide by the latest health standards.

Becoming Carbon Neutral

Another very important trend that supports a lot of commercial marketing efforts is investing in becoming carbon neutral, or at least more eco-conscious. A lot of companies are currently going above and beyond to invest in accurate carbon footprint calculations, and then are doing what’s necessary to reduce this footprint all the way down to zero.

A lot of our clients don’t think about this type of marketing being an option while investing in products like new wooden pallets, but a new Environmental Product Declaration (EPD) has recently come out that has scientifically proven the environmental efficacy of the pallet industry’s best practices towards carbon neutrality and actually improving air quality.

American-Made Pallets

The last industry trend that we’re going to talk about is how a lot of pallet suppliers are supporting the American economy in recent months with more partnerships being made with pallet providers in the USA. American-made goods have done rather well during the pandemic, and this global economic trend looks as though it’s going to continue throughout 2021.

The Pallet Guys are very proud to support many mills and lumber teams from throughout Texas and the American heartland. So you can always be rest assured that you’ll be working with a pallet supplier that also supports many other mid-sized American businesses when you work with our team!
