Impact of Timber Price Rise on Wooden Pallet and Pressed Wood Pallet

Wooden pallet and pressed wood pallet are both the option for logistics and warehouse industry. But the price of timber rises continuously, the impact on wooden pallet is very important.

Pallet timber increased for the fifth consecutive month; while other timber/wood categories are also showing ongoing monthly increases. The report shows that the prices of both new and used pallets have now increased.

The recently published Quarter 4 Packaging and Pallet Timber Index confirms the movements in price of both UK grown and Baltic timber. UK grown has risen for the third consecutive quarter and Baltic and for the second consecutive quarter (Q3 down 8 per cent; Q4 down 3 per cent).

The general secretary of the Timber Packaging and Pallet Confederation (TIMCON), said: “The cost of imported raw materials for pallets and packaging is rising. As there is no nail manufacturing in the UK, members source these products from Europe. And following the Brexit vote the fall in the value of the pound has had an impact. There has been similar inflation on imported timber – notably in quarter 3 – while the price of UK-grown timber is also rising in line with the market for timber for competing products.

“As nails and timber account for at least 70 percent of the cost of manufacturing timber pallets. And these rises are unavoidably going to have to be passed on to the price of the finished products. However, we are confident that pallet users will work together with our members to absorb these increases.”

Solution to timbers’ price raising that pressed wood pallet

Wood remains by far the most economic material for pallets and transportation packaging. But the compressed wood pallet is the good alternative to wooden pallet. At the same time, pressed wood pallets are the most reuseable, repairable, recyclable and all round most environmentally sustainable option. In addition, PalletMach had upgraded pressed wood pallet machine. Then, pressed wood pallet machine can produce high quality pressed wood pallet. But the raw materials are small diameter timber, branches and wood processing residues. It not only reduces the dwindling of forest, but also fully takes advantage of wood waste.

Pressed wood pallet is the plant fiber molded industrial plane pallet. Normally wood chips and plant straws are the raw materials. Besides, PalletMach tested different materials and expanded range to wood waste board, sawdust and shavings, waste pallets. Even, the raw materials are bagasse, wheat straw and cotton straw, and waste furniture, and so on.

PalletMach as a manufacturer, but we not only want to manufacture pressed wood pallet machines. But also we want to be better in wood working industry and pallet machine industry. We persevere in better service, better quality, to make our partners to be ideal pressed wood pallet suppliers in their country to occupy more markets.

We aim high.

We want to serve our clients better, to be an expert in solutions for different pallet plant.
