Dayton Pallets, Skids, and Crates

Palletize to save time and money

Time is money, and pallets save time. Pallets also reduce damage and lower incidents of loss and theft. Products wrapped to pallets reduce injuries and increase productivity, making more space available to use. Pallets allow for more efficient handling of goods during shipping and storage. By using mechanical processing, like standard forklifts, tasks are accomplished more quickly and with impressive savings. On average, palatalization saves a company 45% in costs and time.

Pallets come in the Grocery Manufacturer Association (GMA) standard size of 48”x 40”, but as Dayton’s number one provider, Dayton Pallets, Skids, and Crates can custom build pallets to a variety of sizes to serve your needs.

Wood pallets are the obvious choice

Wood pallets are economical, customization, environmentally responsible, and for some goods, wood pallets protect the product better than other materials. For instance, grocery products stay fresher because wood pallets allow for superior air circulation to keep items clean. A low-cost wood pallet can last seven years, after which it is recycled, making it the best choice for both business and the environment. For these reasons, we believe wood pallets make an obvious choice for most companies.
