For heavier goods stored in containers made of glass, shipping pallets need to be both sturdy and lightweight. Glass pallets have a specific construction so that they can easily transport and store heavy loads.
Oak Creek Wood Products: Quality Glass Pallets
Because products stored in glass jars and metal cans are much heavier than other goods, the wood pallets used to transport and warehouse these goods need to be very sturdy and durable. Glass pallets are constructed with more parts that are thicker to better distribute weight, and they are often two-way pallets. Though plastic pallets have been in use for glass and cans, businesses are switching back to wood pallets for their repairability, durability, and lower cost.
