Reuse of pallets more necessary than ever

Published at:

Wood is a scarce commodity at the moment. The global demand is enormous, while the supply is lower due to various factors.

As a result of the rise of Covid19 and the resulting lockdown, many people have started doing odd jobs, which, in addition to the improving international construction sector, also increased demand from the private sector. In contrast to the higher demand, the supply of wood declined due to felling restrictions, weather influences and not yet fully grown young plantings. The result of this scarcity is a significant increase in wood prices and a long delivery time due to a limited supply of transport capacity. The causes and background of this shortage predict that it will last for a long time and may never return to the old level.

The prices of wooden pallets are related to those of the wood. Due to the scarcity in the market as well as the high prices of wood and thus those of wooden pallets, the reuse of this load carrier has become much more attractive. In addition, the timely availability of these items is guaranteed: after all, they have already been produced and are moving in the market.

The enormous price increases of wood have been the headlines in recent months: due to the increased demand and scarcity in the market, the price of a new pallet has doubled compared to last year.

Due to high prices for timber and the limited availability of new wooden pallets, but mainly because of the increased focus on sustainability the need to reuse pallets is greater than ever.
