Author: Bush, Robert J.; Araman, Philip A.
Source: Hardwood Market Report. LXXVI(11): 11-14.
Description: In the first article of this three-part series we described trends in the use of new wood materials for pallets and containers. The second article described changes in pallet recovery and recycling. In this third article, we describe alternative (i.e., other than solid wood) materials used to manufacture pallets as well as changes in the structure of the industry. Finally, we provide our predictions of how changes and trends will combine to impact the use of hardwoods.
