Title: Pallet Users State Their Preferences For Used Pallets - Companion Stringers Cited as Biggest

Author: Bush, Robert J.; Roudik, Ronen; Araman, Philip A.

Date: 1995

Source: Pallet Talk, NWPCA Newsletter. 95(6): 1, 4.

Publication Series: Miscellaneous Publication

Description: A study recently completed by VA Tech in Blacksburg, VA, found that half companion stringers have the greatest negative impact on purchasers of used pallets, followed by split deckboards, protruding nails, and full companion stringers. Repairs using metal plates had relatively little affect on the value of the pallet. The study provides new information concerning the needs of repaired pallet users in the grocery distribution industry. This research looked at how selected characteristics of repaired pallets affect a buyerĂ¢s willingness to purchase the pallet. The results will help pallet recyclers who serve this industry segment to maximize the value of the products they offer profit in an increasingly competitive market.
