Source: Pallet Enterprise. 17(8): 34, 36-38.

Description: In 1994, the authors reported in the Pallet Enterprise on their study of new and recovered wood use for pallets and containers. In this article they report on the results of a new survey in 1996 of new wood use by the pallet and container industry, comparing the latest results to previous studies. Their research is based on a study of 2,600 wooden pallet and container manufacturers in the United States who were surveyed about their 1995 production. Part two of their report will focus on recycled pallets and will appear in October's Pallet Enterprise.
