Ideas for wooden pallets

My top 10 unique & crazy uses for wooden pallets

Researching for this article, I must confess, the versatility of pallets amazed me!

I always thought wooden structures for storing products effectively in a warehouse facility was a rather dull commodity to write an article on!  However, just recently having seen some of the amazing pictures floating around on Google+ and  Twitter  , it got me thinking for the topic of my next article.   If nothing else, perhaps my post will aide your sleeping pattern!

History of the pallet

Did you know that the wooden pallet was first introduced in the early 1920s and significantly reduced the time it took to unload 13,000 cases of canned goods from 3 days to just 4 hours.  The pallet, together with the forklift, play an important role in the handling of modern materials and the significance of using these two items in your warehouse will be strappingly(!!) rewarding for your company.   Consequently, companies now design their warehouses around the accommodation of the larger pallets as these play a key role in reducing the cost of labour.
