Sales of Palletowers plastic pallet collar have risen sharply



Logistics equipment provider reveals fastest selling product

Logistics equipment provider, Palletower, has seen a 25% year-on-year increase in the use of its plastic pallet collar is due to the rapidly growing demand for same day and next day delivery in the e-commerce industry.

Since its launch in 2017, the logistics equipment provider has seen the demand for plastic pallet collars soar, with one parcel delivery company ordering 32,000 alone in 2018.

The UK was the global leader in retail e-commerce sales in 2018 with online purchases accounting for 18% of total retail sales. As a result of this increased demand from consumers there is a growing need for retailers to transport goods efficiently without incurring additional costs.

Matthew Palmer, Palletower Managing Director, said: “The sharp increase in online sales demonstrates the pressure retailers and warehouses are under to continually improve operations and the overall effectiveness of the supply chain. We firmly believe that plastic pallet collars have contributed to revolutionising how businesses transport goods. The success of the product has surpassed our expectations and it has gone on to become a key feature of logistics operations across the globe.”

Pallet collars are a cost-effective solution that help businesses reduce transportation costs and maximise the amount of goods that can be delivered at any one time. Folding at a ratio of 8:1 compared to traditional pallets, it also means saving valuable warehouse space.

Matthew continued: “E-commerce is a rapidly growing industry and as a result of this we’ve experienced a sharp increase in enquiries and sales of pallet collars. We work with a number of retailers who are seeing a growing need to streamline their supply chain to cope with consumer demand.”
