At present, the annual consumption of plastic trays in the United States is 1.1 billion. In the next few years, the use of plastic pallets in the United States will increase at a rate of 2.4%. It is estimated that in 2017, the country’s consumption of plastic pallets will reach 2.6 billion.
The reason why plastic trays replaced wood pallets in a short period of several years became the new darling of the market because of its excellent impact resistance, chemical resistance, and flame retardancy.
In recent years, the demand for plastic pallets in the transportation sector has increased year by year. According to a local plastic tray manufacturer in the US, compared with other materials, plastic trays are lightweight and can reduce oil consumption during transportation, thereby saving transportation costs for commodity manufacturers.
In order to better meet the market demand, a plastic container manufacturer named CABKA in the United States has introduced a new plastic tray model CPP200. The tray is 32 inches long, 24 inches wide, 5.1 inches high and weighs just 8.5 pounds. According to CABKA, this new type of tray is made of renewable PE material and has a great improvement in appearance design and safety performance. It will be more suitable for shipping containers.
