Take a moment and try to imagine what the global supply chain would look like without pallets. Not easy, right? Although they can be easy to take for granted, pallets are vital in the packaging and shipping of goods worldwide. In fact, the EPA estimates that pallets account for over 90 percent of all wood packaging worldwide.
The good news is that as ubiquitous as they are, pallets represent a tremendously efficient and sustainable method for storing and transporting goods. A 2018 study indicates that an astonishing 95% of wood pallets are recycled — far exceeding the numbers for other recyclable materials.
And at Gorgo Pallet, we’re doing our part to keep that number growing.
As the largest pallet recycler in the region, we serve some of the most prominent companies in the country — from Fortune 500 retailers to foodservice distribution hubs. They rely on us not just for our commitment to quality but also our attention to detail.
That’s because, at Gorgo, every pallet is hand sorted and repaired using a strict triple-check system. If we detect any abnormalities — from chemicals to oil marks to foul odors — we won’t reuse those pieces. It’s why our customers have the confidence that every Gorgo pallet — whether new, reconditioned or custom — is made to the same exacting standards.
Reconditioned custom and standard sized pallets
As more and more pallet users become aware of the value and efficiency of pallet recycling, they’re making a move to reconditioned pallets. In addition to maintaining a large inventory of standard 48×40 pallets in all grades – AAA, A, B & C — Gorgo also manufactures custom pallets with new or recycled material to fit your packaging needs.
Broken / excess pallet pickup
Gorgo Groups buys back pallets in a variety of sizes and grades. We can also remove broken, excess, or scrap pallets. Best of all, we pay top dollar in our market. Just give us a call, and we’ll have a trailer at your facility to haul off all your unwanted pallets — making the process quick, easy, and seamless.
Onsite sort and repair
We can also provide the manpower to help you sort and repair pallets to get them back into your system. This saves your company money while providing inventory on the spot. Allowing our experts to focus on your pallet needs frees up your staff to focus on your core business — reducing costs and improving efficiency.
Better for your company — better for the earth
Not only is pallet recycling an efficient, cost-effective way to keep your supply chain moving smoothly, it’s also a critical step in preserving our natural resources. According to experts, the world would save about 43 million trees for every 350 million pallets that are recycled every year. Recycling also helps keep these valuable, reusable materials out of landfills.
