Upalet, The cardboard Pallet
Úpalet®, the cardboard pallet, is an innovative, sustainable and lightweight product, which offers the same robustness of a traditional wooden pallet.
The lightest cardboard pallet.
One of Úpalet’s® most notable characteristics is its weight. Standard sizes from 2.2 lb. (1 kg) to 18 lb. (8 kg), compared with traditional US wood pallets which range between 33 lb. (15 kg) and 48 lb. (22 kg).
It is much lighter than its wood or plastic equivalents on the market, thus reducing costs, fossil fuel consumption and CO2 emissions associated with the transport of goods, even allowing their transport by air.
Because of its interlaced stacking shape, the Úpalet® cardboard pallet can be stored much more compactly, reducing space and optimising transport and storage.
Úpalet® is accessible from all 4 sides, making it easy to handle throughout the supply chain.
Ecological. Recyclable. Sustainable.
The cardboard pallet is 100% recyclable, so its disposal at the end of its useful life does not entail a cost for the owner, but has a residual value that allows the owner to recover part of its investment.
Developed with environmentally friendly materials. It also reduces the CO2 footprint.
Made from 100% recycled and sustainable materials. At the end of its life cycle, it can be recycled and recover up to 10% of its cost.
No phytosanitary treatment
With no additional requirement for export/import documents for Phytosanitary Measures ISPM 15, custom clearance will speed up.
No splinters, nails or staples, coupled with its light weight, means that the risk for occupational accidents is greatly minimized. Perfect choice for pharma and food shipments/storage. Works well in cold storage.
It does not have the chemical treatments that are applied on other pallets to avoid the nesting of fungi and parasites, as it is not necessary. This reduces the risk of contamination, protecting human health and the product being transported.
Extraordinary impact resistance.
The exclusive, patented mounting system allows for extraordinary forklift resistance compared to other cardboard pallet models.
The concentric tubes that make up the pallet columns are inserted into the upper and lower plates, so that the column is firmly anchored to the pallet platform.
Strong & Innovative.
