If you thought the lightweight aluminum air cargo pallets were valuable, you are going to be blown away by the advantages of the newest invention in the air cargo industry – the Air Pallet. AIRDEX International is one of the companies that manufacture these unbelievable pallets and they are committed to minimizing their carbon footprint while providing companies with the lightest air cargo pallet on the market. Weighing in at an average of 7lbs, this pallet is approximately 5lbs lighter than its competition. Airlines charge companies by the pound when shipping goods, so it makes no sense to use a heavy pallet to place your shipments on. Why pay the extra cash to use your own pallet? This air cargo pallet is designed to perfectly fit on airfreight like a cookie sheet and pays for itself in a single use.
What composition allows these advanced pallets to be so light and efficient? To start, the outer skin is made from EPA/FDA/Medical certifiable high-impact polystyrene. This material is a tough, sanitary, non-porous and non-absorbent completely washable surface free of nesting places for insects, rodents, disease, mold, and mildew. Its inner core is produced from lightweight expanded polystyrene, which is a natural thermal insulator. It is extraordinarily light and shock absorbent, eliminating the need for bottom thermal wraps and fumigation.
Even though this air cargo pallet is extremely light, it can support the same heavy and demanding loads of your typical aluminum pallet. They are strong and rackable, making these pallets the ideal shipping solution for companies looking to save money and increase profits. So what happens if the Air Pallet is damaged? If only slightly damaged, these air cargo pallets only require a simple, quick, and low-cost patching repair. If abused beyond repair they are sent to grinders to become raw materials for new plastic products.
Always keeping the environment in mind, almost all Air Pallets are collected after their first use as part of a worldwide recycling program. They are extremely easy to use, clean, and repair. Ideal for fragile or temperature-sensitive products, these air cargo pallets will lighten your financial load while decreasing your company’s overall carbon footprint. That sounds like a win-win to me!
