The German pallet market:
Standard pallet demand above the usual seasonal level

30 Mar 2020 − 

According to information from German manufacturers of standard pallets, a very sharp rise in demand has occurred in the last few weeks.

Both the number of enquiries and the volumes of pallets involved have last been considerably higher than the otherwise usual level for this time of year. The causes of this development are lower imports of chemical and euro-pallets from the eastern European region as well as security purchases by customers fearing a squeeze in the availability of standard pallets if the corona crisis gets worse.
