The German pallet market:
Special effects fading away again

14 May 2020 − 

The sharp increase that occurred in demand for standard pallets from the middle to the end of March 2020 tailed off again during the course of April.

According to information from manufacturers and the trade, the level of demand in this product segment is meanwhile back at a usual level for the time of year and, in some cases, demand is already reported to be rather slack. The short-time working still in place in various sectors of industry and the lower industrial output is also going to entail a correspondingly lower requirement of load carriers in the weeks ahead. In spite of the flattening in demand, prices were still able to be held largely steady until the end of April.
