February 16, 2015 (Irvington, NY): PECO Pallet, Inc. announced that it is now providing halfsize (48x20) wood block pallets for its customers in Canada. Pallets can be shipped within 72 hours of order.
The half-size pallet is very popular with leading Canadian retailers because its smaller footprint makes it ideal for in-store merchandise displays and end-cap promotions. Grocery and consumer goods manufacturers can build floor-ready product displays on the sturdy halfsize pallets and then ship them directly to retailers to be displayed in stores.
David Lee, President and Chief Executive Officer of PECO Pallet, stated, “At PECO Pallet, we pride ourselves on listening and responding to the needs of our customers. By introducing the half-size pallet, PECO Pallet now provides a 100% high-quality pallet solution for renters and retailers in Canada.”
PECO’s distinctive red block pallets are used to ship CPG products and fresh produce across North America. PECO Pallet’s authorized distributor network now covers over 90 percent of Canada’s grocery retailers, including Loblaws, Walmart Canada, Sobeys, Metro, and Costco.
Once pallets are empty, they are picked up and returned to a PECO depot, where they are inspected, cleaned, and repaired as needed before being reissued. This sustainable practice helps to reduce waste, cut costs, and improve safety and efficiency throughout the supply chain.
The new PECO half-size pallet measures 48 x 20 inches [1219mm x 508mm] and is a full four-way, multiple-use block pallet built of responsibly forested North American timber. The half-size pallet weighs approximately 28 pounds [12.7 kg] and is rated at a 1,400 lb. [635 kg] capacity.
