According to the European Federation of Wooden Pallet and Packaging Manufacturers (FEFPEB) there are more than three billion wood pallets in circulation within the European Union, 1 billion units of lightweight packaging and several billion units of industrial wood packaging every year – and many more being used internationally. Alongside boxes, crates and other packaging, these are essential to the smooth movement of goods around the world. It is truly packaging from nature.
There are more than 1.8 billion pallets in service in the United States each day. Ninety-three percent of these pallets are made from wood. This figure does not include the many more millions of pallets used to ship goods internationally. More than $400 billion worth of American trade is exported annually on wood pallets and containers worldwide.
