Why use paperboard sheets with pallets?

In addition to replacing pallets, Dura-Fibre’s paperboard sheets can also be used in conjunction with pallets. Pallet deformities can pose risks for damage to the products placed on them. Additionally, stacking for shipping, handling and storage can lead to damaged products. The following paperboard sheets are made to protect your product from top to bottom:

  • Pallet sheets – Use pallet sheets between the pallet and your product, eliminating the risks that come with being in direct contact with pallets.
  • Tier sheets – Place tier sheets between product layers to protect stacked items during transport.
  • Top sheets – Add to top of the product stacks to create a durable layer of protection for your products during storage and shipping.

Why use slip sheets instead of pallets?

Paperboard slip sheets can be manufactured to meet your exacting needs, providing a variety of cost- and space-saving solutions. Because slip sheets are smaller and lighter than pallets, they reduce freight, warehousing and shipping costs. And since slip sheet pallets are the exact length and width you require, they reduce damaged products from too-small pallets and wasted materials and space from too-large pallets.

The Unmatched Advantage of Dura-Fibre Paperboard Sheets

Among the service advantages Dura-Fibre offers: Slip sheets run weekly, allowing us to offer guaranteed turnaround times, stock major repeat items and develop customer-specific service programs. We have storage space if you don’t, and we can help you react to unexpected demand or shipping needs.

Finally, our product can be used with automated equipment and processes such as insert stations, leading to additional business advantages.
