Why use slip sheets instead of pallets?

DuraSheet 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.

Among the service advantages Dura-Fibre offers: DuraSheets 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 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.
