Modesto, CA — United Pallet Services, Inc. debuted the SP40S at MODEX, the newest member of the pointGUARD North America family. It is designed to fit the standard 48”x40” US shipping pallet. It’s lighter and about 1/3 the cost of its bigger brother, the LX40S which is designed for captive and reusable pallets. The shipping protector’s main purpose is to protect the product by keeping the top lead board defended from strapping or forklift damage. Due to its low price point, it’s intended for one time use. Wooden pallets, the staple of the industry for decades are considered by many to be sustainable, economical, and easy to source. The downside however, is they are prone to considerable damage from forklifts. Once a pallet is damaged it can create product damage during transit as well. The pointGUARD offers a more economical solution than all plastic pallets provide. The pointGUARD plastic pallet protector utilizes the greatest benefits of both, the durability of plastic but with a price point more towards the cost of a wood pallet.
