The versatile new pallet offers the ultimate space-saving and cost-cutting solution for goods handling and transportation. A standard truck can hold up to 33 stacks of the APB1208 LSNR pallets piled 35 high – a total of 1,155 pallets – ensuring minimal wastage space in storage and transit. As the APB1208 LSNR pallets nest securely when not in use, this can significantly reduce costs on return journeys.
Moulded in one piece, the APB1208 LSNR has three long runners along the base, which allow the pallets to be racked up to a capacity of 400kg per pallet. When static, the pallet bears a maximum load of 1,200kg.
Where most traditional nestable pallets have nine feet and are not suitable for roller conveyor systems, the APB1208 LSNR proves the exception. The pallet’s unique three-runner design allows the pallet to run off most conveyor and roller systems. When placed in stackable mode, the pallet also feeds easily through automated pallet dispensers.
The APB1208 LSNR measures 1,200mm (L) x 800mm (D) x 140mm (H) and weighs 7.8kg. The pallet is available in recycled or virgin materials and is fully recyclable. Optional features include extra 7mm rims for additional stability and anti-slip plugs.
Supermarkets can’t get enough of this Nestable
Also new and exclusive to Goplasticpallets.com in the UK is the APB6080 LSO nestable pallet, which has taken supermarkets by storm in Europe.
Jim Hardisty, Managing Director of Goplasticpallets.com, said: “The reason this nestable pallet is so widely used in Europe is because it offers the perfect combination of strength and weight and nests up to 50 pallets high, saving space in transit. Its open structure also means it’s easy to clean but doesn’t absorb liquids, which makes it ideal for use in the food supply chain.”
The half-Euro-sized APB6080 LSO nestable pallet measures 800mm (L) x 600mm (D) x 145mm (H) and weighs in at 3.4kg. Similar to the nestable, stackable, rackable pallet, the APB6080 LSO is set on three runners rather than feet so it can be used with Euro hand pallet trucks either way round.
Lightweight Nestables for export
Not only are nestable plastic pallets proving popular in the food industry, with the economy on the rise, Goplasticpallets.com has reported increased demand for nestables for export.
Lightweight nestable pallets are ideal for export use. They avoid ISPM15 Wood Packaging Regulations, which seriously restrict the import of wooden pallets in many countries worldwide; are low-cost; suitable for use in many low weight applications, and in many cases can be reused, offering a great return on investment.
The ultimate cost-effective solution for exports is Goplasticpallets.com’s one-trip nestable pallet. Available in two different sizes, 1140mm (L) x 1140mm (D) and 1200mm (L) x 1200mm (D), these one-trip nestable pallets are manufactured in lower-grade recycled material, which has enabled the company to price them competitively.
One-trip nestable pallets are designed for limited trips. As they are lightweight, they offer easy handling and also guarantee reduced airfreight charges. The one-trip APB1140L pallet is particularly popular with exporters for loading goods into shipping containers, since the pallet’s dimensions – 1140mm x 1140mm – allow for two pallets to be placed side-by-side.

Nestable pallets are just one of the styles in Goplasticpallets.com’s extensive range of plastic pallets.
