Pallet users, Modern wants your input

Keep an eye out for our pallet survey and help us learn more about how the pallet market is evolving.

By ·

In the coming weeks, you’ll receive an invitation from Modern Materials Handling to participate in a brief survey about how your company is using pallets.

Your answers will be used for a special story on pallets in our September issue, when Modern is bringing back our annual survey of our readers’ pallet usage. For years, the pallet survey was a Modern mainstay, and one of our best read stories. The last time we did it was 2002. The pallet industry has changed dramatically since then, with more used pallets available than ever before as well as more alternatives to wood than ever, including new ways to lease plastic pallets. We want to know how you, our readers, are changing when it comes to how you ship your products.

So, keep your eye open for the survey, and give us a few minutes of your time so we better understand this evolving market.
