Industrial wooden crates are normally produced using a wooden europallet as the base, onto which two or more side panels of metal mesh or wood are placed.
These are examples of a few types of wooden storage containers.
If the base is a europallet, the container can be used in all the applications already listed for type 1 pallets. Specific handling will be required for other container models.
Care must be taken when choosing a container. It is vital that all of its characteristics, as well as how it will be used, be taken into account.
For example, the containers shown below can cause problems in terms of strength, depending on the load and how they are used.
The lower skids on wooden containers may be weak, since they are generally used for a single delivery with no return.
