Lifdek™ license corrugated box manufacturers around the world with the most cost-efficient corrugated pallet system to allow both them and their customers to cost-effectively ship light weight goods such as cardboard boxes, auto and electronic parts, toilet paper, powdered goods, lightbulbs, injection-moulded parts, fruit and vegetables and hundreds of other goods that don’t need to be shipped on expensive plastic or heavy timber pallets.
Lifdek™ is the perfect shipping platform for one-way and wood-free airfreight shipments. Don’t pay for heavy timber pallets to be airfreighted ever again.
Warehouse personnel assemble Lifdek pallets in <60 seconds on small table jigs with no tools, glue or fasteners, saving countless forklift journeys to the pallet yard.
Lifdek works with hundreds of box manufacturers around the world to deliver multiple pallet solutions optimized for sustainable brands. Our library of over 100 pallet designs is growing all the time.
Put us to the challenge today to learn if we have a pallet solution for your goods.
Air Freight – highest potential cost savings from reduced weight and fuel costs
Odd Size Pallets – cost savings compared to non-commodity wood pallets
International Shipping – cost savings because of ISPM-15 exemption
Light Weight <500 kg (1100 lbs)
More Challenging – LIFDEK Pallet Applications:
Local Domestic Shipping – low cost wood pallets / pools
Non-Uniform or Flexible Loads – requires pallet design considerations
Wet Environment / Outdoor Use – requires water resistant treatment of corrugated
Less Than Truckload (LTL) – Abusive with a large number of forklift handling
Heavy Weight > 500 kg (1100 lbs)
Lifdek is commonly used to ship these products:
Retail Goods, Clothing, Furniture, Electronics, Plastic Parts, Automotive Parts, Textiles, Perishable Foods, Powdered Foods
Circular Approach to Shipping Platform Materials – Ship, recycle, reuse
100% Readily Recyclable Construction – Corrugated fiberboard is the most recycled material on earth
100% Sustainable Sourced Materials – No petroleum-based adhesives
Reduced Shipping Energy Use – Product-tailored pallet design, 80% reduction in pallet weight
No Heat/Fumigation Chemical Treatment – Corrugated fiberboard is ISPM-15 exempt, insect/disease free
Climate positive – Reduction in CO2 emissions through transport
Reduced Pallet Sourcing Energy Use – Pallet blanks shipped flat, 80% reduction in pallet deliveries
Reduced Pallet Warehouse Space – Pallets stored flat, 80% reduction in pallet warehouse space
Pallets Produced When Needed – Pallets easily assembled in on 30-45 seconds, before use.
Forklifts pick up just 18 wood pallets compared to 180 unassembled Lifdek pallets, saving approximately 90% on incoming forklift labor, maintenance and fuel for incoming pallet freight.
Heavy wood block pallets can add nearly a ton of dead pallet weight, which reduces the amount of product loaded on
the trailer before reaching maximum DOT weight limits. Lifdek pallets weight just 4 kg (9 lbs), reducing dead pallet weight and increasing product shipped each trailer load.
Product Damage Savings
Manufacturers shipping fragile products realize a reduction in product damages caused by broken wood slats, protruding nails, and double stacking heavy pallets. Lifdek pallets are perfect every time, light weight, and absorb vibration and shock offering a buffer between the road and your products.
Logistics and Handling Saving
In many cases, product manufacturers can bypass the retail distribution centers and ship directly to the retail store
location where Lifdek pallets are recycled along with other corrugated boxes, preventing pallet accumulation.
Employees at retail locations can hand carry Lifdek pallets to the recycling bin rather than use pallet jacks or forklifts to store, stage and load heavy wood pallets.
Warehouse and Dock Space Savings
Lifdek pallets are received and stored KDF (Knock Down Flat) occupying a fraction of the space conventional wood pallets require. This allows additional warehouse and dock space to be used for receiving and storing products.
Air Freight Savings
Light weight Lifdek pallets save approximately $60 USD over conventional wood pallets when shipped Air Freight and billed at $1.00 USD per kg. Air freight savings exceed $1,000,000 USD converting just 17,000 pallets from wood to Lifdek.
Lifdek pallets are captured and re-pulped by the corrugated recycling infrastructure already in place for corrugated boxes, rarely entering a landfill. Hardwood pallets are one of the biggest solid waste contributors to landfills.
The amount of fuel used to ship and retrieve empty pallets to and from customers is reduced substantially because Lifdek pallets ship KDF, allowing more than four times the quantity of wood pallets per trailer load. Each gallon of diesel fuel saved would decrease carbon emissions by 10 kg (22 lbs).
Cross Contamination Elimination
Corrugated board is made using high temperatures and is approved for food and pharmaceutical applications because of its sterile nature. Lifdek pallets ship one way, preventing exposure to contaminants, harmful chemicals, and bacteria.
Slip Sheet Elimination
Slip sheet purchases add additional costs as a necessary barrier to each wood pallet, but Lifdek pallets eliminate them due to the smooth, clean top surface.
Treated Pallet Elimination
Some countries have stopped receiving wood pallets due to the wood boring insects they transport. Lifdek pallets are ISPM15 exempt, which prevents your products from being held at port.
Wood Pallet Injury Elimination
Pallet related injuries to employees and customers caused by heavy wood pallets and poor pallet quality are eliminated with smooth, light weight Lifdek pallets.
Recycling Revenue Increase
Lifdek pallets can be recycled with other corrugated boxes, generating additional recycling revenue. Over 73% of corrugated board is captured with today’s efficient recycling infrastructure – higher than any other packaging material.
