Benefits of ECR Pallet  
     
 
 
 

Currently, there are 16 different pallet sizes in use in the market. Standardisation of pallets would provide the platform for pallet exchange. In the ideal scenario, goods can be transported from the manufacturer, through the distributor, to the retail store on the same pallet. By eliminating the need for manual transfer of goods to another pallet, productivity and work efficiency are improved. The reduction in labour and handling of goods will in turn lead to a reduction in delivery and transfer costs. Standardisation of pallet sizes will in turn allow standardisation of palletisers, racking and warehouse design for economy of space and facilitate automation.
