These pallets are constructed of engineered plywood sourced from sustainable plantations, then coated with a proprietary polyurea spray called ExoBond. The resulting pallet is extremely durable, lightweight, fire-retardant, sustainable, hygienic, easily sanitized and repairable, skid-free, and come in standard and custom sizes, sas the company. While a typical wood pallet’s average lifespan is only three months, the Lightning pallet is estimated to be able to last more than 10 years.
What sets it apart from the other 2 billion pallets in the United States and another 6 billion around the world is its active radio-frequency identification device (RFID). By contrast, pallets with passive RFID can only share location information when they encounter a reader—typically at inbound receiving or outbound shipping—meaning the data is historic rather than current.
