Detailed information on Correx® pallet boxes
The use of Correx® pallet boxes is growing in popularity for many reasons.
For example, compared to wood or cardboard pallet boxes, Correx® is more durable and longer lasting. It is also considerably lighter than wood – comparable with corrugated cardboard – which can help reduce shipping and transit costs.
Besides this, Correx® is resistant to moisture, grease, oil, and most chemicals. Its smooth surfaces allow you to easily clean and reuse your Correx® plastic pallet boxes.
Another key benefit of Correx®, compared with wooden crates and boxes, is that the plastic pallet boxes are easy to collapse when not in use. This feature can significantly reduce required storage, including on return journeys, if you use a closed-loop returnable packaging setup.
These benefits ensure that plastic pallet boxes are arguably the most cost-effective option over the mid to long term due to their competitive pricing and long lifespan.
Custom plastic pallet boxes
There are several options that you can specify when sourcing Correx® pallet boxes.
For example, depending on the weight of the items to be transported, you can specify thicker material to enhance strength or a thinner material to reduce weight (and costs).
Your pallet boxes can include lids, layer pads or internal divisions, and external printing. Print can allow the addition of company logos or to add part numbers, handling instructions, or even safety info.
You can also specify your foldable pallet boxes in a range of sizes. Whilst these can be manufactured to fit your business’s specific pallets perfectly, you can specify custom heights to match exact requirements (i.e. for product dimensions, storage, or transport availability).
And finally, your pallet boxes can be manufactured in various colours, everything from grey and black to bright blues and reds.
As such, collapsible pallet boxes manufactured from Correx® plastic are becoming increasingly popular in factories, warehouses, agriculture, industrial applications, and shipping of big or bulky items, as well as for efficient transit of multiple smaller items.

Questions regarding collapsible pallet boxes

However, if the info you require is not listed, please get in touch on 01793 754 457 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
What are plastic pallet boxes manufactured from?
Plastic pallet boxes are typically moulded from polypropylene or fabricated using Correx® material (a fluted plastic similar in structure to cardboard). The use of Correx®, however, provides several benefits, including reduced weight, lower costs, comparable lifespan, and the ability to fold flat when not in use.
Can plastic pallet boxes be folded flat on return journeys?
You can collapse Correx® pallet boxes – unlike many moulded plastic or wooden alternatives – when not in use. This feature allows for efficient return transit as part of a returnable packaging setup whilst also minimising storage requirements when not in use.
What colour pallet boxes are available?
Depending on the strength of the material required – and the number of pallet boxes needed – you can select from white, black, silver, green, red, yellow, or blue colours. These hues allow your plastic pallet boxes to match your branding and company identity or to use different colours to differentiate between products, shipments etc.
Are these better than cardboard pallet boxes?
Cardboard pallet boxes are an excellent option for single-trip applications (i.e. where they cannot be easily returned and are disposed of by the recipient). Correx® pallet boxes last over hundreds of trips, making them more cost-effective in the long run (and less impactful on the environment too).
Do these last as long as wooden pallet boxes?
Correx® pallet boxes can provide comparable strength to wooden pallet crates and moulded plastic options. Plastic pallet boxes have the advantage of being resistant to water and moisture, are easier to clean, and can help avoid some of the legislation regarding shipments of wood (ISPM15 standards).
Are plastic pallet boxes recyclable?
The Correx® material used for creating plastic pallet boxes is a form of polypropylene. This material is fully recyclable at the end of its useful life (although specialist facilities are required).
Can my pallet boxes have my company logo on them?
You can choose to add print to your pallet boxes, including logos, for enhanced brand awareness when moving through your supply chain (effectively free advertising). You can also include safety info, handling instructions, batch numbers and other important information as required.
