In addition, the processing equipments of plastic pallets have high degree of automation and large output. With the improvement of plastic mechanical properties and the decrease of raw materials cost, the cost of plastic pallets is no longer the bottleneck which restricted the use. One side is the development of the logistic industry drives the increase of the plastic pallets demand, the other side is the "main force" wooden pallets tend to failure, all these indicates that plastic pallets are facing enormous opportunities.
