Pallet lumber and pre-cut pallet stock certainly makes your life a lot easier, but there is also a huge cost benefit when you purchase all the pallet lumber you need to build or recycle pallets pre-cut for your precise dimensions. The biggest cost-benefit is buying power. Unless you purchase a lot of fiber directly from a sawmill in a long-standing contract, you may have trouble either getting the fiber you need or getting it at a decent price.
If the volatility the lumber market has seen in the past two years has shown us anything, it’s shown us just how tough the lumber market can get. If you don’t have the buying power to get ahold of fiber with good terms, then you just can’t get it at all. Here at Conner, we have long-standing contracts with several mills that ensure we have the fiber our customers need. That gives YOU a lot of cost savings over trying to go it alone.
But there are several other ways that pallet lumber and pre-cut pallet stock provides cost and saving benefits.
