Palltronics to Setup Manufacturing Facility in SouthPoint, Mocksville, NC

Palltronics is setting up their first manufacturing facility in a newly completed 253,052 SF facility in SouthPoint Business Park, Mocksville, North Carolina. The maker of the world’s first fully trackable shipping pallet has already sold out the first three years of production. In addition to manufacturing, the facility will also include an innovation center, which will be tasked with continuously improving the pallet’s materials and technology.

The Palltronics shipping pallet is embedded with electronics that offer track and trace capabilities. Using GPS technology, each pallet can be traced in “real-time”. The system also includes temperature and humidity sensors and an accelerometer that helps clients ensure perishable products arrive at their destination at peak quality. The accelerometer indicates any unusual shock or vibration that a shipment may experience while in transit.

The hybrid pallets are manufactured from a wood substrate coated with a proprietary formulation that includes an antimicrobial/antifungal agent, making them lightweight, cleaner & virtually indestructible. Unlike typical wooden pallets that last 2 to 3 years, testing simulations indicate that Palltronics pallets will last 10 years.

The pallets are designed for high-velocity distribution channels such as protein, produce, and pharmaceuticals. In those industries, companies do not buy their pallets, they rent them from a shared pool. Pallets are leased for as long as needed and then picked up, inspected, and delivered to the next customer. A pallet could hold candy or packaged food one month and perishable food or delicate electronics the next.
