Paradigm
Changing the Pallet to meet modern shipping demands

Paradigm offers customers the ability to replace their existing inferior wood pallets with a lighter, cleaner, recycled plastic pallets system that allows them to reduce, reuse and recycle cost effectively.

Our mission is to provide an ongoing improvement of an industry-leading recyclable plastic pallets system that meets modern shipping needs for a lighter, sustainable and cost-effective material-handling platform.

Light Weight Plastic Pallet

Light Weight

Patented hollow-board design means superior strength-to-weight performance than wood, composite and plastic alternatives. Paradigm pallets are up to 50% lighter and cost less to move freight, reduce GHG emission and work place injuries.

Durable Plastic Pallet

Durable

Estimated 30+ trips over their life cycle, making them 1/3 cost per turn of wood pallets while eliminating the costs related to wood pallet repair and disposal. No mold, rot, pests, cross- contamination or product damage. Uncapped hollow-board platform can be easily cleaned for multiple re-uses.
Custom Plastic Pallet

Infinite Design Flexibility

Over 50% of the pallets used in the market today are non-standard sizes. No problem as Paradigm can design and build to meet clients’ custom shipping and product requirements. Customers can partner across a broad range of product categories with minimal set-up changes.


100% Recycled Plastic Pallet

Waste-to-Value

Paradigm offers its customers the ability to take plastic waste that they or others produce and convert it into a finished fully recyclable plastic pallets solution. Paradigm takes advantage of 100% regrind to lower costs, reduce environmental waste and help customers meet their supply chain sustainability goals.


Reduce Your Environmental Footprint

Recycling done right

Paradigm offers its customers the ability to take plastic waste that they or others produce and recycle the waste into a finished pallet. Paradigm has saved a major plastics product manufacturer over $3 million by converting their post industrial waste stream into plastic pallets used on the factory floor today.

Environmentally Beneficial

Environmental concerns are an important driver of innovation within industrial supply chains. Using Paradigm recycled plastic pallets can significantly reduce broken and discarded wood pallets taken to landfill. Paradigm’s lighter pallet systems also significant reduce emissions and cost per trip. Shippers can build more optimal loads because of the reduced weight displacement (reducing non-value added weight).

How a multi-billion dollar plastics packaging company goes from waste to Paradigm

With annual sales exceeding $5 billion and 80 global manufacturing facilities, one of the largest plastics packaging producers and marketers in the world is turning their plastic waste stream into Paradigm recyclable pallets and ultimately big cost savings. A Paradigm customer recognized that wasted materials from the manufacture of their plastic packaging products were going to landfill, and that the waste could be recycled into a commercial product. Beginning in 2010, this customer implemented Paradigm’s Closed Loop Program, converting its scrap HDPE waste stream from production into plastic pallets. In just the 1st year they utilize 395,000 Lbs of scrap resin to replace over 72,000 inferior wooden pallets with reusable Paradigm pallets. The end result has been over $3 million in savings to date in their Midwest manufacturing operation. Another example of waste-to-value with recycled resins.
