Paradigm Changing the Pallet to meet modern shipping demands
Paradigm offers customers the ability to replace their existing inferior wood pallets with a lighter and cleaner plastic pallets system that allows them to reduce, reuse and recycle cost effectively.
Our mission is to ensure an extensive implementation and a continuing improvement of an industry-leading plastic pallet technology that provides shipping with a more productive, cost-effective and sustainable material-handling platform.
Light WeightPatented hollow-board design means optimal strength-to-weight performance for the major part of payload distribution. Paradigm pallets are up to 50% lighter than wood and other plastic alternatives. They cost less to move freight, reduce GHG emission and work place injuries.
Estimated 40+ trips over their life cycle, making them 10% of the cost per turn of wood pallets. No mold, rot, pests, cross- contamination or product damage. Uncapped hollow-board platform can be easily cleaned.
Infinite Design Flexibility
Over 50% of the pallets used in the market today are non-standard sizes. No problem as Paradigm can easily meet clients’ custom shipping requirements.
Customers have 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.
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.
