Kingwood, TX – Apr 5, 2020 – The Pallet Guys, a pallet and crate company based in Greater Houston, recently made an important announcement about the state of the pallet industry during the COVID-19 pandemic. According to the company, the U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS) and the U.S. Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA) have designated the industry as “essential workforce critical infrastructure.” According to The Pallet Guys, companies within the industry recognize federal guidance is critical during the COVID-19 pandemic. The company – and industry – will work with federal, state, and local officials to follow guidelines and recommendations during this time.
The Pallet Guys have provided some context regarding the pallet industry’s designation as critical/essential. The industry – with its development and use of pallets – is a vital link in the national supply chain. Without the use of pallets for shipping and storage, the U.S. (and global) supply chain would see major disruptions. The industry helps Americans ship and receive essential items during the COVID-19 pandemic, including medicine, sanitizers, and food. For this reason, companies like The Pallet Guys will continue operations during the COVID-19 pandemic. The company is grateful for the opportunity to supply Houston, TX residents with the supplies that they need during this difficult time.
The Pallet Guys also shared information about the state of the pallet industry since the outbreak of COVID-19. According to the company, nearly 2 billion pallets were transported across the U.S. on any given day, prior to the pandemic. The company stated that, because of the COVID-19 pandemic, the total number of pallets in circulation on a given day are likely higher than 2 billion. The company attributes this increase to the spike in demand for food medicine, and other essential goods amidst the outbreak of COVID-19. The Pallet Guys stated that approximately 93% of all goods that are distributed in the U.S. are shipped on pallets. The pallet company – and industry – will continue to keep Americans supplied.
