About this Report

This report is intended to assist buyers of wood pallets.

Wood pallets are made from sawmill softwood or hardwood lumber and are primarily supplied by manufacturers, however they can also be rented from pallet pooling service providers or pallet management companies that repair, maintain and distribute recycled, used or damaged pallets.
