The market for custom-designed pallet jacks has grown because more businesses and industries today are extremely customized and diversified themselves. This has created a whole new set of needs and an environment where simply put, you won't always be able to find what you need without getting it carefully engineered and built on a custom basis.
If you think your organization might be falling into this realm, then consider the following ideas and examples of export pallets.
More businesses are working with different kinds of material handling than ever before. This is a result of new technology, new kinds of industry, business and shipping, and much more. As a result, you will find that the standard pallets that typical businesses always work with do not really apply to your situation.
The concept of standardization is actually limiting, so in many cases, diversification and customization will allow your business to be more efficient and productive based upon its own needs.
In this case, you might need to carry things that have odd or extra-large sizes, maybe in large geometrical shapes besides a rectangle or square, and much more. This calls for customization in the form of wider forks, even bases as opposed to forks, recessed platforms, high lift capacities, and more. It all depends on the specific kind of materials and cargo that you will be working with.
Custom pallet jacks are also often designed depending on the circumstances and environment that you use them in. One example is a particularly tight or narrow space, where you need something to safely maneuver without being so wide. This calls for a special design as well, even though with customization most people tend to think of wider as opposed to more narrow.
