Pallets (also known as crates) are used to transport goods around the country. They do it by giving a good base to the products and thus saving them from getting sustaining harm. Also they give a good foundation to both pile and transfer goods with a forklift truck.
Traditionally pallets are made of timber, but in the past few years with the progress in plastics, they've been made from this substance. There are many companies like Craig Timber Products that sell the wooden crates or pallets.

The Benefits of wooden pallets
If you choose wood, then here are the benefits that it provides you:
Price: Timber pallets manufactured from ordinary and readily available wood can be quite cheaply manufactured, meaning that could be more economical to purchase, in contrast to plastics that require a more complex manufacturing procedure.
Easier to find: If you want to own the pallets yourself then wooden pallets are very easily sourced from most builders' merchants or hardware stores. Plastic pallets are much more specialized and not so readily available to buy.
Easier to mend: Pallets may have quite a difficult life, so often get ruined. However, with wooden pallets you can often easily fix them yourself by simply replacing sections of wood or nails.
Strength: Wood can be very good at taking very heavy weights, which might place too much stress on some plastic crates.
