Understanding the current state of Pallet Supply, Shortages, and Alternatives

Given our experience and position as Australia’s Leaders in Industrial Packaging Solutions, we were invited by FTA to share some insight into the recent and current Pallet Supply issues facing our Industry and its implications in supporting other Industries.
