Why Composite Pallets?


Fiber Reinforced Lightweight Composite

Bastian Solutions integrates leading technologies in material handling and information systems coupled with proven operational strategies. 

Our experts combine the powers of scalable material handling systems, innovative software and custom automation engineering for complete, unique solutions. Our goal is to use these tools to help companies, across a broad spectrum of industry segments, become leaders in their industries. 

We know material handling solutions do not come in a one-size-fits-all package. That’s why we hold decades of experience in custom vertical industry solutions. Our experts partner with you to engineer a material handling system focused on your business objectives.

One of the most overlooked components of an efficient material handling platform is the pallet. We understand current challenges and trade-offs one must face when deciding which pallet to buy. Bastian Solutions took the challenge head on and engineered a pallet with the benefits of the wood block pallet (upfront cost and strength), the benefits of plastic (cleanliness, international shipping, and re-usability) and added additional benefits.

Key Attributes



With our innovative Fiber Reinforced Lightweight Composite Core and Armored Skin,the pallet is rackable up to 2800lbs, impact resistant, dimensionally stable, and is reusable for more trips. No more one time use pallets and no longer will products be damaged due to pallet failure. 



Wrapped in our engineered Armored Skin, the composite pallet boasts a rugged architecture that is abrasion resistant and eliminates creep. Designed to withstand the harshest warehouse environments, have a long life expectancy, and is fire retardant 



No more injured employees due to splinters or protruding nails. Loss of inventory due to a broken wood pallet is a thing of the past. The composite pallet is constructed to ensure your employee’s safety 


Cost Savings

Composite Pallets offer the most competitive life cycle cost while providing all the benefits of a more expensive plastic or steel pallet, at the low cost of a traditional wood pallet. Eliminating the high upfront costs for quality pallets



Composite pallets are constructed with low environmental impact materials that enable the composite pallet to be reusable for years to come, greatly reducing the use of natural resources such as wood and required landfills.



High sanitation areas for food or medical products  need to avoid outside contaminants. We engineered our composite pallets to meet FDA cleanliness requirements. The pallet is washable, eliminating the need to fumigate wood pallets that may contain outside pests or bacteria.



We sought out to apply our expertise in material handling systems integration with the Composite Pallet. It is compatible with your current supply chain and material handling equipment (MHE) such as pallet conveyor, pallet dispensers, AS/RS, fully automated systems, and robotic palletizers.



Ideal for defined loop supply chains such as grocery, pharmaceutical, distribution centers, automotive, and home & garden.

Additional Features


Smart Tag

Composite Pallets can be equipped with an asset tracking system or smart device that uses technologies such as GPS, Bluetooth, and cellular to provide telemetry capabilities that go beyond simply just tracking: it can generate live data which can be used in cloud analytics to provide deep insights into the transportation, treatment, and status of a customer’s pallet.


Marketing Opportunity

Composite Pallets can have custom graphics installed to better reflect your company's brand and identify particular shipments. Custom colors can be requested.
