Air cargo industry and PallRuns®
Why air cargo companies are testing PallRuns®?
With efficiency and environmental pressures on all nations increasing, air freight sector is more interested in packaging and pallet manufacturers that can lower total supply chain costs and help them be compliant with environmental regulations.
In Eltete PallRuns, the air cargo industry is finding the sustainable fibre-based transport solutions needed to make carbon emission reduction a reality for the aviation sector.
If it weighs more, then it takes more energy to move.
If takes more energy to move, that’s an environmental cost.
The heavy packaging of the air cargo industry
Eltete’s innovative production development is driven by the needs of its customers, while at the same time taking into consideration environmental issues.
Air cargo is traditionally transported in airplanes on big metal trays size 2000-3000 mm x up to 2000-3000 mm. On top of the tray is traditionally a wooden construction that has been used to stabilize the final pallets.
Huge pallet + Heavy weight = more fuel consumption!
In order to achieve sustainable goals, several cargo handling companies, all global forwarders in the air cargo business, are investing in lighter-weight PallRuns® – cargo pallet runners – to replace the huge wooden construction.
The solution that makes the difference!
Eltete PallRun® is 100% recyclable and a great alternative for replacing wooden or other kind of palletrunners/pallets. Thanks to its lightweight combined with extraordinary strong solid board structure, it is the perfect choice for the freight forwarders focused on reducing shipment emissions.

HOW MUCH DOES A CARTON PALLET SOLUTION WEIGH?
Our standard 1,2 x 0,8 mt pallet in a heavy-duty quality configuration weighs under 5 kg! This is 1/4 of the weight of a traditional wooden pallet. Now imagine how much you can save…
DOES ANY CARTON PALLET SOLUTION NEED TRATMENT?
Absolutely not. All our solutions are ISPM-15 compliant. They don’t need any treatment and are accepted anywhere in the world. Using carton-based solutions can reduce the hazardous materials at your facility and around your product and employees.
HOW MUCH WEIGHT CAN A CARTON PALLET TAKE?
Independent laboratory tests have demonstrated that, in a static compression test, a normal-size pallet with Eltete PallRuns® (pallet feet) can withstand a load of 10 tonnes.
WHY USE CARTON PACKAGING INSTEAD OF OTHER MATERIAL?
You will reduce your transport, warehousing and labour costs and save time. Carton packaging is lightweight, reusable, biodegradable and fully recyclable. Plastic takes a thousand of years to biodegrade and wood must be shredded and nails and staples removed for recycling. This can be quite costly.
