The standard 1000 X 1200mm CHEP wooden pallet is a characteristic artefact of modern life, as familiar as the traffic cone or the supermarket wire trolley. Like those ubiquitous objects it theoretically belongs to someone but is often encountered "outside the system". Like many unregarded objects it has a story to tell. During the war Australia was an important military supply base. At the conclusion of hostilities in the Pacific the Americans abandoned large amounts of materiel and associated handling equipment, including fork-lift trucks and pallets. The Australian government thus found itself in possession of a ready-made business with a sophisticated asset base and established infrastructure they say in Wagga Wagga. In 1949 it decided to privatise what was now known as the Commonwealth Handling Equipment Pool, and the Brambles company purchased the business in 1958, rapidly expanding it abroad. In Britain it went into partnership with the GKN company and the pallets are often referred to simply as "GKN blues" contradistinction to unpainted "white" Euro pallets (one of which is seen in the background above). CHEP-GKN rents its pallets to users, who pay something like 20p per pallet per day. Yes, all those pallets you see in back streets (like the one in the photo) or abandoned in the vicinity of trading estates, are being paid for by someone somewhere. Certain large warehouses and distribution centres are accredited as "banks" which act as an exchange point between the CHEP-GKN pallet pool and the distribution industry. It would be interesting to "tag" an individual pallet and see where it goes between leaving the pool and being received back into it. At the warehouse in which I work it is common to see pallets stencilled with the marks of CHEP's European subsidiaries. And where would we be without them? Modern warehousing functions entirely around the fork-lift truck and the wooden pallet (not to mention shrink-wrap). Without them we would have to dispense with Dexion storage racking and go back to multi-storied warehouses where goods are man-handled at floor level and brought to and from the ground by hoists. Properly regarded, the pallet is a moveable section of floor and the fork-lift truck is a hoist that can be moved about and positioned beneath it.
