How Different Pallet Colours Are Used Across Industries

27 Jun 2024


Plastic pallets are widely used in various industries, offering durability, versatility, and ease of use. However, beyond just their material, shape, and size, their colour is also a customisable feature that can actually have quite a large impact on how they are used throughout different industries. 

Find out more about how coloured pallets can enhance your industry below. You can also buy your various coloured pallets now on our website and get a bespoke pallet quote via our online quoting engine for international orders.

Enhancing Aesthetics and Functionality

All of the primary colours are used across pallet manufacturing, and many of the pallets we create are typically blue pallets and sometimes red pallets and crates. While most of our pallet colours are due to the colour of the reclaimed material they are made from, we can always tailor our manufacturing to your specific needs with a quote.

  • Blue plastic pallets are commonly used in the food industry due to their distinguishable nature, which helps to prevent cross-contamination. A great example of this is our fishing boxes, which have a bright blue hue. 
  • Red plastic pallets are ideal for butchers and other similar industries, as their vibrant colouration helps to mask the appearance of blood and other meat juices. 
  • Green plastic pallets are associated with sustainability and are often used in industries that prioritize environmental responsibility. 
  • Yellow plastic pallets are used for cautionary purposes, indicating potential hazards or areas requiring special attention. 

Black plastic pallets are versatile and provide a sleek and modern look, suitable for various applications. Many of our black plastic pallets are newly manufactured to high standards, allowing them to last for years. 

Organisation Benefits

In addition to aesthetics, plastic pallet colours can serve functional purposes. For example, using different colours for different product categories in a warehouse or storage facility can aid in organization and inventory management. Assigning specific colours to different product types allows for easy identification and location of items, improving efficiency and productivity.
