A Review of Contamination Concerns for Wooden Pallets
[Editor's Note: Read Part II here.]
The humble wooden pallet continues to
play a vital role in the pharmaceutical industry.
Production materials and consumables
transported to a production facility
are often received and stored on wooden
pallets before they are sampled, tested and
transferred onto metal or molded plastic
pallets for use in production areas. In addition,
finished products leaving the production
facility are often transferred back
on to wooden pallets in the warehouse for
shipping and distribution.
