    Description

    To assess the impact of grocery pallet production on future hardwood resources, better information is needed on the current use of reusable pallets by the grocery and related products industry. A spatial model of pallet use in the grocery distribution system that identifies the locational aspects of grocery pallet production and distribution, determines how these aspects influence the demand and supply of grocery pallets, and assesses the overall impact of grocery pallet consumption on the forest resource is described. Also presented is a method for estimating the overall quantity of new grocery pallet consumption by grocery distribution centers. This method is useful in assessing the effect of changes in grocery pallet consumption on the hardwood resource in a particular region.
