We would like to share some photos from the NWPCA Congressional Fly-In which our very own Kathleen Dietrich, participated with Government legislators, representing Commercial Lumber and Priority Pallets. This was an event in with issue-briefings, Capitol Hill visits, Federal agency meetings, and lots of networking.
Did you know that 95% of all Pallets in the United States are Wooden Pallets? Over 1.3 trillion dollars in merchandise is transported by Wooden Pallets Annually. Wooden Pallets are Sustainable and Recyclable and do not enter into landfills. They are the only shipping platform that has been deemed as Bio-Preferred by the USDA. In the United States, over 50,000 people are employed in the Pallet Industry. The Pallet Industry uses 45% of all hardwood lumber and 15% of all softwood lumber produced!
