Pallets of Italy

Jim & Mark Ruma recently went on vacation to Italy. After hours of sightseeing, they came across what could have been the original pallets of Pompeii! Tucked away in a small corner off the beaten path of an amazing tourist-filled area, Jim and Mark just had to get a closer look.

Could it really be? Pallets in Pompeii? Can they even escape the pallet business on their Italy vacation? Apparently not...

Honestly, how could the people of Pompeii move stone pallets? I am aware of wooden pallets, heat treated pallets, plastic pallets, we even make custom size pallets. But stone pallets????

Stacked along a stone wall, these Italian pallets were calling out to the Ruma's and a picture had to be taken. Back then, stone pallets were the way to go. With today's wooden pallets weighing 40 lbs on average for a 40 x 48, we can only imagine what it would take to move these original pallets of world.
