Raw materials shortage in the market of pallet manufacturers

After slowing down the work of producers of the pallet elements, the January cold has also adversely affected the work of pallet producers. Due to the shortage of raw materials, they are unable to carry out orders. As stated by foreign partners of UAB Juodeliai, about 30% of orders from January currently remain outstanding. Some clients are willing to pay a higher price for pallet boards, expecting faster delivery of products.

Due to thawing weather in early February the work of Lithuanian sawmills has activated. However, the production works in the first weeks of February are assigned to carry out the orders of January. Wood processing companies, including UAB Juodeliai, with obligations to customers since January, takes only a small proportion of new orders. New orders of March are planned to be taken only in the third and fourth weeks of February.
