The Blue Pallet

Certain things are just hard to improve on. The classic example: the mousetrap. Also: the paperclip. And, the super-size version: the pallet.In its way, the pallet is perfect. A few pieces of cheap lumber nailed together, without an extra nail or board. It keeps things a few inches off the floor and works with a forklift. Amazing.This perfect system of moving stuff around on pallets has been around for a long time. And for basically 50 years, no one really improved on it in this country. #FullPodcastAvailable #Podcasts
