Every loading pallet, regardless of the type, in order to be considered safe during the operation phase, must meet certain formal requirements already at the implementation stage. The loading pallet marketed has a certain life span. The life of the pallet depends on many factors. First of all, they are related to the physical and economic aging of the product . Physical aging consists in the fact that the materials from which the products have been made lose their properties, and the economic ones are the result of the emergence of new, better products on the market, better meeting the specific needs of recipients. The operational life of the cargo pallet also depends on the organization of the transport process, branch and means of transport as well as the date of its completion. The concept of calculating the total cost of ownership of a reusable loading pallet in logistic processes, proposed in the article, allows to determine the total costs of its operation. It is based on the idea of Total Cost of Ownership (TCO), which includes total acquisition costs, installation costs, maintenance costs and costs of its disposal over particular time
