When constructing pallets with green lumber, insects often live in the freshly cut wood. Heat treating pallets raises the temperature of the wood to dispose of any remaining bugs, which prevents them from spreading between companies and countries.
Heat treatment is mandated by U.S. customs under the ISPM-15 program. It requires that all pallets that enter and exit the country.
93 percent of the pallets in cycle across the U.S. are wooden. Wood pallets are easier to recycle and repair than plastic or metal pallets, making them a sustainable packaging staple. We’re proud of our green initiatives and are happy to provide our clients with a sustainable way to handle their reusable packaging materials.
Our pallet design software provides our suppliers with an exact blueprint of the pallet structure needed to support and ship your products safely based on the density of the lumber and the type of load being carried. These blueprints enable our staff to efficiently build durable, reliable pallets that are ready to ship when the time comes.
Because our design software relies on unique pallet specifications, it gives our customers peace of mind knowing their pallets are designed specifically for the products they carry. This increases safety during the shipping process and once the pallets are in storage.
