If you are you unable to secure supply of traditional wooden pallets, try these!

First Alliance Logistics Management (FALM) is an industry-leading pallet supplier that has proven to increase efficiency and reduce costs for companies of all sizes nationwide.

In today’s increasingly challenging pallet market, finding excess capacity of traditional wooden pallets is becoming a difficult task in most markets.  As an alternative to exorbitantly priced, recycled or new wooden pallets, FALM has the ability to offer you alternative pallet options.

As a partner in FALM, Litco International, Inc has appointed FALM as a sales outlet for their Engineered Molded Wood ™ pallets.

What is an Engineered Molded Wood™ Pallet?

These pallets are often referred to as “Presswood Pallets”.  The pallets are designed for high-strength and stiffness. They are compression molded under high-heat and pressure from a combination of wood fiber and resin. They are inherently sanitary and bug free, enabling them to meet the IPPC-ISPM 15 requirements for export use.  They are also nest-able, which allows them to save valuable warehouse space.  See the pallets in action at https://www.litco.com/pallet-handling/.
