Presentation of a new pallet, ideal for exports

Published on 2012-11-28

Nortpalet has launched a new product, designed specifically to make exporters’ work simpler and avoid the tedious process of filling out documents at customs points. Our exports pallet is extremely lightweight, yet offers optimum features for long-haul consignments avoiding the inevitable and necessary fumigations required for wooden pallets.

Exports are regulated by ISPM 15 (the International Standards for Phytosanitary Measures) set by the UN, which is the international regulatory and authorising body. These standards are only applied to wooden pallets and packaging used for exports since 2004 and includes a steadily rising number of countries. You can find out more information at the following link:

These standards require a certificate of origin for the pallet, as well as another document certifying that it has been duly disinfected. Failure to provide these documents or any irregularities or delays may lead to hold ups in the transportation process. For this reason, Nortpalet recommends the use of our plastic pallet that does not require any of these documents, offering you complete peace of mind for your exports as plastic is exempt from these requirements. Furthermore, your customers can take advantage of their empty pallets, preventing waste from accumulating in their facilities which often involves expenditure.

Another key factor is that your products will project a better image on reaching their destination, and will also benefit from enhanced transportation conditions. If you would like to find out more about the benefits of plastic as a material for your goods transport items, then please visit t specific section on this website, which also contains details of the main differences between plastic and wooden pallets. Your customers will thank you for it, as the number of foreign customers that demand this solution from their suppliers is growing steadily.

Our plastic pallets are available in two versions, with and without skids, depending on your logistics requirements. Please feel free to contact us if you would like more information, or, if you would like to discover its capacity for yourself, simply request a product trial.
