Moving towards a Pallet-Free World

We're leading a movement away from the old ways of shipping and storage, which often lean heavily on wooden pallets. This change is not just about cutting costs—it's about caring for our planet too.

They’re made from trees we can’t afford to lose, and treating them to be safe for use involves chemicals we’re better off without. By moving towards alternatives like slip sheets, we’re not just making a smart business decision. We’re joining hands in a collective effort to make choices that are better for our planet.

In 2005 the USDA implemented the international standard for wood packaging material that was approved by the International Plant Protection Convention (IPPC). The IPPC standard calls for most wood packaging material to be either heat treated or fumigated with methyl bromide in accordance with the Guidelines and marked with an approved international mark certifying that treatment. This rule affects all persons using wood packaging material in connection with importing goods into the United States.
