Export pallets are pallets that companies used to ship in and out of the country. They have to be ISPM15 which means your pallets can go across the borders legally. The pallets are then heat treated pallets or are a non pours pallets like Plastic or Styrofoam or Presswood Pallet.
For heat treated pallets the pallets are heated at a certain temperature and given a stamp on each pallets and paperwork is provided with a cost from companies. The stamp that has a registered number on it and paperwork that you pallets have been heat treated properly. The number is traced to this company showing the borders who did your stamping of each pallet. This shows the borders that your pallets have been prepared with authorized companies – with the stamp on each pallet proving this.
If you do not have this stamp and paperwork, your pallets may be held at the border until you get the proper stamp and paperwork. The stamp lasts about a month and then you will have to get another stamp after that date. This time factor has changed in the past so please look this up, one site you can look this up at is www.ispm15.com.
When you use non-pours pallets they are ISPM15 exempt. They can go back and forth across the borders with ease. You do Not have to have the stamp or paperwork; this again is Plastic, Styrofoam and Presswood pallets. They allow this as bugs cannot lay eggs into the pallets.
Here are types of pallets companies use for export pallets:
Used Wooden Pallets
We carry a range of the most popular pallet types. Our Used Wooden Pallets stock is refurbished to a high standard and at lower cost than new pallets. In many cases reconditioned pallets are the most appropriate and cost effective choice. We can supply a t/l to large stocks of these.
Used Standard Wooden Pallets
48 x 40
The standard size pallet
is 48 x 40 GMA pallet and is available in a number of pallet types and weight
bearing capacities. Call us for what you need.
Top and Bottom lead boards are 6”. The rest of the boards are 4” wide. All boards spaced evenly. Total of 7 top boards and 5 bottom boards. 3 Stringers / Runners notched meaning 4 way. Bottom boards are chamfered (so a pallet jack can run over them smoothly).
Standard Grade A (#1) Pallet
GMA board configuration - with the 6” leads top and bottom. The rest of the deck boards are 4” wide on the top and bottom. Stringers may be repaired with metal plates (most companies do Not want more than 2 plates per stack or none at all).
The wood color is blonder and nicer looking than the Grade B (#2) Pallet. Good for racking (some companies will only rack when they have no plates) and for Export after being Heat Treated.
Pallet made be with Hardwood or Softwood. If a company says they are HW it is impossible for them to be 100% HW as they have been repair before them. (Some Pallet Companies might suggest they are 80 – 85% HW as they themselves would have repaired all with HW but some Pallet Company before them may have repaired with SW).
Grade B (#2) Pallet
Spacing of boards may not be less than 3 ½” wide (width of your hand). The lead boards do not have to be 6’’ leads. Some portion of an original stringer is either cracked or missing and a reinforcing piece of wood, called a sister stringer or repair block or plugs, has been added to the original stinger. This makes for a solid structural repair that spans the notch on the original stringer.
Wood may be SW or HW. These pallets are our most economical pallet and mainly used in Export after being Heat Treated.
(Some companies only put one stringer repair per pallet and some put 2 – 3 plugs for stringer repair. Some companies call the 2-3 stringer repair pallets a grade C (#3) Pallet. Some companies make sure that the stringer length is the same length as the stringer that needs repair – example a GMA pallet plug would be 48”. Some companies never rack Grade B (#2) pallets.)
