Why Use Heat Treated Pallets?
Heat treated pallets are required for all wood packaging materials used in international shipments.
Some other reasons why you should invest in heat treated pallets are:
- Export Compliance: Heat-treating causes wood to become more resistant to water, mould and bacteria, eventually making it less prone to pest infestation. Heat-treated pallets are mandatory for exports in order to reduce the risk of pest infestation.
- Reduced weight: Heat treatment takes the moisture out of new wood, which lightens the pallet, resulting in lower fuel consumption during transportation.
- Lower risk of bacterial growth: Wood is a porous material absorbs moisture, which makes it a breeding ground for bacteria and mould. This can result in product contamination and load rejection due to unsanitary conditions. Heat-treating causes wood to become more resistant to water, mould and bacteria.
