Tri County offers heat treated pallets for sale, certified for use as international pallets, for customers in NE Ohio, western Pennsylvania and W. Virginia.
Wood pallets are a vital component of the world’s storage and distribution system. About 80 countries require imported goods to be shipped with heat treated pallets that meet the international pallet standard ISPM-15.
The International Standard for Phytosanitary Measures publication number 15 (ISPM-15) is the regulation of wood packaging material (WPM) in international trade. The regulations were established to assist in the prevention of the worldwide spread of plant pests and diseases through internationally used packaging materials by using chemical or heat treated wood packaging material (WPM) for pallets, crates and dunnages. As part of the United Nations Food & Agriculture Organization (FAO), the International Plant Protection Convention (IPPC) controls the regulations through the cooperation of member governments of the United Nations.
ISPM-15 applies to coniferous softwood and non-coniferous hardwood used as raw wood packaging material. According to the ISPM-15 standard, wood packing materials from North America must be kiln-dried and free of bark, insect holes, living insects and nematodes. Heat treated pallets for international shipping from Tri County Pallet will ensure you always meet this requirement. Learn more about the process for heat treated pallets.
