Heat treatment service for pallets from Enviro Pallets

Supplier News

Enviro Pallets (NSW) offers a heat treatment service for clients requiring pallets for the export market.

All timber pallets used in the export of goods from Australia must comply with International Standards for Phytosanitary Measures Publication 15 (ISPM 15). ISPM 15 is a measure developed by International Plant Protection Convention (IPPC) that directly addresses the need to sanitise certain material used to ship products between countries.

It affects items like shipping pallets and requires that pallets be heat treated or chemically fumigated, or made from alternative material, like paper (cardboard).

Enviro Pallets (NSW) has adopted the heat treatment method because it gives pallets has a much longer life-span than those which are chemically fumigated.

Due to the demand of export pallets, Enviro Pallets bit the bullet and installed the heat treatment module at its Glendenning complex in June and since then the service has been running hot.

Previously pallets marked for export were transported from Glendenning to a heat-treatment plant, unloaded from the truck to wait in queue to be in-turn loaded into a heat treatment facility. The pallets were then finally treated, unloaded from the facility and loaded onto a truck and then taken to the client.

It really was a waste of valuable manpower, time-consuming and all adding cost to the end product.

Enviro Pallets’ installation of the heat treatment module ensures that export quality pallets can be treated and delivered on the same day.

But the heat treatment service is just one reason why Enviro Pallets (NSW) has become a major player in the pallet game.

The environmentally-friendly company sells around 250,000 recycled pallets annually – second-hand softwood and hardwood standard (1165mm x 1165mm) pallets, 1100m x 1100m pallets, EURO 1 (1200m x 800m) and EURO 2 (1200mm x 1000mm) pallets plus a wide range of bastardised sized pallets.

Enviro Pallets (NSW) also manufactures new standard softwood and hardwood pallets and also provides a custom-made service for clients who require that special sized pallet or box.

The company also markets a whole range of plastic pallets – economy, heavy duty, rackable, industrial and export.

Enviro Pallets (NSW) is situated close by the M7 Freeway which in turn provides ready access to the rest of Sydney’s freeway system. This enables the Enviro Pallets (NSW) fleet of vehicles to get the job done ASAP.
