Wood has been the primary material of choice for pallets used to transport goods for decades now, namely based on the fact that it is strong, cost effective and readily available. Wooden pallets can also be used to export shipments if they are heat treated according to ISPM 15, making them an invaluable commodity in the international shipping industry.
Pallets can come in many sizes and configurations, with the two major categories being stringer and block pallets. The regularity of these types depend by region and also by the type of product they are carrying. When it comes to wooden pallets, soft woods can be used as low cost, one-way options where hardwood pallets are often more expensive and used for returnable flows.
