Looking to use wooden pallets to transport goods internationally? Then you’ll need heat treated pallets!
Heat treated pallets not only ensure the safety of the product being shipped, but also the environment of the shipment’s destination.
With a no-deal Brexit on the cards, it’s becoming increasingly likely that regulations regarding the logistics industry will change. A no-deal Brexit means that all wooden pallets transported to and around Europe must be heat treated, otherwise they can be denied entry into the country.
This means millions of consumer goods will not reach their destination, unless they are transported on a heat treated pallet. PR Pallets want to help your business to be Brexit ready, by offering heat treated pallets that are available for dispatch in 24 hours!
Heat Treated Pallets from PR Pallets
PR Pallets were one of the first companies in the UK to begin manufacturing heat treated pallets and proudly boast over 10 years of experience doing so. With the international certification necessary to heat treat pallets or timber you need to export, we are able to provide documentary evidence (ISPM15 Certificate) with any order.
ISPM15 is the international standards for phytosanitary measures number 15. Developed by the International Plant Protection Convention (IPPC), ISPM15 directly addresses the need of heat treatment for any wood materials of a thickness greater than 6mm, used to ship products between countries. Its main purpose is to prevent international transport and spread of disease and insects that could negatively affect plants and ecosystems.
ISPM15 affects all wooden packaging materials including; pallets, crates and dunnages and requires they be debarked and then heat treated to a core temperature of 56ºC for a minimum of 30 minutes.
Why Choose PR Pallets?
As members of Timcon, PR Pallets adhere to strict quality control levels and comply with the UK WPMMP-HT programme. Our 220 pallet capacity heat treatment kiln is also inspected every six months to ensure satisfactory compliance. On average we heat treat over 2500 pallets and related products every week.
All heat treated pallets and other heat treated products you buy from us are accompanied by a heat treatment certificate and company registration, giving you peace of mind that your export process will run smoothly. Any timber packaging item that’s been treated with our state of the art kiln drying facility, is stamped with an internationally recognised mark to prove the item has been treated to ISPM15 standards. This essentially acts as a ‘passport’ for the goods, allowing them to be transported internationally knowing it does not contain pests.
