The Future of Exporting is Plastic
Gorilla Pallets specializes in plastic export pallets that are exempt from ISPM15 regulations. These pallets are not just a cost-effective alternative to wood but also come with a unique nesting capability. Imagine stacking 75–90 pieces into an 8-foot stack, thereby saving valuable storage space.
What is ISPM15 and Why Should You Care?
ISPM15 (International Standards for Phytosanitary Measures No. 15) is a set of regulations aimed at preventing the spread of non-native parasites and diseases through wood packaging in international trade. The regulations require wood products to undergo temperature treatment to eliminate the risk of pests. However, plastic pallets like those from Gorilla Pallets are exempt from these regulations, offering a hassle-free exporting experience. For more information on ISPM15, you can visit the International Plant Protection Convention website.
The California Perspective
In California, ISPM15 regulations are stringently followed, given the state’s significant role in international trade. Being exempt from these regulations gives businesses an edge, especially when you consider the time and costs involved in treating wooden pallets. For California-specific ISPM15 regulations, you can refer to the California Department of Food and Agriculture website.
The Nesting Capability: A Game-Changer
One of the standout features of Gorilla Pallets is their nesting capability. You can nest 75–90 pieces into an 8-foot stack, which is a game-changer in terms of storage efficiency. This feature alone can significantly reduce your storage costs.
Beyond ISPM15: The Environmental Angle
Plastic pallets are not just about dodging regulations; they are also an environmentally responsible choice. They are made from recycled materials and can be recycled again, making them a sustainable option for businesses looking to reduce their carbon footprint.
