Special Pallet Requirements

Export Requirements

Recent outbreaks of pests have been traced back to transport packaging, which has led governments around the world to start cracking down on solid wood packaging including pallets, dunnage, and crates. The IPPC (International Plant Protection Committee) has established the ISPM-15 Standard for regulating wood packaging material in international trade. The ISPM-15 Standard require that both coniferous and non-coniferous pallets be either heat-treated (HT), kiln-dryed (KD), or fumigated with Mytehyl Bromide (MB), until the largest piece of wood in the pallet reaches and retains a temperature of 56ºC (133ºF) for a minimum of 30 minutes. Because the ISPM-15 Standard is subject to change, it is important to work with a pallet provider such as Olympic that has experience in International Shipping.

Mold and Moisture Control

Mold and moisture affect the safety and efficacy of pallets and, as such, require a vigilant, experienced team such as Olympic to inhibit mold and manage moisture levels. Two approaches to addressing these issues are drying pallets and chemical treatment. Drying methods including kiln drying (both softwood-hardwood), air drying (moisture only), and shed drying. Chemical treatments include chlorine bleach solution, Copper 8 quinolinolate, and X Mold E-Fusion. End users of pallets and their customers throughout the supply chain must approve the use of chemicals. Environmental management along the supply chain is critical in mold prevention programs.

Pest Control

In addition to being in compliance with ISPM 15, pest control is a concern for domestic shipments as well. Heat treating and chemical solutions are two alternatives utilized to treat pallets for pests. Environmental control and good housekeeping practices are also essential to controlling pests. Olympic can advise on pallet treatment options as well as inform you about potential issues to consider throughout the supply chain. Factors such as storage, packaging, and shipping must be part of the overall pest control plan.
