Wood for Pallets in the Shipping Industry
There are few things as omnipresent in the shipping industry as wood pallets. Since the twentieth century, pallets carrying shrink-wrapped material have gradually replaced wooden crates as the preferred method of transporting goods. When used in conjunction with fork lifts and pallet jacks, they streamline warehousing, allowing for mass quantities of items to be moved and stored easily.
MTE carefully harvests wood from the Menominee Forest to supply wooden skid manufacturers with high quality materials to keep these workhorses of the shipping industry in service longer. Whether you’re producing stringer pallets, block pallets or composite versions, MTE has the lumber and by-products to keep the pallets in production.
Kiln Dried Pallet Wood for Phytosanitary Compliance
Because of the International Plant Protection Convention, the majority of pallets crossing national borders must comply with sanitary standards (ISPM 15). MTE’s kiln dried wood meets the mandated criteria, preventing plant diseases and invasive insect species from being transported across national lines. MTE also supplies manufacturers with wood chips and shavings to produce oriented strand board, which is exempt from the regulations of IPPC regulations.
