Use an ISPM-15 Exempt Pallet and Remove the Time, Cost, and Hassle of Wood Pallets 

ISPM-15 outlines compliance regulations regarding wood packaging and transport materials in international trade. The standard describes phytosanitary measures that reduce the risk of the introduction of contaminating pests, insects, and other organisms and their potential negative effects on the environment and ecosystem, the spread of disease, and other global issues.  You can read the ISPM-15 measure here.

In order to meet ISPM-15 regulations, wood pallets, dunnage, and other wood packaging materials must either be heat treated or fumigated for acceptance into many countries around the world.  If your pallets aren't compliant, your shipment could be held or rejected, and you could also be faced with fines and penalties.

By shipping on an ISPM-15 exempt pallet, you can save time and money by not having to manage the treatment process and compliance of your pallet stock in addition to meeting import/export requirements at many borders around the world.

Because Green Ox Pallets are made from corrugated cardboard, we are ISPM-15 exempt (no heat or chemical treatment required for shipping).  In addition to the benefits of ISPM-15 exemption, our pallets also play a critical role in food, pharmaceutical, and other product safety because they are 100% sterile and bear no risk of product contamination from chemicals (chlorine, pesticides or fertilizers), biohazards (feces or blood), or infection from e-coli, listeria, and other food-related diseases.  The possibility of cross-contamination from multiple uses is also removed because our pallets were designed using a "one and done" model.

In addition to sterility and shipment benefits, our pallets are also 100% recyclable thereby increasing your recycling revenue, removing the hassle of reverse logistics, and decreasing your pallet recovery expenses... all while minimizing your environmental footprint! 

We invite you to learn more about how our feature-rich design provides a cost-effective, viable alternative to wood pallets.  Visit our Web site at www.GreenOxPallets.com or click here to complete a short online interest form and a member of our team will contact you.
