Security is an ongoing concern for every business, whether you ship locally or internationally. Wooden pallets that are manufactured to meet stringent security specifications can be a major plus for businesses shipping sensitive goods. One of our partners is The Customs-Trade Partnership Against Terrorism (C-TPAT).
This group works to grant certification to successful candidates who cooperate with U.S. Customs and Border Security
in order to develop effective security procedures for all phases of their operations. The program helps to meet safety concerns regarding terrorism threats to/from merchandise imported to the United States.
Health and Safety. Preventing the Spread of Diseases and Pests
compliance is a must in the North American shipping industry. In order for shipments of goods to move freely across international borders, including our own and the USA & Mexico; shipments must meet the heat-treatment standards set out in the ISPM 15 regulations. Only certified wooden pallet companies meet these requirements outlined.
