Orlando is a major logistics hub for Florida as well as a tourist mecca. With Interstate-4 running through the city connecting Interstates 75 and 95 Orlando serves as an ideal distribution point for all of Florida. The city has booming aviation and aerospace, IT and manufacturing industries that gobble up pallets.
Manufacturers, distribution, warehousing and agricultural companies use either new and/or used pallets. Premier can provide either as well as remanufactured, or combo, pallets. Our recycled 48 x 40 pallets are the most common type and those pallets, oftentimes called GMA pallets, are sold based on their condition after repair. Our used GMA pallet grades include, premium A, standard A, B+ and B grade pallets. A more thorough delineation of our used pallets can be found here on our Recycled Wood Pallets page.
Many of our customers in Florida use new pallets built from southern yellow pine, the most common softwood lumber utilized for new pallets. In addition to pine, we also provide new hardwood pallets made from mixed species of eastern US hardwoods such as maple, hickory, oak and ash to name a few. Our pallet manufacturing plants in Florida and Georgia can produce both pine and hardwood pallets and even build pallets with an aggregate of the two such as hardwood stringers and pine deck boards.
An alternative to new pallets is a remanufactured or combo pallet. These pallets are built with reclaimed lumber and in some cases a blend of reclaimed (used) and new lumber. Depending on the size pallet needed, these pallets can be a more cost-effective choice when comparing new and combo pricing.
Premier also offers heat treatment for all three pallet types, new, recycled and remanufactured so that the pallets comply with the requirements for wood packaging export. Our heat treated pallets have a unique HT stamp signifying compliance with the ISPM-15 mandate.
Has your pallet supplier run out of pallets at times in the last year or two? Pallet shortages have become commonplace in our industry, especially on the recycled GMA pallet side. At Premier, making sure our customers never run out of pallets is one of our top priorities.
Finally, we employ the use of the Pallet Design System to engineer pallets to meet the needs of our customers while factoring in cost, lumber availability and specific unit load requirements. Our pallet professionals ask questions about your pallet’s current design, unit load, handling characteristics and downstream customer preferences in order to properly build a pallet specification or check your current one for cost-effectiveness and reliability.
They have provided new and recycled pallets to my business for years. Great service and pricing.
