If you are shipping large or heavy equipment, using a custom pallet collar alongside your pallet can significantly improve protection during transit.
Unlike standard options, custom pallet collars are tailored to specific products rather than a standard pallet size. Custom sizing allows the pallet collar to brace products during transit, preventing movement and potential damage. Custom options, such as ramps for unloading heavy items on castors or wheels, can also be incorporated. Read more

About custom pallet collars
Custom pallet collars, manufactured from timber and foam, are popular for export packaging for large, bulky or heavy items.
Manufactured to custom sizes based on your product, custom pallet collars brace your product so it cannot move around on the pallet when being handled or transported. Doing this significantly minimises the opportunity for transit damage.
Custom pallet collars commonly include a foam lining on the inside surfaces, preventing scuffs or marking to your product. The foam also provides a degree of cushioning during transit.
Our pallet collars are suitable for export (using ISPM 15 heat-treated timber) and also use wood from FSC sources.
GWP can also provide full pallet boxes on request. These can be as simple as heavy-duty corrugated sleeves to slide over your pallet collar, a full pallet box, all the way up to a custom-engineered composite pack. Special features, such as ramps to help unload products on wheels or castors, can also be included.

What are pallet collars?
Pallet collars are a wooden sleeve placed on top of a wooden pallet. Whilst businesses often use standard pallet collars as an alternative to a pallet box or wooden crate, you can use custom versions to brace a product on a pallet to prevent movement and damage during handling.
What are pallet collars used for?
Pallet collars are a form of transit packaging. Alongside a traditional wooden pallet, collars are popular for shipping bulky, heavy or industrial items.
What is the difference between a standard and custom pallet collar?
Standard pallet collars typically replace a pallet box or shipping crate, as users can stack them to create a semi-bespoke (height) container. Custom pallet collars, however, cannot be stacked but are the specific size required to prevent products or equipment from moving when on a pallet.
Can you stack pallet collars?
Whilst standard wooden pallet collars can be stacked to create a wooden shipping crate, custom pallet collars generally cannot be stacked. However, they can be manufactured in bespoke heights to suit your specific application.
How do custom pallet collars help prevent damage?
Custom pallet collars can significantly help to reduce damage caused by movement during transit. They effectively hold the product or equipment in position on the pallet. Custom pallet collars also commonly include foam linings, which protect the surfaces in contact from scuffing and marking while also providing a level of cushioning.
