About custom size pallets
Whilst standard and euro pallets are widely used and accepted by fulfilment and transport companies, they are only sometimes suitable for your products, parts or equipment. This scenario is where custom-size pallets can be a great option.
Manufactured to the exact size that you require, custom pallets can accommodate a range of unusually shaped or sized objects and allow for easy movement.
Besides this, custom-size pallets can help maximise the storage space available at your warehouse, reducing costs. Similarly, custom-size pallets can allow you to transport more products per shipment, reducing both transport costs and CO2 emissions.
The quality of timber and manufacturing processes used at GWP also ensures you can use your pallets over multiple trips if required.
All of the timber used in your custom-size pallets is from FSC sources and is heat treated to ISPM 15 standards to make them suitable for export.
And finally, besides custom pallets, GWP can provide you with a complete transit solution. This may be a cardboard pallet box, a custom timber crate that incorporates a pallet, or even a full composite pack that provides the highest levels of transit protection.

What is a custom pallet?
A custom pallet is one manufactured in a bespoke size. This may be to accommodate a specific product or piece of equipment or make the best use of a particular storage space. Pallets can also include additional features, such as custom pallet collars.
What are the different sizes of pallets?
Besides custom-size pallets, there are four standard and commonly used options. These are full Euro pallets (1200 x 800mm), half Euro pallets (600 x 800mm), standard UK pallets (1200 x 1000mm) and half standard pallets (600 x 1000mm).
What is the difference between UK and EU pallets?
Size is the main difference between Standard (UK) and Euro (EU) size pallets. Euro pallets are 1200 x 800 mm, whilst UK standard pallets are 1200 x 1000 mm.
Are there different types of pallets?
Besides timber pallets, it is possible to source plastic, metal and even corrugated cardboard pallets. However, these are not as widely used or accepted as wooden equivalents.
What is ISPM 15?
ISPM stands for “International Standards for Phytosanitary Measures”. It is effectively the industry standard for pallets and involves heat treatment to eliminate pests, contaminants and disease. Pallets must be ISPM treated if using them for export.
Custom-size pallet pricing
Due to the nature of a custom product, it is only possible to confirm prices once a complete specification is known. Factors including size, strength, treatments and even the required quantity influence the overall cost.
