Custom size pallets

If you manufacture or sell large or unusually sized products, they likely require custom-sized pallets for storage/transportation.

Unlike the widely used standard UK and euro pallet sizes, custom-size pallets are manufactured to your specific requirements. Using custom-size pallets can perfectly accommodate specific products and improve space efficiency within your warehouse and transport.

GWP can manufacture custom-size pallets to virtually any shape and specification you require. Besides this, we can also offer you a complete solution, including a range of pallet boxes, wooden shipping crates and composite packaging. Read more

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.

Advantages of custom-size pallets

The key advantages of custom-size pallets are as follows:

  • Bespoke sizes to perfectly accommodate specific products or equipment.
  • Can help to maximise available space in your warehouse.
  • Can also help to improve the efficiency of your transport,m reducing CO2 emissions.
  • Manufactured using ISPM 15 heat-treated wood, making them suitable for export.
  • All timber from FSC sources to improve sustainability.
  • High quality ensures reusability over many trips.
  • Easily recycled at the end of its usable life.
  • Available with pallet boxes, timber crates and composite packaging.

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.
