Custom-size pallet boxes are ideal if you have unusually sized products or equipment to transport and store safely.

Whilst GWP manufactures and supplies a range of standard pallet boxes, we can produce custom-size pallet boxes (and pallets) tailored precisely to your specific requirements. Not only can this accommodate your products, but it can also significantly reduce damage, space requirements and improve transport efficiency (in turn minimising carbon emissions). Read more

About custom pallet boxes

Put simply, if you have unusually shaped items that require safe shipping, the custom pallet boxes are a great option.

Perfect for industrial parts, products and equipment, custom-size pallet boxes are tailored to the exact size and shape to provide optimum protection for your items during transportation.

Supplied with custom-made pallets to accommodate the bespoke dimensions of your packs, custom pallet boxes can also use a specific grade of corrugated material to provide a tailored level of protection against mishandling and other causes of damage. Including custom fittings, such as dividers or foam inserts and lining, can also provide additional protection.

Besides preventing damage, however, there are numerous other benefits provided by using bespoke sizing.

For example, maximising space efficiency allows you to ship more products in a single load. Effectively, you are not paying to ship fresh air within oversized pallet boxes. This benefit is also true for storage in your warehouse.

Specifying custom pallet boxes also allows you to add print and branding to external surfaces. Whilst this provides advertising for your business through the supply chain, you can also add important info such as part numbers, handling instructions and safety messages.

Many products will also not fit in the range of standard pallet boxes available (such as 1/1 or 1/2 Europa pallet boxes), making custom-size pallet boxes the only feasible option.

And finally, the timber element (i.e. custom pallet) can be heat treated following ISMP 15 regulations, ensuring your custom pallet boxes are compatible with exporting requirements and legislation.

Key benefits of custom-size pallet boxes

The specific benefits of custom-size pallet boxes include:

  • Can be tailored to the specific size of your product or equipment to be transported.
  • Suitable for unusually shaped items (very long, large etc.).
  • Supplied with custom-sized pallets.
  • Choice of material strength to suit your application.
  • Bespoke sizing minimises storage and transport costs (through improved space efficiency).
  • Tailored dimensions also help to improve transit protection.
  • The addition of dividers and inserts such as foam further enhances transit protection.
  • Ideally suited to specialist equipment and export applications.
  • Options for external branding, printed handling instructions, batch numbers, etc.

What is a custom-size pallet box?

A custom-size pallet box does not use a common pallet size (standard or Europa) for its footprint. It involves the creation of a bespoke pallet and box, but this approach can accommodate large or unusually shaped items.

Can I purchase standard-size pallet boxes?

Pallet boxes typically correspond to the footprint of standard pallets. This includes 1/1 Europa (1200 x 800mm), ½ Europa (600 x 800mm), 1/1 Container (1100 x 900mm), and ½ container (1100 x 500mm).

Do custom pallet boxes come with custom-size pallets?

If you source a custom-size pallet box, this will typically be supplied with a bespoke pallet, too. GWP can manufacture pallets and pallet boxes to your desired size.

Are custom pallet boxes suitable for export?

Custom pallet boxes are an excellent option for exporting products or equipment your company manufactures or distributes. The corrugated material is durable enough to protect contents during transit, whilst the pallets are heat-treated to meet ISPM 15 regulations.

What cardboard material do custom pallet boxes use?

Custom pallet boxes can use various materials, depending on your application. You can select heavy-duty double or even triple-wall cardboard for heavy items. In contrast, lighter grades are suited to items that require less protection (or where the weight of the overall pack is a crucial consideration).

Custom-size pallet box pricing

Due to the very nature of a custom product, it is impossible to list prices on this website. The overall size, material grade, pallet options, external printing, inserts and even the number of custom pallet boxes you require all influence the price.
