Half Euro pallet box

If you need an efficient and secure way to ship or export smaller orders, our half Euro pallet boxes (also known as ½ Europa pallet boxes) are the ideal solution.

Half Euro pallet boxes use a durable corrugated cardboard construction and the widely used half-euro pallet’s 800 x 600 mm footprint. Pallets are also heat treated to ISPM 15 to ensure suitability for export. Half Euro pallet boxes collapse flat, ready for on-site assembly, and to minimise storage when not in use. Read more

About Half Euro pallet boxes

Half euro pallet boxes utilise the widely used 800 x 600 mm pallet size, half the size of the full Europa pallet boxes (themselves 1200 x 800 mm). This sizing provides a more compact option for bulk shipping items within the UK or exporting. These pallet boxes are also ideal for larger items.

The standard sizing means transport and warehousing providers widely accept these pallet boxes, which also help maximise transit and storage efficiency. ISPM 15 heat-treated pallets ensure suitability for international shipping, too.

The durable corrugated cardboard material used for the tray cap and sleeve design ensures excellent protection for items in transit and allows the pallet boxes to be safely stacked. You can also select different board grades (either heavier or lighter weight) depending on your application.

Your half-euro pallet boxes can be supplied flat to save space when not in use, and are quick and easy to assemble.

You can also choose various customisation options, including external print and a wide range of internal dividers, fittings and inserts (such as foam). You can also source custom-sized pallet boxes as required.

What size are half-euro pallet boxes?

Half-euro pallet boxes use the standard 800 x 600mm footprint widely adopted across Europe. The height of the standard pallet boxes is 780mm, but it is possible to alter the height if your business requires custom pallet boxes.

Are half Europa pallet boxes recyclable?

The corrugated cardboard element of the half Europa pallet boxes can be easily recycled. The wooden pallet can also be reused or recycled.

Are these pallet boxes suitable for export?

The wooden pallets used in the pallet boxes are heat treated to ISPM 15 standards, which makes them suitable for export applications.

Can half-euro pallet boxes have logos printed on them?

If you require a large volume or ongoing supply of half-euro pallet boxes, you can choose to have your company logo, branding, instructions or other information printed onto the outside faces of your packs. Print can help with brand awareness, health and safety, and identifying specific products or shipments.

What is a pallet box tray, cap and sleeve?

A pallet box is often created in 3 parts (besides the pallet itself). A tray sits above and is typically fixed onto the pallet. A sleeve then forms the walls of the box, with the cap placed on top forming a lid.

Tailored half-euro pallet box pricing

Although it is possible to source standard half-euro pallet boxes from us, GWP also allows you to specify many bespoke options for your chosen packaging. Height, material grade, external print and inserts are all available.

These options and the total amount of pallet boxes you need can make a difference to the price you pay.

Free quotes and advice

However, to make life easier, you can ask for a free, no-obligation quote on any pallet boxes you need (either stock or bespoke). This approach ensures that you always get the most cost-effective option and the one most suited to your specific application.
