Heat-treated pallets are required for international shipping because the heat-treating process makes the wood pallet resistant to moisture and pests.
Heat Treated Pallets
Why heat treat wood pallets?
Ultimately, wood pallets are subject to mold growth and are attractive to certain pests. When shipping goods overseas on wooden pallets, these pests can also travel around. That’s why wood pallets used in shipping internationally need treatment to kill pests and make the wood sterile.
The Wood Pallet Heat Treating Process
To ensure a quality pallet, Oak Creek Wood Products uses special heat treating equipment to heat wood pallets (and any other wood shipping products) to a temperature of 140 degrees or more for a minimum of 30 minutes to kill any pests and their larvae. We also stamp our heat-treated pallets.
